The US Geological Survey will study booming oil fields near Williston next year to see how much oil and gas are produced. The federal agency will look at the Bakken and Three Forks formations to estimate undiscovered resources. It did not look at the latter in 2008. That study estimated North Dakota and Montana had up to 4 point 3 billion barrels of recoverable oil in the Bakken. Officials believe that's low.
