UFOs at Eagle Ford Shale ??

For those that haven’t heard the buzz about UFO sightings in the Eagle Ford Shale drilling area, it has created quite a stir among residents and alien enthusiasts alike. Personally, I find the thought of a UFO to be fun, of course that could change pretty quickly if I come face-to-face with one. From what I have heard, these sightings are difficult to tell how close or real they really are.

The thought of a UFO sighting may sound terrifying to some, but I welcome any sort of extraterrestrial visitors to Eagle Ford Shale or any other drilling spot. In fact, if their ship (or whatever sort of craft they fly through the universe on) breaks down, I will gladly sell them a few generators to power back up. Of course, I doubt they deal in dollars or any other type of earthly currency, but I guess we will just have to cross that bridge when we get to it.

The most recent UFO sighting in the southern region of Texas explains a lot — with all the new residents traveling to the area for drilling work, it is only fitting that an aircraft full of aliens wants to join the party. They must have felt left out.

The Power of Being Alien

On several occasions during starry October nights, drillers in the Eagle Ford Shale region spotted UFO lights in the sky above. Then, to elevate their story, a surveillance camera also spotted an object resembling a flying saucer with several distinct and blaring lights.

Sorry, but I just can’t help think a flying saucer like that must require an immense amount of power generation. I sure hope they have a backup power source, or perhaps a few diesel generators on-board. What am I saying? They probably have a more efficient energy source that never fails. What I would give to be an alien for a day.

With the recent influx in UFO sightings, all of the new residents of La Salle County must be wondering if the aliens are trying to get in on some of the oil drilling action in the area, especially since one of the sightings was directly over a drilling site.

Are The Sightings For Real?

For those wondering about the validity of the UFO sightings, many of the cell phone and surveillance pictures and videos have passed numerous authenticity tests proving they were not falsified in any way. Which leads to the conclusion that someone is either investing a lot of money on an extremely elaborate prank, or the sightings are a legitimate UFO.

One of the most interesting things about the numerous UFO sightings in the Eagle Ford Shale area is that not one person has reported them to the authorities. The La Salle County Sheriff’s Department has no reports on file of people calling about UFO sightings in the area.

Why Drilling Sites?

Once the initial shock of the UFO sightings wore off, many people in Eagle Ford Shale began to speculate about the symbolism behind the UFO sightings over drilling sites. While some people say the sight of a UFO could easily be compared to a simple flicker of city lights or a military aircraft flying overhead, others insist that UFOs are seen over drilling fields for a reason.

Like the other remote sightings, UFOs are often spotted in desert areas, many of which surface over oil wells. This leads some theorists to believe that the UFOs are looking to fuel up their spaceships with crude oil. I still think UFOs run on some power source we don’t even know about yet, but I’ll leave the speculation to everyone else. Another interesting correlation is that almost all UFO sightings are near bodies of water, which suggests aliens and/or their ships need water. Are we sounding like a conspiracy theorist website yet?

Whether you live around Eagle Ford Shale or are just interested in UFOs, keep your eye out for the buzz about UFOs in the area. And if you find one that breaks down, give us a call and we will hook them up with a few generators. For the record, Worldwide Power Products does not judge or discriminate against extraterrestrials.

Cost of Diesel and Natural Gas Generators

When planning to purchase or to rent a generator for your business, the kind of fuel that the generator uses–typically natural gas or diesel–may not be your primary consideration. If you’re ordering a generator because a storm is imminent and you need to know that you’ll have the power you rely on to do business, chances are that you’ll be more concerned about weathering the storm. If you’ve lost power in storms before, you know it can damage your bottom line to go without power for anywhere from a few hours to a few weeks. I’m sure you never want that to happen again! Many people purchase a generator for their business for that very sense of security.

True Generator Costs

When shopping for a generator, you’ll get more bang for your buck if you can remember that generator costs don’t end once you purchase the unit. No matter which type you go with, generators require fuel to run. If you choose a diesel generator, a fuel supplier will need to deliver that fuel to your generator.

Oil Prices and Generators

While natural gas prices fluctuate throughout the year, the fuel is widely abundant in the U.S.–and the world–and less expensive than diesel. In May, 2012, natural gas cost $2.30 per million BTU, a measure equivalent to approximately 8,000 gallons. In contrast, diesel fuel cost $4 per gallon in May, 2012, per CNN. Since late 2008, oil prices have been rising steadily; by June, 2012, oil cost double what it did in December 2008. Because the cost of oil fluctuates extremely, the cost to refuel your generator can go up hundreds of dollars overnight and could continue to rise unchecked.

At Worldwide Power Products, we offer a range of natural gas generators, both new and used, for rental and for sale. By choosing a natural gas generator, you will avoid paying more over time for your generator in fuel costs. Do you have a story about rising oil costs impacting your bottom line? I’d love to hear it!
