Out here in the great open, individual wells have tanks that are pumped into trucks and the trucks deliver the oil to railcars or pipelines like the unbuilt Keystone. In the Bakken formation which is a huge play, there is enough oil and the pool is going to last long enough that they are building pipelines to take the oil from the wells and directly to terminals or bigger pipelines.
Since a a Bakken well, thanks to the miracle of fracking, can produce up to 3600 barrels a day; a pipeline is the most efficient way to go. Some are trying to stop the fracking and pipelines. A really embarassing amount of wealth is being produced and it hard to make a man who has a good job and money subservient to more guvmint.
Fracking chemicals could all be eaten without harming you other than the veggie oil cleaning out your system and the special sand crystals mostly imported from Russia would be a little sharp when the toilet paper hit them. So nothing very toxic and I don't know of any drinking or industrial water coming from 12-14,000 feet where the shale layer is.
If you know anyone with no dependence on drugs or at least a controllable one who is willing to work hard and wants a six or seven figure income, have them contact me and I will tell them how to get a job there. It won't be fun. Thats why they call it a 'job' and not 'vacation'. Used to be an old saying. Don't sit on your A__ and whine. Go out and get your dime, the way I got mine. Work, it's a beautiful thing!
