    Reading reports is convincing but seeing is even better!

    We "foursome" just returned from Williston last night and it was quite a trip.

    We were impressed with the neatness of the Kodiak well sites compared to some others in the area, and were especially gratified with some of the comments made about KOG running a "1st Class Operation" by others.

    The new roads, buildings, just everything speaks loudly to the future plans for the area continuing unabated.

    The huge railroad and NG infrastructure build-outs were particularly impressive.

    Bottom line: The big money crowd will want into this stash of huge wealth, and I am confident that they will get it by trying to convince the present owners (us) into selling it for whatever reasons that they can conjure up.

    More later................

    • The shorts are having a day--again. Despite the numbers, and despite analyst upward projections, shorts are pressuring us and advancing handily.

    • Thank you looking at their website you can see they are first class operation! I would love to see it live good work guys just bought some more today!

      Sentiment: Strong Buy

    • Appreciate the report ~ Oil is obviously a dirty smelly business and its nice to hear that KOG is keeping it clean and professional ~ Lynn is obviously running a tight first class operation and that in itself attracts "eyes" ~ I like the infrastructure build out as you touched on and would like to hear more about your visit too ~ Reports of jobs being plentiful, rents being sky high or even unavailable, and a booming economy speaks volumes as to what is transpiring there in the ND oil patch ~ I'm glad KOG is part of it and that we're all part of the KOG story ~ I hope we all (LONGS!!!) make a small fortune!!!! ~ GLTA!

    • How much did a motel cost you there? That has my curiosity peaked as I owned a motel fro over 20 years.

      • It was easy getting a room and the price ranged from $119- (plus tax) to $150- for one room with double occupancy which includes a couple drink tickets and breakfasts. The cost in Fargo is roughly half of that.

        Gas was around $3.25 and we had two large pizza's and unlimited Pepsi for about $30- or $7.50 each.

        I think they're winding down for winter as traffic did not seem at that busy.

        One has to wonder how all of the buildings that have been added since 2008 got built, and the roads, and the railroad tracks and the absolutely huge NG processing plant with all of the welding, pipes and wires all got put together.

        It's one thing to build something with experienced workers with readily available materials, but to build it with people from all over the country with materials that had to all be shipped in on roads and rails that were built to handle about 1% of what it was going to be used for.
        It was (is) a crash program for sure and is a testament to the free enterprise system all the while PAYING TAXES INTO THE GOVERNMENT versus a government project sucking money out of the government and then not working in the end.

        Honestly I don't know how this kind of comparison can escape the notice of our "higher educational" system but it sure does. In fact it's ridiculed in favor of "shared responsibilities" and "shared outcomes" (socialism).

        For us, it was a refresher that this country still has the right stuff to do great things IF THE NIMRODS ON THE TWO LEFT COASTS JUST GET OUT OF THE WAY!

    • Thanks for that report of your on site visit; We have heard much and seen some on TV but I personally have not been to Williston. Those on the scene get the best info. You can learn so much at a bar at night, enough to get more info than any Wall Street blogger can ever get. I have been in the OK oilfields and can tell you that the landowners and leaseholders in Town can tell you more in 2 minutes than studying any Stock Charts for 24 hours.

      Anything else you can share is appreciated!

      Thanks again

    • Can you post some photos on Flcker or somewhere?

      Sentiment: Buy
