April 27, 2017: #20738 and #16694 have been off-line since 12/16.
April 27, 2017: #16694 is an interesting well. It was originally drilled in 2007 as HA-Mogen-152-95-0805H-1. In 2014, the company requested the name be changed to HA-Mogen-152-95-0805H-1 ST2, to re-enter the well and drill a sidetrack lateral. See graphic below.
One can see the production profile at this post.

Original PostElsewhere they're talking about a Hess gusher:
- 20738, 1,496, Hess, HA-Mogen-152-95-0805H-2, Hawkeye, Bakken; s7/11; t12/11; F; cum 440K 3/14; producing 44K in its first full month of production; 38 stages; 3.7 million lbs including 3.5 million pounds ceramics (Econoprop); Three Forks;
- 16694, AB/348, Hess, HA-Mogen-152-95-0805H-1, Hawkeye, Bakken, s9/07/t 12/07; F; cum 143K 12/11;
Case No. 16110: Application of Hess Corp. for an order amending the applicable orders for the Hawkeye-Bakken Pool to allow up to six horizontal wells and up to eight vertical wells to be drilled in a 1280-acre spacing unit described as Sections 18 and 19, T.152N., R.95W., McKenzie County, ND, and such other relief as is appropriate.By the way, in this very same section (as the two wells noted above), these Madison wells (among others):
- 1596, 303/SI/PA, Hess, Hawkeye-Madison Unit F-618 HR, s11/57; t12/57; cum 788,158 bbls 12/11;
- 1555, 211/PNA, Hess, Hawkeye-Madison Uit G-617, s10/58; t12/58; cum 302K bbls 12/1969;
And this is why I remain excited about the Bakken. Just think: up to 6 horizontal wells and 8 vertical wells in one 1280-acre spacing unit! And EURs are unaffected by neighboring wells. In the core Bakken horizontal Bakken/Three Forks wells are going to have EURs of a million.
Back to the very first link at the top of the post: this is what else they are saying:
- Helis has completed at least one well in the south Blue Buttes area for over 47,000 bbls, Three Forks
- writer "believes" several Bakken wells north of Parshall had early months with production > 50,000 bbls
- several other Three Forks producers in the Hawkeye/Charlson with very strong wells; the best is the Petro-Hunt Federal which has produced >1.2 million bbls and has not yet been fracked
- the Mogen well had about 23 feet of Sanish sand below the Bakken shale; the lateral was drilled in the dolomite just below that sandstone
- writer feels the Sanish sand is contributing to the high rate of production
- some say the Three Forks is over 200 feet thick in the central Bakken
