North Dakota's Director of the Department of Mineral Resources estimates that 90% of all crude oil produced in North Dakota's Bakken Shale next year will grab a ticket to ride. Given that 60% of the region's crude hit the rails this year, and the Bakken's top producer, Continental Resources (NYSE:CLR), has already confirmed it is shipping 100% of its crude via rail, this prediction may very well become a reality in 2014.
