The oil boom in North Dakota means that there are some places where oil wells crowd each other in the zest to drain the Bakken Oil Formation of its oil as quickly as possible (which, most likely will be many years from now). Even if there is plenty of oil, it is a bit disconcerting when you see so many wells crowded together like they are in this silhouette.
