Kansas Oil

The current oil spill crisis in the Gulf of Mexico has us all concerned about oil rig safety. Did you know that in 2009 Kansas had 45,579 oil wells across the state? In 2009 these oil wells produced 39,465,527 barrels of oil. Each well in the state is regulated by the Kansas Corporation Commission. Kansas Statute 55-152 gives the Kansas Corporation Commission authority to write regulations regarding oil and gas production and conservation in Kansas.

Certainly BP has to pay for what they have done. However, I hope the left does not use this as an opportunity to shut down new drilling. You know how many other nations now drill off our coast right now?? You'd be surprised. The only country to suffer would be the U.S.
