Only one of four holes released from "tight" status was completed and reported an IP:
- 19320, 881, Whiting, Brehm 21-4H, Mountrail County.
- 19667, 902, MRO, Buffalo 34-12H, Dunn
- 20529, 1,523, MRO, Randi USA 41-17H, Mountrail
No wells came off the confidential list today but eleven (11) more wells were reported as "plugged or producing" and you know that "all" Bakken wells are producers.
A company unfamiliar to me took over operation of a couple of Petro Harvester wells. Open Range Inc will take over operation of (both near the Canadian border; near Columbus, ND; both originally Sagebrush Resources wells, and both Madison wells:
- 18899, 1, Busch 2-5, spudded in 4/10, and has a cumulative of 22 bbls 18902, 2, Busch 10-5, spudded in 5/10; and has a cumulative of 401 bbls
- I doubt if the IPs of these two wells were inflated; and,
- This is further proof that an IP of 5,000 is preferable to an IP of 1.
Open Range is new to North Dakota. They now operate a total of four (4) wells all up in Portal field. Two of them are on the confidential list.
