Here's the speech at the signing::

Exerpt from speech:
The bill authorizes research into the prospects of unlocking vast amounts of now -- energy now trapped in shale and tar sands. It provides incentives for oil refineries to expand their capacity, and that's consumer-friendly. The more supply, the more reliable your gasoline will be and the more -- less pressure on price.
I have no idea what happened in Colorado..

The oil shale reserves have been known to be there for many years, so nothing new. It is only with the high price of foreign oil that it could possibly become feasible to process the material and extract the oil. From what I have read in the past it is a very expensive process. Perhaps there is new technology that makes it more of a possibility today.

Thought it might be something until I read the part about how to "make a fortune in oil"
<BLOCKQUOTE class="ip-ubbcode-quote"><div class="ip-ubbcode-quote-title">quote:</div><div class="ip-ubbcode-quote-content"> How to Make a Fortune in Oil </div></BLOCKQUOTE> Then they want to sell you something. I suspect that is how to make a fortune in the oil business - sell stuff to unsuspecting folks who are gullible.
You can bet your bippy that any 'fortunes' to be made would be made by this guy or the oil companies themselves. They don't need investors.

Believe I leave this alone

This is simply hype to get one to subscribe to the "Oil Report". Nothing more.
The shale has been known to exist in Colorado, and many other places, for hundreds of years.
The practicality of doing anything with it is really the question.
http://fossil.energy.gov/programs/reserves/npr/Oil_Shal...ource_Fact_Sheet.pdf
To be fair.... Even if extraction techniques were to improve, CO shale generally produce between 5 and 10 gallons of poor crude per ton of shale mined. In order to be even remotely competitive... even at 100 plus a bbl oil.... shale that yields 25 to 50 bbl of crude per ton mined needs to be sought. None of that rock exists in CO. There are some reserves in Canada and Alaska that could yield that ratio.
To that end.... This article portrays some easy answer.
There is not an easy answer here.
Drawing oil from a rock is about as easy a drawing water from one.
Not too mention the incredible environmental devastation that would occur here.
If it made sense to mine Colorado shale it would be done. Even in tougher times this is not even remotely practical.
We need to move off of an easy solution mentality and reinvest our tax monies into researching alternatives to mid east oil.
Cheers.

MG

There are between 300 and 500 wells in Colorado and Utah that are capped because there is no place to refine the oil. If we had oil refineries in the US to handle it we would not have to worry about opec. Sadly until we tell the enviromentalist to take a leap and also until we force congress to change the rules for refineries it wont happen any time soon.
In utah and colorado alone they drill and cap an average of two wells per month in the preparation for he time that we do decide to build refineries again.

In the early 1980's, CA passed legislation prohibiting the construction of new/replacement oil refineries to replace 10 that were closed because they could no longer meet CA standards. I wonder if that(not in my backyard syndrome) has any connection?

D'ya spoze the fact that no permits for new construction of refineries have been let in 25 years could have an effect. Huh?

We in AZ have been trying to build a refinery for 20+ years to no avail.

Theres a man here in Utah who owns some oil wells some where and he could not get his oil processed so he is paying 3 billion dollars and building his own refinery. Congress told him he cant do that and he told them to try and stop him. From what I hear they have not done a thing about it yet.
