Six (6) New Permits -- The Williston Basin, North Dakota, USA; Get Ready For Some Serious EOR

Active rigs: 189

Six (6) new permits --
  • Operators: Emerald Oil (3), EOG, Hunt, Petro-Hunt
  • Fields: Boxcar Butte (McKenzie), Parshall (Mountrail, Sather Lake (McKenzie), Stockyard Creek (Williams)
  • Comments: They never seem to run out of drilling locations in Stockyard Creek, east of Williston.
Wells coming off the confidential list were posted earlier; see sidebar at the right.

Six pages of operator transfer; averaging about 40 wells/page, that would be about 250 wells being transferred from BR to Denbury. With the exception of three wells, they all have file numbers from 13XXX to 16XXX. It looks like there were seven (7) salt water disposal wells. Denbury is known for EOR. Looking at four random wells: Red River wells, Cedar Hills oil field, Bowman County (all wells were, in fact, in Bowman County).
