The Charity Masquerade Ball was a fund-raising event in which all proceeds went to March of Dimes to help fund research to prevent prema- ture births, birth defects and infant mortality. With the help from the event's spon- sors, a total of $8,775 was raised. '%Ve are indeed grateful to each of you for your enthu- siastic support, which helps us carry out the March of Dimes' mission to improve the health of babies through programs of community ser- vices, education, advocacy and research," event organiz- ers stated. Event organizers said, "We Would certainly like to thank the many sponsors who so graciously made do- nations which made this event such a huge success. We couldn't have done it without you." Tu$coloosa JVtarine Shale News by Bernell McGehee U. S. crude oil and fuel inventories continue to grow and oil prices con- tinue to be low as a result. Specifically, the Decem- ber price for oil paid by Encana to royalty owners in the Tuscaloosa Marine Shale was $60.33 per bar- rel. Drilling and fracking activity in the TMS has been stifled from these low prices and many are suggesting the TMS likely needs an oil price of $80+ to encourage full drilling. I was discussing our situation with the Ger- man business journalist who visited here a couple of weeks ago. His specialty area of business reporting happened to be automo- bile manufacturing and he offered a little perspective on the future of oil from that angle. It seems that the larg- est consumption of oil is by vehicles and the num- ber of cars around the world is growing with a great deal more growth likely. For example, the Unit- ed States has a population of roughly 322 million and .8 cars per person for a total of 258 million auto- mobiles. Meanwhile, China and India have populations of 1,393 and 1,267.mi!- lion and cars pr,pT_s0n of :.1 and: .04r esPecbi'voiy That's 190 million cars. So, the U. S. has 170% of the number of cars of China and India combined with only 12% of the popu- lation. My German acquain- tance offered simply that there is a LOT of room for growth in auto usage go- ing forward and, in fact, that increase is underway. Worldwide car sales have grown from an aver- age of around 50 million per year in 2010 to over 70 million per year in 2014. It is estimated that 74 million cars will be sold in 2015. I realize that miles per gallon of gasoline are im- proving, but that improve- ment isn't keeping pace with population growth and increased usage per person. In summary, there is an obvious glut in oil be- ing produced today and the low prices reflect this imbalance. Yet, there is also an obvious long term trend toward a higher de- mand for oil. And, oil is what the Tuscaloosa Marine Shale holds. The outlook for TMS oil, over the long term, appears promising. All that written, my crystal ball is broken and I neither guarantee a full development of the TMS nor offer a prediction of when/if it may occur. Still Before I get into the summary of activity in the TMS today, let me mention that Trinidad Rig #125 should be moving from the McIntosh/Reese site east of Centreville to the Bloomer site 18 miles west of Woodville off of Hwy. 24. The Mclntosh/ Reese are Encana wells while the Bloomer is a Sanchez well. That. said, let's see where we are today with all pre-praduction activ- ity in the TMS, as of this writing.
