That's how much money is sitting beneath a 200,000 square-mile area in the American Midwest right now, with crude oil prices trading for $101.13 per barrel this week.
The United States government has done everything in its power to hide the true amount of oil in this field, perhaps one of the largest of its kind in modern history.
Fortunately, they couldn't hold back the investment tide for long — even admitting to the public in April of this year that the field holds twice as much crude as previously disclosed.
You see, the market has been waiting 62 years for someone to finally extract these barrels. Because there's always been one slight complication: Practically every drop of oil there was beyond the reach of even the best oil companies. So they abandoned the area in search for the cheaper stuff.
But now the past has come back to haunt them as a massive upsurge of investment money is flooding into this tiny corner of the the United States...
I'm talking about billions, possibly trillions, of dollars pouring in from all over the world over the next thirty years.
I've discussed before that this ONE SINGLE OIL FORMATION is responsible for nearly 30% of the United States' domestic oil production growth over the past six years...
As it happens, I've uncovered three stocks neck-deep in this oil patch. These companies represent the three best chances for both veteran and rookie investors alike to finally hang that elusive ten-bagger on their portfolio wall.
Each is trading for under $10 a share. But I don't expect them to stay that cheap for long — especially once Wall Street jumps into this pool with both feet.
I strongly urge you to take a few minutes to watch my investment presentation, which tells you exactly how to take advantage of the billions of barrels tucked away in the Midwest — before it's too late for individual investors like us to get a piece of this action.

One $6 stock will see a 293% INCREASE in net profit this year...
The oil-bearing shale rock of the Bakken holds a powerful secret. A secret that's creating as many as 2,000 millionaires a year...
Warren Buffett knows this secret. That's why he paid $26.5 billion to participate in America's fastest-growing oil play.
Billionaire investor Bill Ackman, founder of the Pershing Square hedge fund, knows it, too. He followed Buffett with a multi-billion-dollar investment of his own.
Other billion-dollar hedge funds like Citadel Investment Group and Moore Global Investments are increasing their investments as fast as they can...
And individual investors who know this secret can profit right alongside some of America's savviest investors.
I'll share this secret with you today, in just a minute. And I'll also show you how you can make up to a 220% profit on a $6 stock.
“...the oil rush could be creating up to 2,000 millionaires a year in North Dakota.” — Bruce Gjovig of the Center of Innovation at the University of North Dakota
Hello, my name is Keith Kohl. I’m the editor of the oil and gas investment newsletter Energy Investor.
Six years ago, I alerted my readers to two small oil stocks that were drilling in North Dakota's Bakken oil field.
At the time, these stocks traded for less than $6 and $8 a share. Back then, nobody had heard of the Bakken — and they definitely hadn't heard of the two stocks I recommended...
They were Brigham Exploration and Northern Oil & Gas.
In October 2011, Brigham announced it was being acquired for over $36 a share by Norway's state-run oil company, Statoil.
Many of my readers who purchased Brigham back in 2008 have sold over +600% gains in just three years...
And Northern Oil & Gas has been as high as $32.55.
I’m happy to say these two stocks have changed the lives of many of the readers who followed my advice...
Like member Mike Leonard, who wrote in to say:
Or Kim, who told me...
And Mr. Smith had this to share:
Here’s my favorite, from long-time subscriber Cheryl Burton:
Martin L. nearly tripled his investment...
George made some quick cash:
And Henry made over 1,200% on Brigham:
These days, with a struggling economy and high unemployment, letters like these are what make me get up in the morning and go to work.
I spend endless hours poring over companies’ field production reports, lease acquisitions, landholdings, SEC filings, and CEO interviews...
I’ve been to the Bakken and Fort McMurray to get a firsthand look at the operations of some of my favorite oil and gas stocks...
And all this hard work is about to pay off for you again.
I have three more unknown stocks in the Bakken that I believe will give you EVEN BIGGER returns than Brigham or Northern Oil & Gas...
My favorite Bakken stock trades for just $6 a share.
It has a total of 86,000 prime acres in the Bakken... and just a couple months ago, one insider bought over 9 million shares of this company's stock.
There's only one reason an insider would make a $55 million commitment like this: They know the share price is headed higher.
What makes this insider so sure?
This small-cap oil company has a current market valuation of just $300 million, but it has $428 million in cash and other assets. And that's just for starters...
In the last year, this company's proved reserves have jumped a whopping 890%... to over 14 million barrels of oil. And revenues ramped up 646% — to $60 million.
And it gets better. Because this year, revenues will be up another 201%. Think about that for a minute...
As this company drills its wells, it's grown revenues from $8 million... to $60 million last year... to what will be $180 million this year.
And next year, revenues are expected to hit $265 million.
There's only one place you can find growth — and profits — like this: the Bakken.
There's just no way this stock can stay this cheap for long. I'm convinced this will be at least a $19 stock in the next few months. That's a 220% gain!
You wanna make some easy loot in this crazy market? Then buy undervalued Bakken oil stocks. It's as simple as that.
175% from This Buyout
My second blockbuster Bakken stock trades for just $8 a share. I think it will be bought out at a price between $19 and $24 pretty much any day now...
This company controls over 218,000 acres in the Bakken that hold 95 million barrels of oil.
Net income skyrocketed 4,266% last year — and will jump 50% this year... and another 50% next year!
It gets better: In the last couple months, they completed 15 new wells, and they have 7 rigs drilling 24 hours a day.
It's one of the fastest drilling programs ever. That's why revenues are growing so fast.
I have no doubt that sales and net profit will rise in the coming quarters.
Not only that, but company insiders have already approved new compensation rules that will pay them handsomely if (or rather, when) the buyout comes...
This $8 stock is the most attractive takeover target in the Bakken. Your gains could be 118% to 175%!
My third Bakken stock — at just $0.40 a share — has the most explosive upside potential. It has 10,000 prime Bakken acres. That may not sound like much, but remember... this is a 40-cent stock!
By the end of 2013, it will be pumping nearly $3 million of oil every week.
This a rare opportunity to get into a Bakken oil company at the ground floor — before huge jumps in production pushes the stock price higher, like we've seen so many times before...
And because it's brand new to the Bakken, there's no telling how high the stock can go: $3...$5...$10...
In just a minute, I’ll show you how to make your fortune on these Bakken stocks. But first, you need to know why the Bakken itself is a game-changer for America...
After all, there's a very good reason that some of America's wealthiest investors — including Warren Buffett himself — are invested in these plays...
Profit Secrets of the Bakken
"The Largest Continuous Oil Formation It Has Ever Assessed" — U.S. Geological Survey
The greatest investments in history always have one thing in common...
They have important catalysts that the majority of investors don 't know about — or don't understand.
I call these "profit secrets."
Most investors had never heard of the Bakken when I started recommending Bakken stocks.
But even now, the Bakken still has a few profit tricks up its sleeve...
In 2008, the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) completed its estimate of recoverable light, sweet crude reserves in North Dakota's Bakken Formation, located in the Williston Basin.
That USGS estimate — 4.3 billion barrels — ignited the Bakken oil stocks and led to a flurry of gains for my readers...
I’m not kidding when I say billions of dollars were made on the heels of that USGS Survey.
And the profits aren’t done rolling in — not by a long shot.
In 2010, a new oil reserve was identified that actually lies beneath what’s known as the Bakken.
This area, called the Three Forks or Sanish Formation, holds an additional 1.9 billion barrels of recoverable oil — maybe more...
Literally overnight, recoverable reserves jumped 50%.
We were looking at a whopping 6.2 billion barrels of recoverable oil.
It’s true — North America's fastest-growing oil play keeps getting bigger.
But as I'll show you, the first Profit Secret of the Bakken is that it holds far more oil than “official” estimates suggest...
Now, Bakken oil is light, sweet crude oil — every bit as good as Saudi Arabian oil. It's the most desirable quality because it's the cheapest and easiest to refine.
But here’s where things get really interesting — and more profitable — for you...
You see, the USGS just finished a new survey that boosts the estimated recoverable reserves of the Bakken/Three Forks to 7.4 billion barrels of oil.
Another 1.5 billion barrels of oil is nothing to sneeze at.
But the fact is the government is still wrong about the Bakken.
Top Bakken insiders say there is a lot more oil in the Bakken.
Insiders believe the true amount of recoverable light, sweet crude oil is much, much higher than 7.4 billion barrels.
So, Bakken Profit Secret #1 means that the gains on your Bakken investments should be even bigger than what I’m currently estimating!
Bakken Billions: 3 Bakken Stocks Under $10
for Triple-Digit Gains
for Triple-Digit Gains
Harold Hamm is the billionaire founder and CEO of Continental Resources (NYSE: CLR).
Hamm made a fortune by positioning his company in new and upcoming oil discoveries. Continental was among the first companies to enter the Anadarko, the Rocky Mountains, and the Bakken...
In fact, Continental drilled the first commercially successful Bakken oil well back in 2004.
Nobody knows more about the Bakken than Harold Hamm... after all, he's betting his company’s future on Bakken oil.
Hamm's amassed the biggest Bakken land position — 900,000 acres. Continental’s proven Bakken reserves stand at around 220 million barrels of oil. But that’s just the start...
Because Hamm is convinced there are 24 billion barrels of recoverable oil in the Bakken.
Yes, you read that right...
The most influential Bakken insider says there is four times more oil than the USGS can find.
This is incredibly profitable news for Bakken investors... because it means you can basically take every price target for Bakken oil companies — and double them.
"If [oil] prices increase or technology improves, the total amount of oil taken from the Bakken will go up... and that much oil means a century of steady oil production." — Lynn Helms, Director, North Dakota Dept. of Mineral Resources
That means the $6 Bakken stock I’ve been telling you about — the one with 220% gains coming — is likely to make much more money for you.
The stock could easily trade at $24.50 a share... or higher.
And you can start amassing a fortune-building position in this stock for just $6 a share.
Now is the time to start buying — when stock prices are low and most investors are focused on U.S. economic growth and the debt situation in Europe.
And I’ll get you started building your Bakken fortune with my latest Special Report, "Bakken Billions: 3 Bakken Stocks Under $10 for Triple-Digit Gains."
In this report, you’ll get my detailed analysis of exactly how this $6 stock will inevitably rise 220% (at least), and may go as high as $24.50 a share — handing investors a 308% gain!
This company is virtually unknown outside of oil circles, but insiders know that its 86,000 acres are among the very best Bakken land concentrated in the areas where the most productive wells have been drilled.
"Bakken is almost twice as big as the oil reserve in Prudhoe Bay, Alaska. " — Harold Hamm, founder & CEO, Continental Resources
That’s why institutional investors are flooding in...
BlackRock owns over 1.2 million shares. Franklin Templeton owns over 2 million shares.
These guys know what’s going to happen to this stock. They’re going to make their money — a lot of it.
And you have the opportunity to profit right along with some of the most savvy oil insiders in the world today.
But that’s not all...
When you get your copy of "Bakken Billions: 3 Bakken Stocks Under $10 for Triple-Digit Gains," you’ll also get the details on two other small Bakken players with HUGE profit potential.
(I’ve got an $8 stock that's set to reward you with up to 175% pure profit in the next 18 months that you’ll definitely want to hear about. And the 40-cent Bakken stock I mentioned may be the best performer of them all!)
I’ll even show you how you can get your hands on "Bakken Billions: 3 Bakken Stocks Under $10 for Triple-Digit Gains" absolutely FREE...
Bakken Oil Wells: World’s Most Profitable Oil Investment
Right now, a Bakken oil well is one of the world's most profitable investments — for individual investors and oil companies alike.
So let's dig into some numbers, because I want to show you exactly why this $6 stock is about to jump 220%...
North Dakota oil drillers produced a record 152.9 million barrels of crude in 2011, up more than 35% and nearly 40 million more barrels than the previous record set a year earlier.
More than 95% of the state's oil production comes from the Bakken and Three Forks.
Almost 200 rigs are drilling in the Bakken; state and industry officials say 99% of them hit oil.
A typical Bakken oil well costs between $8 and $10 million. That includes leases, royalties, and initial operating expenses.
The average Bakken well will produce about 540,000 barrels of oil during its 29-year lifespan.
At current prices between $85 and $100 per barrel, we’re talking about a sweet $45 million in revenue for each Bakken oil well.
"We can look at each well as a driver for the economy... It's also a good investment." — Alison Ritter, Department of Mineral Resources
Now, let’s put that in perspective:
The $6 Bakken stock I want you to buy has 86,000 acres of prime Bakken land.
It's got 3 rigs drilling 24 hours a day.
It has 14 million barrels of oil in the ground (though we know the real total is much higher)...
In a few months, it will be pumping 4,950 barrels per day.
At $90 a barrel, that's over $162 million in annual revenues.
Not bad. But this company is drilling for a lot more in revenues than that...
Conservative estimates are that this company's revenues — and earnings — which significantly jumped in 2012... will nearly double in 2013.
Revenues and profits are exploding to the upside.
There's simply nowhere else you can find this kind of fast, predictable growth...
And again, you can get it for just $6 a share.
Even more incredible: This stock is an amazing bargain. The forward price-to-earnings ratio for the next 12 months is just over 7!
There's simply no way this stock can stay at $6 a share for much longer...
That's why I urge you to get your copy of my latest Special Report, "Bakken Billions: 3 Bakken Stocks Under $10 for Triple-Digit Gains," as soon as possible. Because you'll be kicking yourself if you miss the run from $6 to $19.
And remember, with "Bakken Billions: 3 Bakken Stocks Under $10 for Triple-Digit Gains," you'll also get TWO MORE undiscovered Bakken oil stocks that could do even better than the $6 company I've told you about...
Build Your Own Bakken Oil Bank Account — for Just $8 a Share!
These days, oil in the ground is like money in the bank.
I mean, is there any doubt that oil prices will be higher in the future?
It's why Norway’s Statoil (NYSE: STO) bought top Bakken producer Brigham Exploration for $4.4 billion
why Warren Buffett bought the Burlington Northern Santa Fe railroad
(it transports millions of barrels of Bakken oil and has already made
Buffett $3 billion richer in the last year)...
why billionaire hedge-fund manager Bill Ackman bought into Canadian
Pacific railway, the only other rail company serving the Bakken...
- It's why billion-dollar investment funds like BlackRock and Franklin Templeton own millions of shares of this $6 stock I've been telling you about...
And it’s why individual investors should start building their own Bakken oil bank accounts as soon as possible.
Oil production from current fields all around the world is in decline.
And that makes new discoveries — like North Dakota’s Bakken oil field, with a confirmed 7.4 billion barrels (and as much as 24 billion barrels) of recoverable oil — pure gold for individual investors.
But the Bakken is unique, and its profit secrets virtually guarantee investors will make out like bandits — very wealthy bandits.
You see, the Bakken oil play is not new. In fact, geologists have known about it since the 1950s...
Shell Oil even tried drilling there in the 1970s, but the company wasn’t able to get enough of the high-grade light, sweet crude out of the ground to make the venture worthwhile.
The earliest estimates were that the layered shale of the Bakken Formation held a whopping 500 billion barrels of oil. But as Shell proved, getting that oil was a whole different story.
That’s because traditional drilling methods don’t work on shale.
To fully understand all of the fortune-building secrets of the Bakken — and to completely grasp why the $6 stock I’m recommending may be the easiest, most predictable triple-digit gainer in history — allow me to introduce you to Dick Findley...
How a Starving Geologist Found the Largest Oil Field in Modern History
A few years ago, a Billings petroleum geologist by the name of Dick Findley was working out of his basement, searching for oil in an area that had been barren for over 20 years.
Things were rough, and he was struggling to get by. He even flirted with the idea of getting a second job as a restaurant cook... and on a diet of nothing but Ramen Noodles and hard-boiled eggs, who could blame the guy?
But one thing kept Dick going: a conviction that this area — the Bakken oil field — held billions of barrels of recoverable light, sweet crude.
And through sheer luck, he and his partner stumbled upon a porous layer of dolomite 9,000 feet below the ground of a ranch just outside Sidney, Montana.
The oil field he'd found — and the technology that he helped develop to extract the oil — has recently made millionaires out of ordinary North Dakotans and Montanans.
Findley soon took his discovery to energy giant Halliburton, which backed him financially and provided the support to help him develop the necessary drilling technology to efficiently take advantage of this huge oil discovery.
It's true that the oil industry has known about the Bakken Formation for over 20 years, but the problem always was that no one knew how to get at the oil.
The technology just wasn't there — until now.
Bakken Profit Secret #2
"The Bakken is so prolific... one of the top onshore fields found in the past half-century." — Financial Post
It was Findley's idea to drill a well sideways — a technique called "horizontal directional drilling" — in which wildcatters drill down to the oil and then kick out their well thousands of feet to the left or right, sort of like an underground sprinkler.
But horizontal drilling alone isn't enough to get the oil out of the ground...
Findley had to work with Halliburton engineers to figure out a way to both drill sideways and fracture the rock (fracking) to release the oil.
Horizontal drilling and fracturing had been done before — but never together.
This was Findley's revolutionary idea.
And these combined technologies are one key that can unlock 133% in Bakken profits for you...
Because even today, horizontal drilling and “fracking” are not exact sciences. The process is equal parts art and science. And the fact is, some companies are better at horizontal drilling than others.
The second Bakken Profit Secret is that some companies can get more oil out of a well than others...
"It's too early in the play to be sharing information." — Bill Walker, a Denver-based geologist with Headington Co.
The $6 Bakken stock I’ve been telling you about is one such company.
It consistently shows better production rates than most other Bakken drillers. Even the biggest companies, like Hess (NYSE: HES) or Continental (NYSE: CLR), aren’t as good at drilling as this little $6 beauty...
The initial production (IP) rates for recent well completions have averaged as high as 3,034 barrels of oil a day!
These IP rates show that it will pump more oil than its peers... it will make more money... and its stock price will perform better.
My price target for this stock is $19, a solid 220% gain from current prices. But like I said earlier, I won't be surprised to see this stock trade as high as $24.50...
Get In on the Ground Floor of One of the Largest American Oil Booms in History
As I mentioned earlier, my name is Keith Kohl. I'm the energy analyst and investment strategist of the Energy Investor, an investment advisory service.
I’ve built a very successful career at the forefront of new oil and natural gas discoveries.
And my cutting-edge investment research has helped thousands of individual investors make life-changing wealth from the best stocks in the energy sector.
In fact, Energy Investor members have made money on every significant oil and gas field — including the Eagle Ford and Haynesville in Texas, the Marcellus Shale in Pennsylvania, the Oil Sands of Alberta, and of course, North Dakota’s Bakken shale oil field.
Like I said, my readers and I practically discovered the Bakken as an investment.
And we racked up a string of gargantuan triple-digit winners...
But we’re nowhere near done, because oil is the only investment asset the world simply can’t do without.
Whether it’s a small exploration company with a new discovery, or an established major that’s undervalued, you’ll know about it — and profit from it — thanks to Angel's Energy Investor...

"The highest-producing onshore field found in the lower 48 states in the past 56 years." — Wall Street Journal
I’ve been leading investors to the very best-performing energy stocks since 2007.
That was the year the International Energy Agency (IEA) dropped a bombshell on investors when it stated:
"Some $20 trillion of investment in supply infrastructure is needed to meet projected global demand. "
Now, I don’t always trust the IEA... They're in the pocket of global government, and one of their main goals is to gloss over the simple fact that the world has already run out of cheap oil. They do this to keep people from panicking.
But this time — saying $20 trillion is needed for oil production — the IEA was right on target.
Twenty trillion dollars — that’s the size of the opportunity we’re investing for.
And with Energy Investor on your side, you can be sure you’ll get your share in the form of investment profits...
