North Dakota’s Bakken Shale is providing a wealth of new oil production
to the U.S., along with bountiful economic activity. The Bakken could be
producing as much as a million barrels per day by 2020, and extraction of
this oil is benefiting the region and the country through the creation of
thousands of jobs and the generation of substantial revenues from taxes and
royalties. The infographic below illustrates the oil-producing potential of
the Bakken, the robust activity in the region, and the economic benefits
that flow from its development.
