Reading comments from The Outsider Club e-mails regarding the substantial decline of gas and oil wells in the Bakken and other shale plays around the country. The comment was made that the wells are declining at a rate of 40% or more in the first year, making drilling costs prohibitive so that many of the companies are losing money on each well drilled, and the claimed energy independence statements are false. Anyone have any input?
