With less cash flowing in, shale firms need to slash their investment by over two-thirds if they are to balance their books. If spending falls, production will follow. And the capital markets may not always remain open: about half of shale firms, owing $85 billion of debt between them, have distressed balance-sheets. The pace of capital-raising has slowed in the past few weeks.
The wild card is the oil price. Many shale bosses are betting that they will be bailed out by higher prices. Oilmen are optimists by nature—why else would you drill holes in the ground? But if prices do not rise there will be a reckoning, with more firms defaulting, being bought or selling their assets. That would lead to short-term losses among banks and investors. America’s shale industry needs to drill through its past if it is to emerge leaner and meaner than ever before.
" Former school district police Lt. Daniel M. Burgess claims the Clark County School District fired him for cooperating with the FBI and reporting that 18-year-old Kevin Miranda and other minors were served alcohol and played beer pong with off-duty police officers during a dispatcher's party.
After the party, Miranda ran a red light, struck a car driven by 24-year-old UNLV student Angela Peterson and killed her. He pleaded guilty to felony drunk driving causing death and was sentenced to six to 17 years in prison.
Days after the Nov. 28, 2009 party and accident, Burgess says, he learned of the "improper and illegal conduct," and that department officials, including then-Police Chief Filiberto "Phil" Arroyo and current Police Chief James Ketsaa, "began their attempts to cover up - rather than investigate - the involvement of Clark County School District and its employees in sponsoring" the party."
