This message was posted from a natural gas company president in the
Rockies on one of my energy listservs:

"My company is currently suspending drilling operations in Oklahoma due
to lack of available water. State, municipal and private water owners
have all told us that they will no longer sell water to us. We are
experiencing similar problems in Colorado, Wyoming and New Mexico, but
not to the degree we have encountered in Oklahoma.

So what we have here in Oklahoma is one resources scarcity (water)
precluding the extraction of another (petroleum) declining resource.

Yea - Hubbert was right, but his science is about so much more than oil...!!"

systems analysis so critical.....
