According to BMO capital Markets, "While the play is still emerging, the Alberta Bakken appears to be developing into a potential new unconventional tight oil resource play"
GREAT FALLS, Mont.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Eco-Trade Corp. (OTCQB: BOPT), an independent oil and gas exploration Company, today comments with reports that its neighbors in general vicinity include Rosetta Resources, Primary Petroleum, Stone Energy and FX Energy, Inc.
The advent of the Alberta Bakken Fairway creates another opportunity for Bakken production outside of the boundaries of the Williston Basin. The Bakken Fairway was first discovered and drilled in Alberta, Canada, but now extends deep into northwest Montana into Lewis & Clark County where it is bordered by the Rocky Mountain Thrust Zone on the west and the Sweetgrass Arch to the west.
Major oil companies have now made the early move into the Bakken Fairway of northwest Montana and activity is accelerating rapidly. Rosetta Resources (NAS: ROSE) , Newfield, and Primary Petroleum (PIE.V) are the largest and most active to date. Other companies in the general vicinity include Stone Energy (NYSE:SGY ), Anschutz Exploration Corp., Quicksilver Resources Inc. NYSE: KWK, Fairways Offshore Exploration Inc., Arkanova Energy Corp. (AKVA:OTC US), FX Energy, Inc. (NAS: FXEN) and American Eagle Energy Inc. (AMZG: OTCBB).
Rosetta reportedly has a new discovery well with an IP of 450 BOPD north of the prospect area, and Primary Petroleum completed a Bakken well just west of the prospect area. Rosetta's initial discovery well in 2009, the Gunsight 31-16V, found oil saturation in the Lodgepole, Bakken, Three Forks and Nisku. To date, Rosetta has drilled 6 exploratory wells and confirms "significant oil hydrocarbons in place, 13-15 MMBOE per section, and over-pressured reservoirs."
According to BMO capital Markets, "While the play is still emerging, the Alberta Bakken appears to be developing into a potential new unconventional tight oil resource play."
A company spokesperson noted, "Given our location to strong and insulated markets situated in areas of pro-industry regulation and minimal environmental opposition, we have developed assets that have the potential of being very valuable to our shareholders. There are numerous competing pipeline companies and end-users providing us with an active market for our petroleum products in an industry that continues to grow to meet worldwide demand."
