December 20, 2015: a well on a 5,210-acre unit will come off confidential list this weekend; will be reported Monday. 

November 22, 2014: CLR getting better wells in the Brooklyn oil field?

November 22, 2014: from the December, 2014, NDIC dockets --
  • 23424, CLR, Brooklyn-Bakken, establish a 5120-acre unit (8 sections); 2 wells; Williams
October 17, 2014: note #23106 below; this well has one of the best IPs as of 8/14; it was drilled/completed about the time Harold Hamm was talking about newer completion methods (high proppant volume); it was also the Three Forks; some have opined that the where found together, the Three Forks may in fact better than the middle Bakken.

Updates

December 27, 2017: no new permits in all of 2016 and 2017.

June 11, 2014: random note on the Brooklyn oil field

October 16, 2013: This is the first permit issued for a Brooklyn well in calendar year 2013 (see above). The last Brooklyn permit was issued December 10, 2012.

May 26, 2013: data for the Brooklyn field has been updated. There are no rigs in the Brooklyn field at the present time. There are two CLR rigs in Dollar Joe oil field, immediately to the east. It appears that CLR has moved from the Brooklyn to the Dollar Joe, moving closer to the very prolific and first oil field discovered in the Williston Basin: the Beaver Lodge. CLR has about five locations in the Beaver Lodge; one actively producing well (#17663) which is not a particularly good well, drilled in 2009.

March 25, 2013: random update regarding CLR's 2560-acre spacing in the Brooklyn oil field.

February 25, 2013: the field is still very active; a rig continues to work this field; about 18 wells still on confidential status; all but two sections held by production (but last two sections with a well on confidential); production numbers have been updated below

December 10, 2012: two more permits in Brooklyn field, CLR

November 6, 2012: two more permits for Brooklyn oil field, section 29;

October 31, 2012: two more permits for Brooklyn oil field; section 12;

September 24, 2012: added four more Brooklyn oil field wells; four more "Juneau" wells; looks like four wells on one pad in section 11;

September 17, 2012: added two more Brooklyn oil field wells; two more "Bismarck" wells;

July 20, 2012: added two more Brooklyn oil field wells; looks like they could be naming some of the wells after the home towns of their roughneck crews.

June 26, 2012: CLR has permits for four more Brooklyn oil field wells; same section, perhaps same pad: two additional "Mildred" wells; and, two additional "Rennerfeldt" wells (the original Mildred and Rennerfeldt wells have each produced slightly more than 100K bbls to date)

May 30, 2012: CLR has permits for six more Brooklyn oil field wells; I think they are three 2-well pads. This is really quite a field.

April 19, 2012: another CLR permit in Brooklyn oil field; pattern developing.

March 30, 2012: a reader noted, in the March 28, 2012 hearing dockets:
Case No. 17195:
Application of Continental Resources, Inc. for an order amending the field
rules for the Brooklyn-Bakken Pool to create two 2560-acre spacing units
comprised of Sections 14, 23, 26 and 35; and Sections 18, 19, 30 and 31,
T.155N., R.98W., Williams County, ND, authorizing the drilling of
multiple horizontal wells from said well pad within each 2560-acre spacing
unit; eliminating any tool error requirements and such other relief as is
appropriate.
Much has been discussed elsewhere regarding the size of spacing units. Someone smarter than I may be able to explain the reason for this CLR request. Note: all Bakken-Brooklyn oil field leases are now held by production; current spacing in the entire Bakken-Brooklyn is 1280-acre. [Update, Octoer 15, 2013: it is now very well understood why operators went to 2560-acre spacing. Update, October 7, 2012: one reason for larger spacing units is to eliminate waste by allowing better siting.]
March 29, 2012: another CLR permit added to this small field: 22679, Helena 3-7H. 

February 24, 2012: it looks like all leases in Brooklyn field are now held by production. It will be interesting to see if CLR moves the rig to another field, or continues to develop the Brooklyn.

January 23, 2012: the list of wells below has been updated (IPs, and cumulative production numbers)

See update, October 6, 2011, here.

Continental Resources has a cluster of wells in Brooklyn oil field about thirteen miles northeast of Williston, North Dakota, and about five miles directly north of state highway 1804 east of Williston on the way out to the lake. It is one township in size, 36 sections, T155N-R98W. Data below is updated periodically.
