American geologists have reported the discovery of huge oil and gas reserves in Texas. They hope to find more near the fields where have extracted billions of barrels of energy carrier.

 

The US Geological Survey reported the discovery in Texas of the largest of all known oil reserves in her country. On November 15, on the sait of Civil Service was reported about contained in shale Wolfcamp pool of about 20 billion barrels of oil, 450 billion cubic meters of natural gas and 1,6 billion barrels of liquefied natural gas. These volumes are approximately three times the reserves discovered in 2013 the field Bakken-Three Forks in the Bakken formation in the Williston Basin oil and gas area.

 

The biggest discovery in the history of the US Geological Survey shows that "even in areas where the extracted billions of barrels of oil, still has the potential to discover new billions," was said in the text message. "Technological and industrial changes have a significant impact on what resources can be considered technically recoverable, so we continue to assess the reserves throughout the United States and the world" - said the coordinator of the program of energy resources Geological survey of the US Walter Gidrouz.
