Energy News:

UnionTown Energy (UTOG) and other oil and gas companies targeting the shale fields in Williston Basin could benefit from a new government study. Sen. John Hoeven wants the U.S. Geological Survey (USG) to take another look at the Williston Basin to reevaluate the size of the recoverable oil reserve. According to Hoeven, a new assessment would bring more investment into the North Dakota oil sector.

The USGS has estimated up to 4.3 billion barrels of oil can be recovered from the Bakken in North Dakota and Montana by using current technology, but there is a strong feeling in the oil patch that the recoverable reserves are substantially greater that what has been shown by the USGS.

On Friday, UnionTown announced the completion of its previously reported acquisition of the New Miami oil and gas property in northwest Montana. Two days, earlier, the company closed its acquisition of the Musselshell property in central Montana.

Oil and gas companies are moving quickly to acquire and explore shale oil and gas properties across the United States.

Both New Miami and Musselshell were previously explored using vertical well holes and are believed to be good candidates for further exploration using new horizontal drilling technology combined with hydraulic fracturing.

The estimated recoverable oil reserve in the two properties is 12.8 million barrels.

UnionTown says the acquisitions have substantially increased the company's value and given it leverage to pursue future acquisitions.
