      Two of the total petroleum systems (TPS) defined as part of the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) assessment of the Williston Basin contain Mississippian Madison Group strata: 1) the Bakken-Lodgepole TPS, which includes the Lodgepole Formation; and 2) the Madison TPS, which includes the Mission Canyon, Charles, and Spearfish formations. The Bakken-Lodgepole TPS is defined as the . Year Published: Characterization and origin of brines from the Bakken-Three Forks petroleum system in the Williston Basin, USA. Brine (also referred to as ‘produced water’) samples were collected from 28 wells producing oil from the Late Devonian-Early Mississippian Bakken and Three Forks Formations in the Williston Basin of eastern Montana and western North Dakota.

      The Nesson anticline is the major north-south-trending structure in the North Dakota portion of the Williston basin. The trace of the anticline is marked by nearly continuous production for mi ( km) from the Canadian border south to Dunn County; production is from 13 different stratigraphic zones. GEOLOGY OF THE WILLISTON BASIN, NORTH DAKOTA, MONTANA, AND SOUTH DAKOTA, WITH REFERENCE TO RESURFACE DISPOSAL OF RADIOACTIVE^WASTES By Charles A. Sandberg ABSTRACT The southern Will1ston basin, which underlies about , square miles in North Dakota, South Dakota, and eastern Montana, is part of a large structural and sedimentary basin.

        It's a sedimentary basin that stretches about , square miles across North Dakota, South Dakota, Montana, Saskatchewan, and parts of Manitoba. The basin also happens to be home to the Bakken shale. As you know, the latest USGS assessment has stated the Bakken formation holds up to billion barrels of technically recoverable oil. Spearfish Formation in the Williston Basin has recently been touted as “another Bakken Oil Boom for North Dakota”. The senior author, totally uninformed about the subsurface geology of North Dakota, was requested by INFOCAST* to discuss petroleum potential in the Spearfish based on his field experience in the outcrop.

Dow, edition, in EnglishPages:   The Williston Basin is a large intracratonic sedimentary basin in eastern Montana, western North Dakota, South Dakota, and southern Saskatchewan, that is known for its rich deposits of petroleum and basin is a geologic structural basin but not a topographic depression; it is transected by the Missouri oval-shaped depression extends approximately miles ( km) north.

The Triassic Spearfish Formation of North Dakota is equivalent to the Lower Watrous in Saskatchewan and the Lower Amaranth in Manitoba. In the study area, the Spearfish Formation onlaps the unconformity surface of the Mississippian Madison Group.

The Spearfish oil play is both geologically and hydrogeologically complex. The play extends from a stratigraphic and structural trap at Newburg. North Dakota lies on top of a large geologic feature of North America called the Williston Basin.
