A year ago, we argued that the Bakken oil play would not peak by 2017, as some were predicting. In July, evidence came in that we were right when the USGS upped its reserve estimates. Now it looks like initial daily production for Bakken wells is increasing: e.g., new finds are more productive than older ones.
