Fourteen Wells Sited / Horizontals in One Section, 22-147-96, Oakdale Oil Field; One Well Already > 500K Bbls; Another Well At 422K Bbls

With two more permits announced today for section 22-147-96, Oakdale oil field, this is an update of this township, sections 22 and 27:

Before reading the rest of this post, you may want to look at an earlier post regarding the Oakdale oil field, all of 8 sections in northwest corner of Dunn County (just across the county line from McKenzie County).

Section 22-147-96:
  • 18275, 1,020, CLR, Hawkinson 1-22H, Oakdale, t2/10; cum 422K 9/12; still producing 9K bbls/month; Three Forks well; 1.9 million lbs; trip gas peaked at 9,300 units; 30 - 40 foot flare;
  • 24350, conf, 
Then south of this section, in 27-147-96, CLR has an Eco-Pad
  • 20208, 960, CRL, Hawkinson 2-27H, Oakdale, Bakken; s1/11; t9/11; F; cum 178K 9/12; 24 stages; 2.4 million lbs; Three Forks (TF1); runs north into section 22;
  • 20210, 803, CLR, Whitman 2-34H, Oakdale, Bakken, s1/11; t9/11; F; cum 533K 9/12; 24 stages; 2.4 million lbs; middle Bakken; runs south;
  • 20211, 263, CLR, Hawkinson 3-27H, Oakdale, Bakken; s1/11; t9/11; F; cum 197K 9/12; 24 stages; 2.4 million lbs; middle Bakken; runs north into section;
  • 20212, 482, CLR, Whitman 3-34H, Oakdale, Bakken; s1/11; t9/11; F; cum 67K 9/12; frack data not available? Three Forks (TF1); runs south;
On October 19, 2012, CLR was issued three more permits for section 22-147-96:
  • 24223, loc-->conf, CLR, Hawkinson 4-22H2, Oakdale,
  • 24224, loc --> conf, CLR, Hawkinson 5-22H, Oakdale,
  • 24225, loc --> conf, CLR, Hawkingson 6-22H3, Oakdale
They will all run south; are these testing the second and third benches of the Three Forks?

Then these five wells:
  • 24282, conf, CLR, Hawkinson 7-22H2,
  • 24283, conf, CLR, Hawkinson 8-22H,
  • 24284, conf, CLR, Hawkinson 9-22H3,
  • 24285, conf, CLR, Hawkinson 10-22H1,
  • 24286, conf, CLR, Hawkinson 11-22H2,
And now, today, November 19, 2012, two more permits were issued for section 22-147-96:
  • 24455, loc, CLR, Hawkinson 13-22H, Oakdale,
  • 24456, loc, CLR, Hawkinson 14-22H2, Oakdale,


  1. If this looks impressive you should check out the 14 permits CLR has in section 6 of the Baker Field. They are all located on eco pads in string like fashion. In the last couple of weeks they spud Atlanta 1 thru Atlanta 4. They have 2 years to complete 14 wells on a 2560 acre spacing unit. When completed they will look like a fan spread out from the north west corner. Alternating from Bakken, Three Forks, Bakken, etc... Should be a couple of very long laterals towards the middle. Almost all laterals go under the river southwest of Williston. These wells have there own salt water dispossal well. Very Aggressive approach..


    1. Thank you for that update. I first posted the permitting back in September:

      but did not know what the plans were in terms of middle Bakken and Three Forks.

      Without question, CLR seems to be testing various development methods. Compare Baker field with Brooklyn field, for example.

      Thank you very much for taking time to update this; fills in lots of gaps. Thank you.
