There is another producing well in this section:

18731, 1,434, Hess/Tracker, Wing 15-1H, t7/10; cum 136K 3/12; 
April 22, 2012: random look at a Sinclair well in the Little Knife oil field (Porcupine)

April 22, 2012: a 6-well pad for Hess in Little Knife oil field

December 28, 2011: random look at more Madison wells in the Little Knife oil field.

Original Post

The Little Knife field is a fairly large field in North Dakota: 214 sections. It is rectangular, running north to south. There are no "major" cities inside this field; it is southwest of the Fort Berthold Indian Reservation. The nearest town is Killdeer about six miles east; Killdeer is at about the center of north-south line of the Little Knife field.

If one divides the field into thirds, the southernmost third has historically been the most active -- that's where a slew of conventional wells are still producing oil. During the most recent "Bakken" boom, the Little Knife has been fairly active. Most of the activity is in the northern third and the southern third. The middle third is relatively free of activity.

There is an Orion Belt in the Little Knife (a CLR Eco-Pad: four wells running east-west on one pad). Click here for the results of the Arthur-Hegler Eco-Pad. It should be noted that Harold Hamm stated that production was being restricted on these wells.

Going from north to south, here is the activity by file (permit) number. Unless otherwise stated, the wells are long laterals (2 sections):

(P) = Producing
(C) = Confidential
NR = IP not reported
(BR) = before I started keeping records

  1. does the dressler well show any production,, not listed on here, 17123, I think,,142-92 sec.142

  2. Dressler 13-1H, file number 17123, is not in Little Knife oil field. It is a wildcat located in section 13, T142N-92W, just southeast of Murphy Creek. NDIC lists the well as active as of 11/15/2008. It is a long lateral, sections 13 and 14. IPs and production data should be available but my data base, which is pretty good, does not have any IP recorded. Either I missed it, or it has not been reported, which makes no sense. I don't subscribe to premium services so I cannot add much more.
