Default Any drilling planned for Devils Lake???

I was wondering if any drilling is being planned for the Devils Lake area of ND (east of Minot).
I have some relatives who would rent me a furnished room in their big ranch house right on the edge of town.
I wouldn't hafta scramble for housing nor would I be a stranger in town.
I'd be halfway set up when I got there.
Anybody know if they're going that way??

I live in the Grand Forks area... but nope nothing that way.... eastern edge of any oil is about Bottineau to just west of Minot the south toward Dickinson. Devils Lake has great fishing....but alas no oil.

Thats a bummer.
I've spent many a visit in Devils Lake with my relatives there.
Yes, the lake is great.
Enjoyed Ft. Totten, etc.
Would be great if there was oil there.
I'd have a really nice place to stay from the start.
I don't relish sleeping in my car, a tent, or one of
those 'mancamps' ... especially in winter.

I wouldn't get too depressed cometclear, it will probably be one of only a couple that will drill to test. They have barely hit anything in Ward county, let alone that far southeast of the Bakken.

Your client is wrong. NDIC site shows nothing there. There is one rig in Bottineau county that did surprise me though. Legacy oil and gas is the operator.

Keep your eyes open. They are in the area of Harvey too.

I'm not sure, but was told this is pretty accurate. http://www.eser.org/

A side note, isn't it interesting that there is NOTHING in South Dakota?
