Oil Rig Counts tumble since 2006

Think - Think  - Think -  What happened at the start of 2006 to start this trend?

New Election = New group hopefully = new actions. 


For those candidates that won by 2 to 1 margins this last tuesday the elections isn't really over.  You were elected by large margins to be a conservative and sane voice in Helena

NOW BE ONE!  We all have our eye on you


  1. It is not hard to figure out the why?

    ND taxes those rigs way less than MT so those companies can actually afford to drill in ND

    I hope these newly elected people do something about the equipment tax. How stupid is it to set by unemployed and watch neighboring states hard at work because of something that can be easily fixed like this?

  2. I hope something can be fixed and soon! Many, MANY Montana families rely on drilling. People say goodbye to their spouses every day in Havre for weeks at a time so they can work in Wyoming and North Dakota.

  3. they are currently drilling on the rez @ browning for the bakken formation and are having good success, being they are "sovereign" there is some tax breaks, the bakken is known to be in many areas across the northern tier of mt but will be only tryed in better economics times and access to pipelines are there

  4. I would love to see some drilling in Hill county. I worked in ND drilling. The money to be made is unreal. The part I liked best was being able to pay my bills at the end of the month and have money left over.
