'ConocoPhillips is San Juan County's most prolific oil and gas driller and a major employer'

Wait one minute, Chuck Slothower: What about ExxonMobil ? What about BP ?
Both being several times larger than ConocoPhillips and have major lease holdings in San Juan County as well !!

And while we are on the subject, why don't you explain to the people what the 'most prolific oil and gas driller' is ? Conono/Phillips does not even own a drilling rig, much less employee a 'driller'!!

Globally you guys are correct, although I am not sure who "PB" is. However ConocoPhillips is the largest producer in the San Juan Basin by far.

And ConocoPhillips owns the wells being drilled, so technically the article is correct.

I'm not a huge fan of Conoco Phillips nor will I rush to their defense... but WOW you may be the most uninformed person to EVER post anything.

Conoco isn't in the drilling business - they hire rigs as subcontractors
BP and Exxon are larger than Conoco but not several times.
Conoco has several times more wells in this area than BP and Exxon combined. The article isn't comparing the entire size of each company, the article is pointing out that Conoco is far and away the largest operator in this area.

Please move away so the IQ of San Juan County can rise.

Why don't they stop fleecing us at the gas pump, and let US decide who WE can afford to donate to. We have no money left to donate to anybody. They steal our money and step up like big-shots and throw crumbs to the people. Very galiant!

Oil production, marketing and refining is a global thing. Oil is at 113 buck a bbl becuase demand is out pacing supply. If you want the price of oil to drop, increase the supply. Simple stupid stuff.
Plus, Conoco produces natural gas and very little liquid hydrocarbons.(This is why the refinery in Bloomfield shut down.)
We will have to deal with equalibrium price until the unwashed masses create a global command economy or we increase the supply of energy.

My comments were about the writer, not about Conoco - what an idiot, coming to the defense of Conoco, what say you about the DT ?

As was pointed out earlier, ConocoPhillips is the smallest of the three largest operators in the area. If you look at it from a global context, then ConocoPhillips is the smallest of the top 27 global operators.

There money you get is "tax diductable" and there accountants tell them just how much to give where it cost them nothing....You're getting someone elses money, but good on you. Oil Companies don't give away money for nothing. It cost them nothing...and they get good will. God bless them.

But then, Look at EPNG.

ConocoPhilips has zero production on the Nation. All of the majors bailed off the rez years ago becuase of the corruption, grifting and nepotism.
The party of no - the Democrats, are to blame for the soon $5 gas and $6 dollar deisel.
Democrat voters, as a group are against;
- Tortise killing solar power plants
- Bird and view killing wind farms
- Modern and safer nuke plants
- Fruadulant experiments that created the notion of low sulphur deisel
- A 'red tape' ban on deep water Gulf drilling
- An emotionally based ban on domestic refineries that has forced us to import refined oil products
Your price at the pump is the result of voting for Change, and more change will be needed to fill your tank. LOL
Good luck and watch, "The Prize", a PBS documentary that will explain our tenuous population expansion on the back of cheap energy.
May Richardson, as both the Energy Sec. and Govenor, Salazar the Sec. of the Interior and Obama as President, see the economic destruction they have done by appealing to their emotionally driven base.
Enjoy our new 3 year global business cycle,

The greed stems from American consumers that need to shop at Walmart and have cable TV. Your government check is paid in full, by cheap energy.
Be carefull of what you wish for,
