James, Jack 2 is just one well. The whole point of this story/discovery
is that prior to Jack 2 striking oil, it was thought that there were no
reserves that deep anywhere. So, when Jack 2 hit it rich, so to speak,
it not only provided a new reserve for possible US resources (I had read
that Jack 2 alone would provide the US with a minimum of 2 years of
petroleum.), but it opened the door for ultra deep drilling all over the
world in areas previously thought barren.
By the way, there would be no pipeline in this equation. From all I
have read, the oil would be pumped directly to tankers for transport to
refineries, and this oil is light and sweet, as they say, easy to refine.

is having to resort to disjointed conversations... :)
