North Dakota Oil Boom. I mean BOOOOM.

The Complex Quagmirey Predicament In T145N, R96W, Dunn Co.

The chickens have come home to roost, oil and water don't mix, too many cooks spoil the broth, you can't unscramble an egg. Yeah okay. Anyway. . .

A complex quagmire has become apparent in T145-R96 after 1280 acre spacing and drilling units were created from different directions and fields. And what happens when you get to the middle and want to join everything up . . . . well, maybe a few orphaned sections that won't fit into the prevailing spacing pattern.

The NDIC says enough of this nonsense and has put a 90 day stop to the madness while everything (apparently) is sorted out.
