The Bakken Formation is one of the largest unconventional resources in the world, with approximately 3.65 billion barrels of recoverable oil (Gaswirth et al., 2013). Primary recovery ranges from 3% to 10%, and the potential exists to recover greater amounts of oil upon further understanding of this petroleum system. Multimineral petrophysical analysis (MMP A) and fracture analysis were undertaken to properly integrate lithofacies, petrofacies, and natural fracture to characterize and compare thermally immature and mature fields producing from the Bakken petroleum system.
