Coal mines generate 93% of the North Dakota electricity. Oil was discovered near Tioga in 1951, generating 53 million barrels (8,400,000 m3) of oil a year by1984. Western North Dakota is currently in an oil boom: the Tioga, Stanley and Minot-Burlington communities are experiencing rapid growth. The oil reserves of the Bakken Formation may hold up to 400 billion barrels (6.4×1010 m3) of oil, 25 times larger than the reserves in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. However, a report issued in April 2008 by the U.S. Geological Surveyestimates that the oil recoverable by current technology in the Bakken formation is two orders of magnitude less, in the range of 3.0–4.3 billion barrels, with a mean of 3.65 billion.
