Week 20: May 14, 2017 -- May 20, 2017

(Outside of politics), the big story of the week might have been the fact that WTI finally closed slightly above $50.

Also, for the first time in a very long time, the North Dakota oil story was linked on The Drudge Report.

This post is the #23,000th post on The Million Dollar Way. Ten posts are in draft but there are well more than ten posts over at the "wells of interest" site.

To the best of my knowledge, I now have the most posts of any ad-free, non-subscription blog that focuses on the Bakken with political notes and notes to granddaughters.


  1. Congratulations on presenting such an informative body of work, Mr. Oksol

    1. You are very welcome. I'm in the process of posting those things that now interest me about the Bakken. Give me a few more minutes. What I have learned from blogging and what I have learned from readers about the American oil and gas industry is quite incredible. For me the best part of the blog is the continuing updates of older posts.
