Quotes

...Appeals concerning EPA's 'Enhanced Coordination Process' and guidance affecting coal mining in Appalachia is completely wrongheaded," said Rahall. "The Court believes the EPA is not treating guidance as binding, but West Virginia coal miners know differently. With new requirements not envisioned by the Congress, the so-called 'enhanced coordination' is a euphemism for EPA control. EPA has created a permitting process with no end, stringing permit applicants along indefinitely, constantly changing the permitting goalposts. I stand with our coal miners and will continue to work to block EPA from using this heavy-handed approach against coal. Today's decision is not the end of the debate - Congress will have something say."
"As baffling as it was that the Mining Association and representatives of several state governments challenged the effort by EPA and the Corps to agree upon a process by which they work together on permitting actions, it is ever soso much more gratifying today that the appeals court affirmed the legality, not to mention the wisdom, of such interaction" said Cindy Rank of the West Virginia Highlands Conservancy
...globenewswire.com/cache/25624/file/27512.pdf H Baird Whitehead, President and Chief Executive Officer stated, "This acquisition is an optimal fit with our current acreage position in Lavaca County, and we believe is primarily prospective in the Upper Eagle Ford Shale, but could also have potential in the Lower Eagle Ford Shale and Austin Chalk. With the recently announced results of the Welhausen #A-2H, which was completed in the Upper Eagle Ford Shale, and its performance of approximately 730 barrels of oil per day and 1,390 barrels of oil equivalent per day after almost two months of production, we are increasingly confident about the Upper Eagle Ford potential across a large portion of our acreage position, including this acquired acreage. We will also hit our minimum corporate target of 100,000 net acres in the Eagle Ford Shale, and will continue to expand our position primarily through an ongoing leasing effort."
...That, according to Money Morning's , will keep high. "The longer the unrest takes place in Iraq in general, and Baghdad in particular, uncertainty will ripple through the market" Moors said on CNBC last week
