The rumor mill makes it difficult to know what is happening on the groynd out here in North Dakota.
Rumor 1: The boom is going to last —- years! Some people say 1 year, some people say 50. I saw a t-shirt the other day that said ” Lord, let this boom last a kittle longer and I promise not to piss my money away this time.”
My opinion: The boom is directly tird to the price of oil and thus to the world economy. While there is enough oil to last decades, there is no predicting the demand for oil. If you could do that you’d be working in a corner officr on Walll Street instead of risking your dumb neck on a rig.
Rumor 2: The boom is moving North/South/East/West/To the planet Jupiter.
My opinion: It is difficult to say. They are expanding exploration in Eastern Montana. Supposedly Sydney,MT will be the next boom town. I can’t say for sure what direction things are going. What I can say is that for the time being Williston ,ND is the epicenter of the boom. If You want work, this is the place to be.
