GeoResources controls thirty-eight 1,280-acre Bakken units on 49,000 net leasehold acres in Williams County and is project operator having retained 47.5% working interest. The company material working interests in another forty-nine 1,280-acre units.

The company, working with two industry partners, plans to spud at least three horizontal Middle Bakken wells in September 2010. Secondary objectives include the Three Forks, Madison, and Red River formations.
