Business Development: Bakken - the Oil Resource Play

Join the Business Development Study Group at the Four Seasons Hotel as we hear from three distinguished speakers on recent activity and forward direction of the Williston Basin’s Bakken oil resource play. The popular format of a Business & Social Networking hour, with complimentary Hors’ D’ Oeuvres and a cash bar, followed by an hour-long program, will begin at 5:30 pm in the Mezzanine. 

From Marcellus to Haynesville, much focus has been placed on the shale gas resource plays, the rigs needed to develop them, and their exposure to the recent spread in gas-to-oil price ratios. The firmer price support for oil has left the Bakken - an oil resource play - well positioned to weather the current economic storm. Our speakers will be updating us on activity in the Bakken: What are the recent growth areas for the play? Any surprising results? What are the latest trends in well / lateral design and completion techniques? New methods to increase recovery from the Bakken’s unique shale-sand-shale “Oreo” design? Are there any infrastructure vacancies and how are they being resolved? Pricing differentials? What are the main obstacles to continued development? Are their any natural barriers to expansion?
