I'm heading out for the day; will post again later this evening.
But folks should really read Mike Filloon's recent article very, very closely. There are some interesting things he says in that article about completion techniques and strategies in the Bakken. Read the article from the standpoint of geology and well completion in the Bakken, not from an investing point of view.
I will come back later and talk about it from a layman's point of view, and be completely wrong and humiliated. LOL.
