GI First 60 - 90 Day Average Bakken Horizontal Production by Well. Available in paper map format ($20) or download online. Using a geology-based assessment methodology, the U.S. Geological Survey estimated mean undiscovered volumes of billion barrels of oil, trillion cubic feet of associated/dissolved natural gas, and million barrels of natural gas liquids in the Bakken Formation of the Williston Basin Province, Montana and North Dakota.

    Geology. The Bakken Formation is ­Mississippian and Devonian in age and consists of Upper, Middle, and Lower members. The focus of this paper is to review work in both the Middle Bakken member and the lower Three Forks intervals contained within the Bakken Petroleum System. The USGS estimates that there may be to billion barrels of undiscovered, technically recoverable oil in the Bakken Formation (with a mean estimate of billion barrels). These are estimates of oil that has yet to be found, but if found, could be produced using .

Horizontal drilling can increase the productivity in low-permeability rocks by bringing the well bore much closer to the source of the fluid. (F) Installation of underground utilities Utility line: Utility service lines such as those delivering electricity, water, or natural gas are sometimes installed by directional drilling.

Horizontal drilling and hydraulic fracturing: Advances in drilling and well stimulation made the Bakken Formation a viable oil and gas ntal drilling enables wells to have a much longer "pay zone" than a traditional vertical well.

Hydraulic fracturing produces porosity in the rock unit that facilitates movement of oil or gas to the well. Together, these methods allow a single. In the U.S. horizontal drilling methods have been reasonably successful in source rocks, chalks and in coning applications.

Book Chapter Bakken Shale and Austin Chalk Author(s) Geology and horizontal drilling of the Bakken Formation book Shale and Austin Chalk", Geological Aspects of Horizontal Drilling, R. Bakken oil is recovered from the deep shale rock by horizontal drilling and hydraulic fracturing.

Horizontal drilling occurs after drilling down vertically and then making a curve so that the drill runs horizontally.

In the Bakken region, oil companies can drill down 2 miles and then angle the instrument horizontally for another 2 to 3 miles to. Horizontal drilling began in the field inand to date, more than wells have been drilled. The estimated ultimate recovery for the field is more than million bbl of oil ( million m 3).

The Bakken Formation in the field area consists of three members: (1). The Bakken Shale was first discovered over 50 years ago when a well was drilled on the play's namesake's property - Henry Bakken. Not much activity ensued, but various companies attempted to develop the oil bearing formation.

There wasn't much success until horizontal drilling incited a short boom in the early s. Bakken Shale Companies. While the Bakken experienced multiple small scale booms over the past 60 years, it was a horizontal well drilled in the Elm Coulee Field by a partnership between Lyco Energy and Halliburton that incited our modern boom.

The Elm Coulee was proven economic in and operators began expanding into North Dakota after EOG's Parshall discovery in The Bakken Formation (/ ˈ b ɑː k ən /) is a rock unit from the Late Devonian to Early Mississippian age occupying aboutsquare miles (, km 2) of the subsurface of the Williston Basin, underlying parts of Montana, North Dakota, Saskatchewan and formation was initially described by geologist J.W.

Similar to the Bakken formation, the Three Forks formation has recently been exploited utilizing the same horizontal drilling and advanced completion techniques as the Bakken development. Drilling in the Three Forks formation began in mid and a number of operators are currently drilling wells targeting this formation.

The Bakken Formation has poor porosity which reduces the ability of the gas and oil to flow out of this horizon. Recently, horizontal drilling of lateral holes combined with hydraulic fracturing (“fracking”) has resulted in substantial production from thick formations that have poor porosity.

The lower Bakken shale (source bed) overlies the Three Forks Formation (reservoir). • Thickness and thermal maturity control source bed hydrocarbon expulsion volumes.

• Three Forks oil saturations are a function of overlying source bed properties. • Downward hydrocarbon charge in low permeability rock can extend over ft. The most successful low-permeability oil play to date is the Bakken Formation of the Williston Basin. The revolution has been brought about by a combination of horizontal drilling, multistage hydraulic fracturing, and three-dimensional seismic surveys.

This book is a usefulprimer for geophysicists, geologists, and petroleum engineers in. The middle Bakken Formation of the Williston Basin is the focus of current horizontal drilling activity.

The middle Bakken consists of six distinct facies over much of the basin. Each facies represents deposition in shallow to deep shelf environments (neritic). Facies are subdivided on the basis of lithologic and biologic aspects. The Bakken Formation in the Williston Basin, North Dakota, USA, is an unconventional reservoir that has been one of the major producers of oil for almost 50 years.

Recently with new advancements in horizontal drilling, hydraulic fracturing and Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) techniques, this formation is considered one of the most prolific oil.
