That alone is worth your time if interested in the Williston Basin. But in updating that list, I was reminded of two great Lodgepole wells practically inside Dickinson city limits on the southwest side, if not inside the city.
Permits Issued in 2009
- 18190, 463, Armstrong, Laurine Engel 1, Lodgepole, t9/09; cum 347K 6/12;
- 18496, 474, Armstrong, Gruman 18-3, Lodgepole Pool, t3/10 cum 255K 6/12;
The Gruman at 18 months old, had produced 160K bbls and was still producing 10,000 bbls/month.
Most of us think of the Lodgepole as being concentrated down in the Dickinson area, and that's probably accurate, but I hear an oil company has hit a Lodgepole where it was unexpected. It is still confidential, so I won't say more, but I want to post this much for time/date stamp for archival purposes. [August 18, 2012: I was referring to an Oasis Lodgepole north of Williston -- Tyrone oil field, I believe. It did not turn out to be as exciting as some thought it would be.]
