Only Two (2) New Permits; Slawson, BR, and Whiting Each With a Nice Well

Maybe a reader will know the answer to this question: 
Burlington Resources has a permit for another "Midnight Run" well in the Union Center oil field. There is a "new" abbreviation in the name: "ULW" ---
  • #24537, loc, BR, Midnight Horse 11-1MBH-ULW
I'm curious if anyone knows what the designation "ULW" means. 
Thank you.


New permits -- 
  • Operators: BR, Slawson
  • Fields: Union Center (McKenzie)
  • Comments: Slawson has a permit for a wildcat in McKenzie County
Wells coming off the confidential list were reported earlier; see sidebar at the right

  1. Bruce: The new Burlington Resources well is "Midnight Horse 11-1MBH-ULW." It will be added to the existing now-producing series of seven other Midnight Run wells that are lined up in 152-96-1.

    Do you have any idea what the "ULW" suffix means?

    1. Wow, great question. I'm wracking my brain; can't think what it could mean. Maybe another reader knows: I've asked the question at the top of the post.
