"Using an ultimate of 2.5 Gb for North Dakota Bakken, the peak is for the fall of 2014 at 1Mb/d ... The Hubbert linearization for the period between 1990-2013 trends towards an ultimate of 2500 Mb ... Adding the forecast of Bakken and non-Bakken each with an ultimate of 2.5 Gb gives a peak for North Dakota at 1.06 Mb/d in the fall of 2014 and a sharp decline with only 0.2 Mb/d in 2020 ... In 2012, the North Dakota Department of Mineral Resources forecasted natural gas production with a slow decline, which is in contradiction to the sharp decline of tight oil production coming mainly from fractures and not from the pores of the reservoir."
