    Dear Folks:
    How much oil is in Nevada?
    Dr. Alan Chamberlain, last week, stated his estimates, that there is almost 1.9 TRILLION barrels of oil in the state. Mind you, since the 1850s, when the first oil was pumped in Pennsylvania, until now, total worldwide oil production is only 1 trillion barrels. Further, many experts (Deffeyes in Hubbert's Peak, for instance) believe that 2 trillion barrels is the total original world supply, meaning we only have 1 trillion left in the whole world. Chamberlain is now on the record as stating that he thinks there is roughly as much oil in Nevada as the rest of the world put together ever had. Any thoughts on this? If Eden Energy finds a couple of billion barrels, investors are rich beyond their collective imaginations; but a couple of trillion barrels?? That number just seems impossibly big. http://www.cedarstrat.com/index.html

    Also:

    I saw an article about Chevron having a nanotech process for
    tar sand oil that's so efficient that $35 oil will be profitable. What if they could develope this tech in combination with CO2 injection for old fields?......

    Here's the link citing Chamberlain saying there are 1.89 trillion
    barrels of oil in Nevada --
    Geologist says White Pine must keep public lands open for oil exploration
    Claims undiscovered oil reserves are '10 times' Saudi Arabia's

    And last Friday, 3/24, there was a follow-up article --

    County modifies wilderness area recommendations to allow oil and gas
    exploration
    Chamberlain identified an area in the White Pine Range in the
    vicinity of Treasure Hill as one of the most important spots to search
    for oil. . . He said the shale south of Wheeler Mountain is some of the richest organic material we've found in the state.

    Well that would be cool. One has to wonder why nobody has drilled it yet.
