The ways that Americans produce, distribute, use, and think about energy are more important to our nation’s future than ever before. But despite rapidly evolving financial, national security, and environmental realities – and significant advances in science and technology – our nation’s energy policies are not evolving adequately to meet the challenges of our changing world.

Has the Bakken Peaked? Exhaustion of High-quality Drilling Sites Could Point to Falling Oil Output - OurEnergyPolicy

The Bakken’s substantial production decline and the slow recovery of drilling despite rising oil prices raise a critical question: Will Bakken crude #oil output ever recover to its previous highs? Via Institute for Energy Economics and Financial Analysis (IEEFA).
