Implications of a Ten Day Refinery Outage

    The Oil Drum | Implications of a Ten Day Refinery Outage

    Looking for a site, seen it earlier this week, that has Refinery status updates. Will post when I find it again.

    National retail gas prices - - Find Low Gas Prices in the USA and Canada

    Houston area news - Houston news, entertainment, search and shopping | - Houston Chronicle

  2. good article, bad news.

  3. The DOE releases daily sitreps on oil production in relation to the Hurricanes at

    As of noon today, the production loss have been ( total shut offs, not accounting for reductions, maybe add 15% to this?)
    Date - Portion of total US Gasoline Production, based on 0.458 of oil being made into gas)

    1-Sep 0.106
    2-Sep 0.135
    3-Sep 0.126
    4-Sep 0.124
    5-Sep 0.047
    6-Sep 0.047
    7-Sep 0.047
    8-Sep 0.031

    13-Sep 0.193
    14-Sep 0.196
    15-Sep 0.182

    The 9/1 - 9/11 reductions are a product of Gustav, the 12th on are from Ike.

    I suspect, based on these numbers and the pipeline delay of 11-19 days as described in the Oil Drum article, that what we are seeing is the first wave of shortages, that supply may improve temporarily to be followed by a much larger shortage. Just speculating, cause no one in the MSM or .Gov will give us much forewarning.

    The DOE will put out a weekly report on Wedneday at

    We will know more then and I also think these shortages will affect the lines through St. Louis/Chicago and thru Dixie the hardest.

    My Advice is get prepped up for hard times ahead, between this and the collapsing Derivatives played on Trillion $ Debt, add a big pinch of probable geopolitical tensions, this economy is soon FUBAR. Better too early to prep than too late, I say.

  4. stop worrying about this petty stuff and get over to the college football thread
