Oilfields are spinning off thousands of tons of low-level radioactive trash as the U. drilling boom leads to a surge in illegal dumping and states debate how much landfills can safely take.

The Bakken formation -- straddling Sas-katchewan Manitoba North Dakota and Montana  endures as one of the most attractive light oil plays in North America. Recently the discovery of another even more prolific oil zone below the Bakken could prove to be another multi-billion-barrel horizon for both the Canadian and American oil industries.

For those that don't understand geology of How Oil and Gas was made. Here it is - Picture worth thousand words......:)

Funny pictures about And that's how we get oil and natural gas. Oh, and cool pics about And that's how we get oil and natural gas. Also, And that's how we get oil and natural gas.

WATFORD CITY, ND - JULY 28: Ray Gerish, a floor hand for Raven Drilling, works on an oil rig drilling into the Bakken shale formation on July 28, 2013 outside Watford City, North Dakota. North Dakota has been experiencing an oil boom in recent years, due in part to new drilling techniques including hydraulic fracturing and horizontal drilling. In April 2013, The United States Geological Survey released a new study estimating the Bakken formation and surrounding oil fields could yield up to…
