Bakken Trip #3
I guess it's cold out there. But the weather report seems worse than it feels, if that makes sense. I was surprised to see how "warm" it was today, up to 22 degrees. This is not to "take away" from what the men and women in the field are experiencing, especially the folks on the rigs, but for most of us in-town folks, it was an incredibly nice day. No wind makes a big difference. It is interesting how "relative" things are. Coming from one degree earlier to 22 degrees during the day, that 22 degrees felt good.
I spent the day checking on wells in the Stockyard Creek area; I hope to post some photos later. Nothing out of the ordinary. Most "enjoyable" was seeing the Statoil Pyramid pad northwest of Williston; it's quite a pad. Surrounded by green mesh link fence, and that surrounded by young "evergreen" trees that will someday completely hide the pad. When I get a good wi-fi connection, I will post video, photos. If one stays in downtown Williston, or on the east side of Williston, one would hardly know there's a huge oil and gas industry enveloping the area.
