"Recent production results from 103 newly tapped wells in the Three Forks-Sanish formation show many that are "as good or better" than some in the Bakken, which lies two miles under the surface in western North Dakota and holds billions of barrels of oil."
Currently, a study is being conducted to determine whether it's a unique reservoir and if it is, according to Helms, "it could literally double the potential we have--a Bakken 2, if you will."
