Richard L. "Dick" Findley
Chairman and Director
Mr. Findley has been credited with discovering the Bakken Formation in the Elm Coulee Field, which is one of the largest oil fields in terms of proved liquid reserves within the United States and the analogy for the Bakken Play in Montana, North Dakota and Canada. The United States Geological Survey initially estimated that the Elm Coulee Field contained between 3.0 and 4.3 Billion barrels of recoverable oil in the Bakken Formation within the United States' portion of the field. As a result of subsequent drilling success, numerous sources have estimated that the total volume of recoverable oil from this formation / location could be as much as 24.0 Billion barrels. Mr. Findley is actively involved in the geological research and planning associated with the Company's drilling activities.
