http://www.instituteforenergyresearch... / http://www.heritage.org | The recent boom of the Bakken oil fields—made possible by a perfect storm of sensible state regulations, hydraulic fracturing technology, and the fact that most drilling is taking place on private lands—has produced a whirlwind of economic growth in a formerly sleepy corner of northwest North Dakota. Recently, a team from The Heritage Foundation and the Institute for Energy Research (IER) traveled out West to see it for ourselves.
Special recognition and thanks to Brandon Stewart, the Heritage Foundation, for his instrumental role in directing and producing this film.
