  1. I have 166 acres of mineral rights in the inside corners of 17 18 19 and 20 t158 r98 with one producing well Bruce.... looks like there's room for growth.... thank you

    1. You are so correct. It might take a bit longer than some of the areas in the Bakken, but once they start, they move along very, quickly. Best example: the very non-descript, but very, very busy CLR field north of Williston, the Brooklyn oil field, which, for me, really, really surprised me.
