"Yep, as Obama moves the U.S. towards Socialism, Russia is moving towards Capitalism" . You wrote that? So, am I to conclude that Russia's oil fields, exploration and all that are all privately-owned and that U.S. oil exploration and production have all been nationalized and are now state-owned?Yep, as Obama moves the U.S. towards Socialism, Russia is moving towards Capitalism.
Russia to expand explorers' rights to oil, metals finds By Vladimir Soldatkin
MOSCOW | Fri Feb 22, 2013
Feb 22 (Reuters)- Russia, seeking to boost remote oil and metal rich territories, is looking at new laws to loosen state control of big fields and ensure explorers can keep their finds, its natural resources minister said on Friday.
Russia's oil industry, the world's largest at 10.4 million barrels per day of production in 2012, is increasing reserves rapidly without much exploration but more effort will be needed to keep replacing reserves at a rapid pace.
The oil industry has called for incentives such as those in place in rival producers like Norway to ensure reserves are in place to prevent a future decline.
Miners, too, have called for incentives for new exploration in Russia's remote provinces to boost gold reserves.
Among the biggest obstacles to has been the uncertain returns for explorers. If finds are big enough, they can be deemed strategic and must be handed over to the state.
Donskoi said the government was ready to review a draft law which would ensure large discoveries could be developed by their finders.
And those Russian oilfields, you think, will welcome private foreign investors with open arms? Ever heard about the utter miseries of anyone wanting to invest in Russia? Capitalism my eye!
Rogue, you have not a clue what you are talking about. Just the fact that you are even discussing countries other than yours (where you're not too hot either) would be like me conducting the Vienna Philarmonic Orchestra.
And to top it off, you are quoting Reuters, that news agency that you labelled leftist the the other day, remember?
Where are my 4 proofs from 3 days ago, my proof from 2 days ago and the one from this morning where you again ignorantly stated, not guessed or thought or believed, no,stated that Dems fraud more at election time than Repubs. Oh, I see you never replied to Poppos's post who showed 5 websites showing Republicans who cheated and were even arrested at voting precincts. Funny bow you ignore those things. But you'll note that Poppo's so much smarter than you. He didn't claim Repubs frauded more than Dems -- he know's no one can really tell, except that both probably cheat, yes.
