      Eric,

      You may find the data below to be of interest.  Realize that about 90% of Bakken oil production in North Dakota comes from the 4 counties below.  That is because that is where the oil is.  Most of the counties in the Bakken region outside of those 4 have average initial production/well of less than 100 b/d whereas it's typical for wells in the 4 counties below to have initial production >1000 b/d.

       

      County.................Area (miles squared)..................# Well (Approximate)

      Mountrail.................1941............................................1850

      McKenzie................2861............................................2300

      Williams.................2148............................................1600

      Dunn......................2082............................................1300

       

      McKenzie is the hot county for drilling right now.  So far this year 38.4% of all wells drilled in the Bakken region of N.D. were drilling in McKenzie Co.  83.8% of all wells so far this year have been drilled in the 4 counties above.  Mountrail and McKenzie will soon be at 1 mile square/well.
