25 Earthquakes occur deep within earth’s crust & upper mantel along plate tectonic boundaries. Origin of earthquakes is approximately 500 miles deep. Fracking in the Bakken approximately 2 miles deep.

26 Currently, only 3%– 10% recovery factor. Small improvements in recovery could yield over a billion barrels of oil. Can CO 2 be a game changer in the Bakken?
