Bobby Thornhill, Pastor Centreville & White's Chapel United Methodist Churches "Having disarmed principalities and pow- ers, He made a public spectacle of them, tri- umphing over them in it." Colossians 2:15 (NKJV) Paul writes to the Co- lossians of the importance of the Cross and of all that this event means for those of us who call ourselves Christians. Other than pro- viding the basis (Christ's personal sacrifice) for the opportunity to receive for- giveness for our sins and to be raised from our graves to be with Him in eterni- ty, there was a secondary effect that served to give notice to the evil forces of this world that God is always in control, and the things that evil accom- plishes are done so only because He allows it to be done. Similar instances of God publicly defeating evil are found in Exodus when Moses and Aaron perform the miracles of the plagues against Pharaoh. The gods of the Egyptians were very publicly defeated by each of the plagues in such a manner that the Egyptians would realize that God is indeed Lord of all. Once again when Elijah defeat- ed the prophets of Baal it was a very public confron- tation by one man against hundreds of false prophets, and God's man was the vic- tor and the Baal worship- pers knew that God alone is sovereign. After cursing God, Goliath was defeat- ed and killed by a mere lad with a slingshot and a stone, with the defeat of his Nation the result of this loss. Understanding why God allows evil to op- erate is more difficult; we can only trust that He is in control and take comfort in the fact that every now and then God reasserts His authority and evil entities are publicly defeated, and once again our faith is bol- stered. 2015 WINNING SURVEY TEAM OF MSU -- Pictured is the 2015 Survey Team from the civil engineering de- partment at Mississippi State Univer- sity with their survey implements.

Congratulations to the team. -- Photo Submitted ar Ae SLha|e News by Bernell McGehee Pricing of crude off is per- haps most tied to quality and Tuscaloosa Marine Shale oil, classified as Louisiana Light Sweet Crude, is among the highest quality crude oils and is priced at a premium over most other crudes, accord- ingly. But, another reason for the premium of TMS oil is that the price of crude is also tied significantly to location beth to location of refineries and to location of oil transpor- tation routes to refineries. According to the latest available information from the U. S. Ener~ Information Administration, we produced about 9 million barrels of crude oil per day in the Unit- ed States in January, 2015, and imported roughly 7 mil- li0n barrels per day. That's a total of roughly 16 million barrels of oil per day needed in the US L LocallY, the Batw Rouge F a~. 9~' r~fip#ry is @le. of using 500,000 barrels of oil per day and refineries in the New Orleans area are capa- ble of using 450,000 barrels of oil per day. So, the TMS is located within a reasonable driving distance of nearly 1 million barrels of crude needs per day or roughly 6% of the country's needs. Perhaps more important- ly, the Capline System has a large diameter pipeline with an off terminal in Liberty which flows to a major oil hub in Illinois for distribution to refineries in that area. This system has been said to have an excess capacity of 100,000 barrels of oil per day and is capable of transporting up to 1,200,000 barrels of oil per day. It is my understand- ing that most oil currently transported comes from oil received from production in the Gulf of Mexico, but the high quality TMS off provides an alternative source of oil for this pipeline. Plans call for another pipe- line to be tied into a terminal to be built across the road from the Capline terminal in Liberty. This pipeline will tie into existing lines along the way to go to a river terminal in the Port Hudson, Louisi- ana, area where oil can be piped direct to nearby termi- nals or placed in barges for transportation to other termi- nals anywhere in the United States.

I don't know what the peak supply rate would be, but an average of 200,000 barrels per day produced over a 40 year peri- od is certainly within reason. We shall see. In the meantime, official information from a few En- cana wells was released re- cently. The Encana Mathis 29-17H-1 reported 22,677 barrels of oil in its first 27 days of production in Febru- ary. Nice. The well has the second longest lateral in the TMS and appeared to be brought online rather slowly. So, it wouldn't surprise me to see March production on this well to be at a higher rate per "day than February production.
