HELENA, Mont., Oct. 14, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- As part of its initial quarterly communication, management of BAKKEN RESOURCES, INC. (OTCBB:BKKN) (BRI or the "Company") is pleased to share the following synopsis of significant corporate activity that occurred during the recently ended third quarter of 2011.
BRI continues to experience successful activity in North Dakota's Williston Basin (commonly known as the Bakken region). The Company holds an acreage position in approximately 3,000 net acres in McKenzie County, North Dakota. As of September 30, 2011, public records disclosed by the North Dakota Industrial Commission (NDIC) show that the Company currently has ten wells in various states of operation on property which the Company has a mineral interest. Four wells are currently listed in "Producing" status, two of which are in the Bakken zone and the other two in the Madison zone. In addition, four more wells are listed in "Confidential" status. (A well that is listed in "Confidential" status is a well that was drilled and is likely producing, but the well operator (e.g. Continental Resources, Oasis Petroleum or Brigham Exploration) has not as yet released production information.)
For the quarter ended September 30, 2011, the Company has received royalty checks from certain wells, in production, in the aggregate amount of $76,751.
A full listing of BRI's Williston Basin wells can be found on the Company website, www.bakkenresourcesinc.com. Such listing also contains the NDIC number for each listed well, allowing the user to obtain additional well information from the NDIC site (www.dmr.nd.gov/oilgas – note that some information requires a paid subscription).
BRI continues to add mineral acreage to its asset base. A recent press release announced the acquisition of mineral rights on approximately 1,100 acres around the Duck Lake region in Montana, an area generally referred to as the Alberta Bakken.
The Company continues to seek opportunities that are complementary to its core business. Management expects that its efforts to help ensure the creation of an orderly trading market continues into the current quarter. In addition to providing quarterly updates, management intends to always inform BRI's shareholders and the investment community of corporate developments as they occur.
