Petroleum County, Montana


        Petroleum County occupies land in central
    Montana. The surface of the land is generally
    rolling with valleys and benches. The extreme
    north/northeastern border of the county is
    defined by portions of the Missouri River and
    Ft. Peck Lake. The Musselshell River defines
    the remainder of the eastern border. The
    county is traversed by Flat Willow Creek from
    the south, and Box Elder creek from the north.
    They eventually join and empty into the
    Musselshell River on the eastern border of the
    county. The Sacagawea River crosses the
    northern leg of the county and flows into Ft.
    Peck Lake.
