  1. Nothing really new in regards to North Dakota oil development but I thought it was interesting that Special Report with Bret Baier did a segment on it.


    1. You are correct: this issue comes up periodically.

  2. Man what a difference in ips !!! Bruce do you think they hit a good pocket or they're just getting better at it?

    1. Four possibilities: a) luck; b) better natural fracking; c) higher pressure d) Baytex is getting better.

      I'll have to go back and compare location of these wells with other Baytex wells, but these are certainly out of the norm for Baytex. If in very same area as other "more" typical Baytex wells, then one almost has to give credit to their team for better IPs. Time will tell, I suppose, and perhaps there will be some additional information yet to come.
