Financial Investments with Oil and Gas


Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt testifying at a Jan. 18 confirmation hearing on his nomination as administrator of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.


With Pruitt Leading EPA, Oklahoma Oil Firm Gains Ground in Fight Against Regulation

Shortly after taking over as head of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, former Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt started a roll-back of Obama-era environmental regulations, an effort that has provided big benefits to one of his home state’s largest independent oil and gas companies, the New York Times reports. Pruitt has long maintained a close […] Full Story

OCC Oil and Gas Data Files – Oklahoma Corporation Commission

 

 

Quotes  by Adam Wilmoth Of  NewsOK :

All the executives boasted of reduced debt and improved techniques and processes designed to cut costs and increase oil and natural gas production. Executives from all four companies said they plan to boost drilling efforts in Oklahoma in 2017 and into the future.

Oklahoma Business Briefs: Oklahoma oil prices and drilling report for Monday, July 17, 2017Futures File: Grain, gasoline and geopolitics top commodity market weekly roundup

“These are the best wells we’ve drilled in our careers,” Jack Stark, Continental Resources’ president and chief operating officer, said of some of the company’s new wells in central Oklahoma.

Production costs have tumbled in the downturn to the point where producers in many cases are making more money today at $50 oil than they did three years ago when oil sold for $100 a barrel.

“Looking beyond 2017, we expect significant annual production growth over the next few years,” said John Hart, Continental Resources’ senior vice president and chief financial officer. “We should be able to grow production 20 percent annually and remain cash neutral at $60 to $65 oil.”   READ FULL ARTICLE

Some feel now that Trump has lifted the ban on Drilling for Oil and Gas, purchasing Mineral Right’s should be a winner for investing in 2017

CGG Land (U.S.) Inc. is conducting A 150 MILE (radius) 3D Seismic Mineral Surveys which Grady and Caddo counties of Oklahoma are included. The testing of over 150 miles in the two counties listed means production is starting to ramp up. Oil companies are looking to pump oil and gas. This is the best time to acquire the mineral rights for your financial future. The US Oil and Gas supplies are enormous and continues to be a vital commodity.

This investment can be passed down through generations, from your children, to your Grandchildren and to their children. Creates a monthly income and every 3 year lease re-sign, gets you a lump sum check.

Invest in Oil and Gas, and not just a promise note from the Stock exchange. We have already experienced the downfall of the stock market. Don’t wait for the next one before you broaden your portfolio. My Grandfather always told me “not to put all my eggs into one basket”.

Mineral owners survived the crash, the Scams and the Fraud. They still have what they brought to the table. Unfortunately, that is not true for the stocks. Owning mineral rights is a great way to invest in your future and financial security. Always has been and always will be.

What do we really know about Alternative Medicine?


Sometimes it’s hard to get through the door

Stepping Out Of the Comfort Zone

Sometimes we need to open the windows on our boxes and look out. If we are brave enough we can open the door and step out of the box.

We have been programmed into staying within our boxes. It’s safe and comfortable and society says it’s “the RIGHT thing to do”. With scientists revealing more treatments involving alternative medicine, it’s time we took a look outside. Every day new technology and research is being accomplished you won’t hear about in main stream news.

The struggle has been hard with Alternative Medicine research and technology being suppressed for so many years. Throughout this time we have been told to think it’s a hoax, these doctors are quacks and they are just out to take your money. Yes, in some cases I will agree. But there are real Holistic/Alternative treatments that work and honest doctors providing the treatment.

How do you think the Chinese survived for so many years? Still to this day they rely on Chinese Medicine, herbs, roots and other natural ingredients to make medicines.

If you think about it, if we all just understood how pharmaceutical companies derived their medicines. It would be a financial downfall for the pharmaceutical companies. If only we would ALL look outside that door. We could really change health care as we westerners know it.

 

For an example is the Medical Marijuana medicine. Big Pharmaceutical companies have lobbied against any form of legalization. They are at their wits end because they cannot patent marijuana and they cannot come up with the absolute formula that works the same as the real thing.

Marijuana is a plant that grows natural on earth and goes back in time as a healing medicine. Pharmaceutical CBD and THC therapies are synthetic.

There are plants on earth that cure illnesses. This is how Big Pharma came up with all the BIG $$$ synthetic medicine, but one drawback is Synthetics come with all the side effects… Some medicines have over 50 pages of CAUTION SIDE EFFECTS.

Natural, there is nothing like the real thing to heal the human body.

I use to be very skeptical, until I actually experienced alternative medicine work. Not cancer but other illnesses. If I would have never opened that door and stepped outside, I would have stayed closed minded to alternative remedies and cures.

I just wanted you to know my eyes are wide open and looking at things differently these days, that’s all. Let’s Explore Our World and Everything It Has To Offer…

Vinegar, All the Wonderful Things It Can Do!


I recommend you that you drink the Vinegar Cocktail Everyday.

Vinegar, All the Wonderful Things It Can Do!

The greatest gift that will save you from dieting grows on trees and is then fermented into a beautiful bounty of goodness for your body.

Vinegar can do everything from relieving muscle pain from exercise, balancing pH levels, soothing sore throats, and normalizing weight and helping to maintain levels of cholesterol already in the normal range.

Externally, it is effective in supporting healthy skin and hair. Use it topically to give yourself a vinegar facial for toning or clearing up non-cystic acne and exfoliating dry dull skin. Gently rub your skin with a soft cotton ball dipped in vinegar and watch your skin glow!

It’s also great for animals.

Use it as a soothing after-bath rinse for cats and dogs to eliminate dry skin. Just as with people, it is also helpful in older animals. The high acidity and powerful enzymes in apple cider vinegar also supports a healthy scalp. Try a rinse of apple cider vinegar after you wash your hair. It gives hair incredible shine and bounce!

 

It’s so easy to incorporate vinegar into your daily diet.

Get healthy and loose that extra waistline you have been carry around.

When you wake up in the morning just make a delicious cocktail using 2 teaspoons of raw, organic apple cider vinegar, and if you need a sweetener, use organic honey, 100% maple syrup, or molasses to taste. If you are diabetic, use the sweet substitute stevia. I recommend you use only distilled water.

 

Bragg USDA Gluten Free Organic Raw Apple Cider Vinegar, With the Mother 16 ounces

This “Bragg Healthy Cocktail” is designed to flush out wastes that are clogging the organs of elimination, the bowels, lungs, skin, and the kidneys. Take it at least twice a day, and you will start to see changes like increased energy, soft skin, and decreased muscle and joint aches from exercise.

Make sure you use raw, organic vinegar, never dead, distilled vinegar because the natural enzymes, minerals, and nutrients are destroyed in the distilling process. Any vinegar that is clear and has no “mother” (the strand-like substance in the bottom of the bottle) has no nutritional value. Natural raw vinegar should be pungent, with a rich, brownish color and a visible “mother.”

Drinking apple cider vinegar daily, and eating a largely fresh, organic, vegetarian diet, along with following a simple fitness program, will change your life so dramatically you will never go back to your old ways! Get fit, get healthy, and live a long and happy life!

 

You May Ask: What is Natural Apple Cider Vinegar?

Different from the refined and distilled vinegar usually found in supermarkets, Natural Apple Cider Vinegar is made from fresh, crushed, organically grown apples and allowed to mature in tanks, which boosts its natural fermentation qualities. When mature, it contains a web-like substance, called “mother” that becomes visible when the rich brownish liquid is held to the light.

Just a few more plus’s…

Ohh My Head & Tummy Are you Hungover?

Apple Cider Vinegar is believed to help the Liver dissolve poisonous matter, like to much alcohol. It also balances the pH levels and tops up any deficiency in minerals such as potassium, calcium, magnesium, sodium and iron, which your alcohol soaked body is craving.

 

 

Are your finger nails brittle and soft?

Try Bragg Apple Cider Vinegar. It all starts from the inside. You could be missing trace minerals or your PH is off. The nutrients and acids naturally found in ACV are not only great for strengthening nails, they are also known to heal and prevent microbial infections that sometimes cause excessive breakage and yellowing. You can make one of the Bragg ACV recipes or purchase bottled Bragg Healthy cocktail mixes.

YO – YO DIETING IS A CYCLE
