14 For the 14th -- Happy Valentine's Day -- Fourteen (14) New Permits -- The Bakken, North Dakota, USA

Daily activity report, February 14, 2012 --

Operators: Hess (7), Slawson (2), True Oil (2), Zenergy, Dakota-3, CLR

Fields: Ross, Forthun, Cow Creek, Hawkeye, Van Hook, and Corinth.

It appears that four of the Hess permits are for vertical "observation" wells in Hawkeye field, HA-Swenson Observation 18-1/2/3, and 4.

True Oil has permits for two wildcats in McKenzie County. Hess, also, has permits for two wildcats, also in McKenzie County.

Interestingly enough, a recently issued permit was cancelled by Denbury:
  • 22355, PNC, Denbury, Swenson 36-35SH, McKenzie County. 
Also, Whiting announced it was permanently abandoning:
  • 12992, PNA, Whiting, MOI Rough Rider 24-23H, Rough Rider oil field. This well was spud in 1990, and only produced for about five years before going to minimal production. Its total production was about 77,000 bbls.
Not unexpectedly, the True Oil permits are for wells in a section adjoining their Red Wing Creek oil field.

No completed wells were reported.
