The most anticipated story this past week: the Director's Cut.
For newbies, perhaps the best thing to read to bring yourselves up to date is Mark Perry's two-part article on his recent (summer, 2015) visit to the Bakken. Also, World Oil had a great update.
For long time readers and experts on the Bakken, a discussion regarding all the permits that were issued this week might be interesting for tonight's cocktail parties and various sundry events. There are a lot of story lines here:
economics of the EOG shale oil well. And earlier, a typical EOG 1920-acre overlapping unit.
The story was not all that great, but I loved the headline: the world has come around to the realization that the US shale barrel is the swing barrel.
Although Bakken.com got the story wrong, the original story on Bakken pricing is worth reading.
