This page makes the Bakken Formation seem like a really big deal. It would be if we could just pump the crude oil out with a big metal straw, but it's not quite so easy. From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bakken_Formation

"While these numbers would appear to indicate a massive reserve, the percentage of this oil which might be extracted using current technology is another matter. Estimates of the Bakken's technically recoverable oil have ranged from as low as 1% — due to the fact that the Bakken shale has low porosity, making the oil difficult to extract — to Leigh Price's estimate of 50% recoverable.[8] Reports issued by both the USGS and the state of North Dakota in April 2008 seem to indicate the lower range of recoverable estimates are more realistic with current technology."
