These Bakken From Space video screen grabs are getting a lot of attention around the interwebs and around the world.  They've been picked up by the "Daily Mail" newspaper's website in the U.K., Indian Country Today's Media Network and by a website called "Midwest Energy News."  A commenter under the Midwest Energy News story -- a "Frank Reed" -- pointed out that the Bakken shows up a couple other times in the video, and that one of them is better than the one everybody's looking at.  Reed also pointed it out on the MPR story page comments, the first place I saw the Bakken photos.  I agree with him and thought I'd post a couple screen grabs from those views.  Here they are...


This one (above) gives you a view of the Fort Peck reservoir in Montana in relation to the Bakken and Lake Sakakawea, etc.  


This one (above) gives a slightly different view, a short moment after the previous one. In this one you can see Lake Sakakawea a little bit better, just below Highway 83 between Minot and Bismarck, and maybe Chicago (up at the top).

Here's a link to the Vimeo page where you can watch the high def version of the video.   It's pretty compelling to see the Bakken roll by at the :34 second mark, the 2:51 mark and at the 4:08 mark (on the far left) on the video.  

The pictures are pretty amazing.

I just read that Pennsylvania is projecting development of 100,000 natural gas wells to tap the Marcellus Shale. How many oil wells and gas wells are we looking at in ND if we continue at the current rate of development?
