Modern Day Gold Rush – Bakken Shale
The modern day entrepreneur has undoubtedly considered the gold rush of the 1800′s, and dreamt about the possibilities that a modern day gold rush would bring. In today’s world, opportunities come up frequently, albeit with varying levels of success rates, however, those keen on the oil and gas industry can partake in the true gold rush of the modern age.
Wherever oil is discovered, flocks of pioneers and entrepreneurs alike rush to the scene to discover their potential for return. The Bakken Shale is perhaps the most important oil discovery of the passed one hundred years.
Many are well aware that there has been a plethora of oil in the Bakken Shale for over 60 years, but only recently have the horizontal drilling and fracting techniques evolved to the point where these oil reserves are now within reach.
It’s easy to see that oil & gas investing is here to stay, with the best oil and gas returns yet to be seen.
