It wouldn't do us any good, they would bring workers from other places.

No, it was 20 BBL. That's BB as in billion barrels. That doesn't even take into account the amount of natural gas involved.

Not saying this is untrue, just post a link to where you got your information. I'm sure there's oil and gas (of some amount) under Barbourville because there's oil and gas EVERYWHERE around here--but very little drilling. Also, someone can drill a well at a distance from you and drain all YOUR PROPERTY'S oil or gas through their well--and you don't get one penny since it didn't "come out of the ground" on your property...happens every day. Finally, Union College drilled a gas well, in the 1980's near Brickyard pond, and it supplies much of their gas needs. So, Barbourville has already been tapped.

If this is true the money will go in the same pockets that every other dollar goes in here in good old Knox Co.
