NOT coal Bed Methane .. Shallow Natural gas wells. 15 miles South of Marmarth and into Eastern MT the Cedar Creek Anticline juts the Ground up, erosion of the little Missouri river flowage over 1000's of years has put the NG formation only 1500-2000 ft down. if you use google maps , look up marmarth and then go south . magi=nify and you can see these wells.. this area was the orginal NG drilling area for Fidelity exp. in the 1930's.. still all kinds of cheap NG in that area..
These permits i believe were issued 2-3 yrs ago and NG got so cheap , MDU just quit drilling NG for awhile. When you find the wells out near the Bagley River Crossing, just head NW and 40 miles later you are in Baker, mt.
The surface formation is the Pieere shale..don
