Oil and Gas leasing near Miles City

Came across an article in the NYT the other day on how the Trump administration is opening up so much federal land for oil and gas development, supply is exceeding demand and some speculators are getting some pretty good deals:

I was scrolling down the online NYT and had a start when I saw the lead picture for the article...I thought, that looks just like Fort Keough before I clicked on the article and saw one of the areas covered is Custer County.



What I found interesting is that the London-based speculator thinks that the oil reserves in the Pine Hills also contains economically viable quantities of helium. First I ever heard of that.

Thanks for the heads up, Gunnar. Dad often said Ralph Nybo was full of hot air. One of the parcels is under his old house.

Did Ralph sound like a chipmunk when he talked?

LMAO! Great Post. We could just vent a cloud around Miles City, then everyone would be too hysterical to be condescending. Is that a good plan?
