Grail Oil Field -- A Three Forks Well: 129,000 Bbls In Less Than 6 Months

News

December 14, 2018: thoughts on the "Helis Grail."

December 14, 2018: the "Helis Grail" -- a case study.


November 7, 2018: announced -- QEP will exit the Bakken; Vantage Energy Acquisition Corporation.

July 30, 2018: comment -- my 2 cents worth -- I know the bankers, financial advisors, etc. -- those making money off fees/transactions -- disagree with me, but the biggest mistake the mineral owners in Grail oil field made several years ago was failing to vote in favor of unitizing the field. It was common sense but advisors had personal interests in recommending not unitizing the field; and mineral owners who voted against the proposal were simply either ignorant, or did not trust QEP. Opinion only and I'm probably in the minority. 

July 30, 2018: evidence that QEP is beginning major re-frack program in the Bakken; many wells fracked in Grail (and Deep Water Creek Bay) in late 2017 and early 2018; production updated below for early Grail wells; and re-fracks noted; many wells coming off-line suggesting re-fracks coming; 

November 30, 2014: some huge Grail wells are being reported.

October 23, 2014: the Grail wells have been updated.

March 24, 2014: since my last update, I noted QEP canceled seven permits in the Grail oil field. Graphic at link.

March 3, 2014: QEP withdraws proposal to unitize the Grail oil field. Scroll to bottom of this post to see level of activity in the Grail oil field at time the proposal was withdrawn.

March 1, 2014: Fargo attorney representing a mineral owner out of Bismarck trying to thwart QEP's plans to unitize the Grail; on the dockets next week. 

October 12, 2013: QEP to request unitization of the Grail-Bakken oil field

Original Post

Grail oil field is an irregularly-shaped 30-section oil field just west of the reservation; the field currently has two rigs on site. It is just south of the bull's eye of the Bakken, and shares its eastern border with the reservation. It looks like Helis is targeting the TFS.

June 25, 2012:
  • 20780, 2,190, QEP/Helis, Henderson 1-28/33H, Grail, Bakken, t6/12; cum 510K 5/18; Three Forks, gas shows as high as 5,000 units; frack data not yet posted as far as I could see; no evidence of a re-frack;
Back on March 3, 2011, this was reported:
  • 17722, 2,068, Helis Oil and Gas, LLC, Henderson Federal 4-26/35H, Grail, Bakken; TFS, 35K in 41 days; ~ 24-stage frac; t1/11; cum 345K 5/18;
But this is the "biggie" in Grail, section 17-149-95:
  • 18448, 2,429, Helis Oil and Gas, LLC, Andrecovich 5-17/16H, 24-stage frac; TFS, tested, 9/10; 129K in 4.5 months; 20K/month; t9/10; cum 520K 5/18;no evidence of a re-frack;
Helis was awarded another permit in Grail oil field today (April 26, 2011); and, two more permits on May 3, 2012. This is going to be an interesting field/interesting company to follow.
