It was hard not to notice case no. 18793. In its entirety:
Application of Petro-Hunt, L.L.C. for an order amending the applicable orders for the Charlson-Bakken Pool to:So, what's the history of section 27-153-95?
- (i) authorize up to seven horizontal wells to be drilled on a 640-acre spacing unit described as Section 27, T.153N., R.95W., McKenzie County, ND;
- (ii) authorize up to five horizontal wells to be drilled on an existing 1280-acre spacing unit consisting of Sections 4 and 9, T.153N., R.95W.;
- (iii) establish one new overlapping 1280-acre spacing unit consisting of Sections 16 and 17, T.153N., R.95W., and allow one horizontal well to be drilled on such spacing unit;
- (iv) establish two new overlapping 1280-acre spacing units consisting of Sections 3 and 10; and Sections 14 and 23, T.153N., R.95W., and authorize up to two horizontal wells to be drilled on each such spacing unit;
- (v) establish an overlapping 1920-acre spacing unit consisting of Sections 7, 17 and 18, T.153N., R.95W., and authorize one horizontal well to be drilled on such spacing unit;

- 1951, Petro-Hunt, a Madison well; last production in 2009; t9/58; cum 523K;
- 2259, Texaco, a Madison well; PA; t5/59; cum 114K;
- 2421, Texaco, a Madison well; PA; t12/59; cum 520K;

- 6207, Prosper Energy, a Silurian well; PA; t2/78; cum 118K;
- 6366, Petro-Hunt, a Madison/Silurian well; t5/78; still active; cum 344K from the Silurian; cum 130K from the Madison;

- 10086, Petro-Hunt, a Madison well; TA; t6/83; cum 136K;
- 10771, Amerada Hess, DRY, a Silurian well; I guess one can only squeeze so much blood out of a turnip;
- 11735, Thomas A. Haugen Operating, a Red River well; PNC;
- 11802, Filco, Silurian/Red River/Bakken; still active but doing almost nothing; cum 23K from the Bakken; 62K from the Silurian; Red River DRY;
- 17400, 546, Petro-Hunt, Bakken, Sherven Trust 27B-2-4H, t3/09; cum 141K 8/12;
So, although most of the wells are no longer active or doing much, this one section has produced almost 2.7 million bbls of oil with few misses. Now, Petro-Hunt wants to drill another six horizontal wells, with a potential of another three million bbls of oil (and that's primary production). One section with the potential of 6 million bbls or more. (Most folks accept EURs of 500K in the better Bakken; some suggest as much as 1 million bbl-EURs in the best Bakken. The Charlson seems to be between "better" and "best.")
And, the relevant history of sections 4/9-153-95?
- 12031, 407, Petro-Hunt, Silurian 54-1; t5/87; cum 530K 8/12 (but not doing much any more)
- 20342, 1,430, Petro-Hunt, USA 153-95-4B-9-1H, a Three Forks well; 25 stages, 3 million lbs sand, t1/11; cum 472K 6/14
In section 28-153-95 (a reader alerted me to this one, thank you):
- 19845, 1,084, Petro-Hunt, Van Hise Trust 153-95-28C-21-1H, Charlson, t8/11; cum 211K 8/12; wow, > 200K in a year!
As I mentioned to the reader who alerted me to this well, I am really impressed with Petro-Hunt: a lot of permits/wells and very good wells to boot.
