However, there is a basin to the west of the Bakken that garners a lot less media attention, even though there is also a tremendous amount of potential. The Alberta Basin, which stretches across the border between northern Montana and southern Alberta, shares a lot of similarities to the North Dakota Bakken, located in the Williston Basin. Due to these similar features, the Alberta Basin has been dubbed the “Alberta Bakken.”

The Alberta Bakken could hold 2 to 3 billion barrels of light to medium, recoverable oil. It has good porosity and permeability, and is thought to be “less tight” than other tight oils.
