North Dakota and Montana Drilling Fluids

rotaryone3dRotary ONE Services / Maheshu Drilling Fluids is a Certified MHA TERO Indian Contractor working several projects in North Dakota and Montana. Were following the play in the  Bakken Shale Formation . There are now over 4,000 active oil wells in North Dakota and that estimate is forecast to rise as more and more oil is extracted.  Some of the sweet spots in Baken Shale Oil Field by city are:  Beluh, Hazen, Parshall, Garison, Washburn.  Bakken Shale Oil Field Counties: Mountrail County, Dunn County, Mercer County. 

The Bakken Shale Oil field, which stretches down from Canada into North Dakota and Montana, could hold 3.65 billion barrels in oil reserves which would be the largest finding in U.S history next to the Oil fields in Alaska.  This oil shale formation is located in the Williston Basin according to the U.S. Geological Survey. Bakken formation is a rich deposit that the U.S. Geological Survey calls the largest continuous oil accumulation it has ever assessed.  On top of this, landowners are striking it rich as they sell their drilling rights ( mineral rights ) to drilling companies.  Looking for an Oil field Job in Bakken Formation?  Check out my Bakken Jobs Section.

In 1995, the USGS surveyed the Bakken area in which they found roughly 151 million barrels of recoverable oil.  Since then, there have been many technological advances causing the big spike to 3.65 billion barrels of recoverable oil.  The biggest oil field, which is located at the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge in Alaska (ANWAR), could potentially hold up to 10 billion barrels of oil.

The Bakken Shale Formation Play, also referred to as the North Dakota Shale, was deposited in the more central and deeper portion of the Williston Basin.  In addition to North Dakota, Montana, and Saskatchewan, a small part of Manitoba is involved in Canada.  The Williston Basin extends down into South Dakota as well but is not considered part of the Bakken Oil Shale Play.  If you need drilling fluids in these locations Rotary One is capable of delving a high-end, cost effective solutions in a timely manner.

The greatest Bakken oil production comes from Elm Coulee Oil Field, Richland County, Montana, where production began in 2000 and is expected to ultimately total 270 million barrels. In 2007, production from Elm Coulee averaged 53,000 barrels per day (8,400 m3/d) — more than the entire state of Montana a few years earlier.[12]

New interest developed in 2007 when EOG Resources out of Houston, Texas reported that a single well it had drilled into an oil-rich layer of shale below Parshall, North Dakota was anticipated to produce 700,000 barrels (111,000 m3) of oil.[13] This, combined with other factors, including an oil-drilling tax break enacted by the state of North Dakota in 2007,[14] shifted attention in the Bakken from Montana to the North Dakota side.[citation needed] The number of wells drilled in the North Dakota Bakken jumped from 300 in 2006[15] to 457 in 2007.[16] Those same sources show oil production in the North Dakota Bakken increasing 229%, from 2.2 million barrels (350,000 m3) in 2006 to 7.4 million barrels (1,180,000 m3) in 2007.

Where is Oil in Bakken Shale Formation being drilled the most?  There have been a record number of oil drilling rigs grinding away at the land.  There are now over 4,000 active oil wells in North Dakota and that estimate is forecast to rise as more and more oil is extracted.  Some of the sweet spots in Baken Shale Oil Field by city are:  Beluh, Hazen, Parshall, Garison, Washburn.  Bakken Shale Oil Field Counties: Mountrail County, Dunn County, Mercer County.  If you have land in these areas, you have probably been approached by some of the companies below in regard to selling your
mineral rights.  Some of you might even work on an oil rig in the bakken formation.
