... development area in the United States and has been the development ground for the shale "playbook" for many operators. This has led to a wide variation in the ways wells in the Bakken are developed as an increasing number of wells were drilled as infill drilling in the core areas. Figure 2 depicts the above...

... areas, few wells have been drilled over the past 3 or more years. Due to the increased completion costs associated with wells using RCS techniques, operators employed limited RCS trials to a handful of wells or less. This point is very important; key economic decisions are often made on the basis...
