The Bakken Shale has been producing about 20 million barrels per day in the U.S. since 2011.
It’s the biggest single source of oil in the United States, and the nation’s second-largest oil field after the Bakken, but it’s also home to one of the world’s worst environmental problems.
The region’s oil and gas industry has been struggling with overproduction and a glut of supplies from the shale formation.
More than 1.5 million acres of land in North Dakota, South Dakota and Montana has been designated as federal public lands under the federal Outer Continental Shelf Lands Act of 1976, which is one of many environmental regulations designed to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and reduce climate change.

Dennis Daugaard, who is seeking the Republican presidential nomination, has called on the federal government to take control of federal lands and help address climate change, which has been blamed for exacerbating the region’s water shortages.
The Bakken is a relatively new shale formation, developed by oil companies in North America, that forms in the Baktuches of northeastern North Dakota.
It is the second-biggest oil field in the world and has produced about 20.4 million barrels of oil per day, more than any other source in the country.
The Bakkys shale formation was first discovered in 1976.
The first one was discovered in 1960, but only about 40 percent of the Bakkies oil is known, and oil and natural gas extraction has not been used for decades.
It is believed that most of the oil in North American shale formations has been released into the atmosphere, but some is released as water is released during hydraulic fracturing, or fracking.
Oil producers have been fighting the government’s attempts to manage the region and have lobbied to have federal agencies, such as the Bureau for Land Management, take over the oil and mineral leases on land that is currently held by state and local governments.
Federal land, which was established in 1906 as part of the U,S.
Constitution, has been held in trust for the federal public for centuries.
The federal government has no legal authority to administer public lands or to manage their natural resources.
Environmental groups say that federal land management has failed to protect the environment and that the Bakkens oil and oil shale have contributed to a crisis that has devastated communities in the region.
“The Bakkars oil and their associated gas wells have contributed significantly to the ongoing drought in South Dakota, exacerbated by a drought that has exacerbated the effects of climate change,” said Matt Besser, the president of the American Petroleum Institute, a group that opposes the Bakks shale.
Besser told the Associated Press that the area’s oil production has declined by almost 70 percent since 2011, and that he thinks the oil rig explosion is an indication of what is to come.
