Bakken and Three Forks
The Bakken and Three Forks Reservoirs, located in Montana and North Dakota, produce crude oil and natural gas. At 14,700 square miles, the Bakken is the largest continuous crude oil accumulation in the United States. Continental estimates the Bakken and Three Forks collectively hold 24 billion barrels of potentially recoverable crude oil equivalent – 20 billion in oil and 4 billion in natural gas. If we are correct, this discovery would double current U.S. oil reserves.
