Bakken Shale Formation

The region of Northwest US referred to as the Bakken Shale Formation was originally owned by Henry O. Bakken, a farmer from Williston, North Dakota. Oil was discovered there in the early 1950's but it was not possible to capitalize on the discovery because of the mining technology available at the time.

However in recent years, more advanced technologies such as horizontal drilling and hydraulic fracturing have made it possible to tap in to this huge energy reserve.
