RDO In Dickinson, North Dakota, Expands; Moves Location; North Of Dickinson On Highway 22; Near New Truck Route

The Dickinson Press is reporting:
RDO Equipment Co. has the ability to supply the John Deere and Vermeer machinery needed to build the Bakken.
The company has had a presence in Dickinson for nearly three years, but quickly outgrew its east Dickinson location near Interstate 94. It has found a lot on the city’s north side along Highway 22.
The planned Dickinson bypass is set to connect I-94 and Highway 22 through 116th Avenue Southwest west of Dickinson and 33rd Street Southwest, which is now a gravel road that travels past RDO’s new location, which opened in April.
The bypass will allow truck traffic to bypass Dickinson on the northwest side of town, very similar to the original bypass in Williston, in terms of location to the city.

Going south of I-94, in the opposite direction to the proposed truck route, one would be headed to the new CBR terminal and MDU-Calumet refinery.

After I Post The IPs Of Wells Coming Off The Confidential List This Morning, I'm Signing Off; New Poll

It's shaping up to be a day I don't want to follow the news.

Good luck to all. The wells coming off the confidential list over the weekend and today are posted here.

*********************************

While waiting, I might as well clear out an old poll. Obviously the Syrian issue went nowhere, and oil didn't come close to surging as some thought might happen. Results of the poll in which we asked if readers thought oil would hit $145 by now:
  • Yes: 10%
  • No, not higher than $130: 19%
  • No, not higher than $120: 38%
  • No, the high ($114) has been reached for now: 32%
Now, the new poll:
Will NYMEX oil drop below $100 by the end of the month, October, 2013?

Monday, Monday -- The Bakken ... And Apple (Why Not?)

First off the blocks: KOG in SeekingAlpha.
There is only one potential rock in this shoe that could slow down the rate of progress Kodiak is experiencing: the looming specter of global contraction. The GDP numbers from China have been accused of being soft this quarter, and the EU remains stymied, if now slightly less than previously estimated, by untenable debts incurred by the peripheral states and a large amount of resentment as a result in the central economic powers.
These two issues, in conjunction, could result in a near term drag on global oil demand, and the cumulative effects they could have on global oil prices will remain one the largest impacts on the rate of development of the domestic oil plays, and will be coupled with further downside risk associated with the recent surplus of oil reported in the past few months.
No, the "potential rock in this shoe" is the Federal government stepping in with new fracking rules. As posted earlier, Whiting has this Bakken rule: no drilling in North Dakota where federal permits are required (BLM land) -- previously posted.

Futures: gonna be ugly today. Already down 120 points. Oil could drop below $100.

MacRumors is reporting: AAPL tops Google, Coke to become world's most valuable brand. It quotes The New York Times:
Every so often, a company changes our lives, not just with its products, but also with its ethos. This is why, following Coca-Cola’s 13-year run at the top of Best Global Brands, Interbrand has a new #1—Apple. Few brands have enabled so many people to do so much so easily, which is why Apple has legions of adoring fans, as evidenced by the record-breaking launch of the iPhone 5c/5s. For revolutionizing the way we work, play, and communicate—and for mastering the ability to surprise and delight—Apple has set a high bar for aesthetics, simplicity, and ease of use that all other tech brands are now expected to match, and that Apple itself is expected to continually exceed.

From our perspective, Apple’s internal brand strength has remained steady. CEO Tim Cook has assembled a solid team that is aligned around the Apple vision, which has allowed them to deliver against the promise time and time again. There’s been a lot of change at the top in the last 12 months, but the alignment of both hardware and software design under Jonathan Ive is a major step toward maintaining focus. A shrewd move, perhaps, given the stiffer than ever competition over the last 12 months: Samsung is now the world’s most profitable smartphone manufacturer, Google has expanded Android and its maps still seem to be the “preferred” route, and Windows Phone 8 certainly raised more than a few eyebrows.

Who Says Japan And China Can't Cooperate -- This May Be A Bigger Story Than Folks Realize

There are a lot of story lines in this short press release:
Enbridge announced that it has entered into an agreement to construct facilities and provide transportation services for the Hangingstone Oil Sands Project in Canada. The initial term of the transportation agreement is 20 years. Oil sands extraction company, Japan Canada Oil Sands Limited (:JACOS) is the operator of the Hangingstone Oil Sands Project. However, the project is jointly owned by JACOS and Chinese offshore giant CNOOC Ltd.

Per the agreement, Enbridge will construct a 50-km pipeline with a capacity to transport 40,000 barrels per day (bpd) of diluted bitumen produced at the Hangingstone Project to the Enbridge terminal in Cheecham, Alberta. The project is expected to be operational in early 2016, with initial volumes of 18,000 bpd. However regulatory approval for the project is pending.

Updates

Later, 3:04 pm CT: the original post was posted at 7:15 a.m. -- see date/time stamp. I, somewhat tongue-in-cheek, suggested that the "showdown" was "simply political theater to raise funds going in the 2014 mid-terms. Now at 3:05 pm CT, I see this story: the Democratic National Party is broke. The DNC owes creditors $18 million; the GOP has $12 million in cash to spend. Fortune is reporting:
There's another budget crisis in Washington, and it's unfolding inside the Democratic party. The Democratic National Committee remains so deeply in the hole from spending in the last election that it is struggling to pay its own vendors.
It is a highly unusual state of affairs for a national party -- especially one that can deploy the President as its fundraiser-in-chief -- and it speaks to the quiet but serious organizational problems the party has yet to address since the last election, obscured in part by the much messier spectacle of GOP infighting.
The Democrats' numbers speak for themselves: Through August, 10 months after helping President Obama secure a second term, the DNC owed its various creditors a total of $18.1 million, compared to the $12.5 million cash cushion the Republican National Committee is holding.
Original Post

The Wall Street Journal

The showdown, of course, is the top story. No links; story everywhere. However, this interesting bit of trivia: political fund-raising for both parties is at record levels over the showdown -- wouldn't it be interesting to learn that the whole showdown was simply political theater to raise funds going into the 2014 mid-term elections?

This is why the individual mandate needs to be delayed. This thing is not ready for prime time.
Obama administration officials scrambling to get the health law's insurance marketplaces ready to open on Tuesday keep hitting technical problems, while government-funded field workers across the country say they aren't fully prepared to help Americans enroll in the program.
Implementation of the law is expected to proceed even if the government partially shuts down because Congress fails to pass the necessary spending bills. But insurers, who are counting on the law to usher in new customers, say that even short-lived quirks could sour Americans on participating. That could deter people who are on the fence about buying coverage—especially young, healthy people needed to make the law work.
What is not being widely reported, the on-line exchanges will be run by Solyndra-like companies: government funded; little experience; will collapse once the bills start arriving for unlimited lifetime expenses for pre-existing conditions. These on-line exchanges will attract those facing high medical bills; the low-risk won't enroll. Anyone who understands how spreading risk and how insurance works will see how this mandate was set up to fail.

Look at the names of the big insurers that have dropped out of the exchanges and the ten states in deep trouble as insured are dropped off the rolls: California, Missouri, Connecticut, Maryland, South Carolina, New York, New Jersey, Iowa, Wisconsin, Georgia. Voters in these states will remember the name of the act: OBAMA-care.

So, readers can follow this company -- see how this debacle plays out:
Pradeep Goel arrived from India 23 years ago to study in America. On Tuesday, Mr. Goel, now chief executive of a technology company, has to make sure the software behind two new health-insurance exchanges doesn't crash. 
For the state exchanges to work, normally separate computer systems have to talk to each other and it is EngagePoint Inc.'s job to build software bridges between those systems. When a consumer tries to sign up online for insurance, the state's computers have to interact with federal computer systems to verify the person's Social Security number, citizenship status and income. The state exchange also has to link up to the private insurance companies offering policies on the exchanges.
Within minutes, the program has to produce a final answer, telling enrollees what plans are available, how much in federal subsidies they are eligible for and whether they qualify for Medicaid. There are thousands of different scenarios determining whether a person might qualify for help, Mr. Goel said.
You will note that Apple, Amazon, Google, Microsoft, H-P, IBM, SAIC are not in the news with these exchanges, but instead companies like EngagePoint Inc. founded in 2007. I don't think it is publicly traded.

The Los Angeles Times

No survivors after fiery crash at Santa Monica airport: business jet; holds up to 8 people. Authorities have not said how many folks were on the plane. I guess that's a state secret. But that's the top story in Los Angeles this morning.

And then this: truancy is at crisis level in California. One-quarter of California elementary students are truant. Wow. Twenty-five percent.
Among counties, Santa Cruz, San Luis Obispo and Calaveras had the highest truancy rates — about 30% — last year. Los Angeles County's rate was 20.5%, with about 166,000 truant elementary students.
Among school districts, three of the five elementary campuses with truancy rates at 90% or higher were in the Pasadena Unified School District, where the overall truancy rate increased to 66% last year from 17% in 2008-09. Eric Sahakian, Pasadena's director of child welfare, attendance and safety, said "dramatic budget cuts" in staff handling attendance as well as financial hardship among families during the recession contributed to the district's elevated rates. The system has launched a new attendance improvement plan this year.
90% truancy? I can't even imagine.

***********************************
The New York Times
WASHINGTON — As the nation’s spy agencies assess the fallout from disclosures about their surveillance programs, some government analysts and senior officials have made a startling finding: the impact of a leaked terrorist plot by Al Qaeda in August has caused more immediate damage to American counterterrorism efforts than the thousands of classified documents disclosed by Edward Snowden, the former National Security Agency contractor. 
Since news reports in early August revealed that the United States intercepted messages between Ayman al-Zawahri, who succeeded Osama bin Laden as the head of Al Qaeda, and Nasser al-Wuhayshi, the head of the Yemen-based Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, discussing an imminent terrorist attack, analysts have detected a sharp drop in the terrorists’ use of a major communications channel that the authorities were monitoring. Since August, senior American officials have been scrambling to find new ways to surveil the electronic messages and conversations of Al Qaeda’s leaders and operatives.  
I don't think the article mentioned who leaked this information, but I remember the news reports of SecState closing embassies based on intel -- and the leaks must have followed in short order.

The Three Components Of ObamaCare

The Components of ObamaCare

[Initially posted September 27, 2013 as details started to become clear]

There are three components of ObamaCare: employer mandates, individual mandates, and everything else (hidden taxes and fees)

Employer mandates: 
  • delayed for one year; delayed until 2015
  • cost-shifting began in late 2013; employers moving employees to exchanges
Individual mandates:
One can start to see how ObamaCare is going to turn out exactly like Solyndra.

1. The individual mandate -- the cornerstone of ObamaCare -- will be provided by the "on-line exchanges."

2. None of the large, well-known health insurers will be participating in these "on-line exchanges." Small, under-capitalized, unknown companies will run these "on-line exchanges." Many of these companies will be start-ups with minimal, if any, experience in health care insurance.

3. These exchanges will offer very low premiums for insurance that meets the minimum standards mandated by ObamaCare. My understanding is that some premiums will be as low as $5.00/month (posted with link earlier). Of course, these policies will have huge out-of-pocket expenses: co-pays.

4. The large insurers say they will not support the "on-line exchanges" because they will be inundated with applications from those with pre-existing conditions and open-ended demands for psychiatric care.

5. It is my understanding that ObamaCare does not allow insurance companies to set an upper limit for lifetime claims. If that is true, the under-capitalized, small companies are at risk for large claims that won't be offset by the number of folks they would need to sign up who have minimal claims.

6. It took two to five years for the DOE-backed "Solyndra" companies ("the list of 38") to go bankrupt. We will see the same thing with the "on-line exchanges."  A lot of federal money will be provided these small, under-capitalized companies, but over time, they will run into financial difficulties, and gradually disappear. 
Everything else
  • Taxes on medical devices
  • Etc

RBN Energy: another great article for those who want to better understand the Bakken. In this post, RBN Energy looks at the future of CBR to the west coast.
For Bakken producers and shippers, the economics of moving crude from North Dakota to the West Coast by rail are governed by the price spread between Bakken crude and the West Coast benchmark Alaska North Slope (ANS). So far this year those economics have been favorable.

Shell abandons two shale projects

Shell abandons two projects, first out west (Colorado), and then down south (Eagle Ford). The Wyoming Star-Tribune is reporting:
Royal Dutch Shell PLC became the latest company to abandon efforts to turn Western Slope oil shale into oil, joining a long line of companies in a boom and bust cycle in the region.
The company said energy markets have changed since the project started in 1982, and the company no longer wants to continue efforts to turn oily shale rock into liquid by heating the rock and pumping out the oil.
Meanwhile in the Eagle Ford, Reuters is reporting:
Royal Dutch Shell plans to sell its 106,000-acre stake in the Eagle Ford shale formation in South Texas, the Wall Street Journal reported on Sunday.
Shell's decision comes after it took a $2.2 billion charge against its U.S. shale business in August. 
Major oil companies have struggled in oil-and-gas rich regions such as the Eagle Ford, where smaller energy firms have thrived. BG Group and BHP Billiton have also taken impairment charges against their U.S. shale assets.
Unless the Bakken is a whole lot better than the Eagle Ford this suggests that majors may not be interested in the Bakken, either.

Siemens To Cut 15,000 Jobs Worldwide By End Of 2014

Several stories.

From Reuters: a third of them in Germany, as part of a $8.1 billion cost cutting program

From The Wall Street Journal: about half the total number will be those cuts completed by September 30, 2013, the end of the company's fiscal year; the other half (about 7,500) will be through September 30, 2014.

The Wall Street Journal article is much more comprehensive in its scope of reporting. I was surprised to see how a) little Reuters actually reported; b) how Reuters seemed to sugar-coat issues with the unions; and, c) the fact that Reuters conveniently failed to mention that Siemens made wind turbines.

This, for example was reported by The Wall Street Journal but not mentioned in the Reuters article:
The company's profits have been hit by a number of mishaps, including delays in completing wind-farm projects in the North Sea and delivering high-speed trains to the German railway. The company jettisoned its loss-making solar-power business and plans to sell other units such as airport luggage systems, water technologies, and mail automation. 
I believe Siemens is best known to some Americans because they see Siemens as a wind energy company. Obviously that is not accurate, but that's how a lot of Americans see Siemens.

This was the extent of the ABC News article:
The Munich-based company has around 370,000 employees and makes a wide range of industrial machinery, including trains, power generators and transmission equipment, and medical scanners.
Not one mention of wind.

MarketWatch mentioned even less.  

In both the Bloomberg article and The Wall Street Journal article, references to GE were made, but no mention was made of GE's increasing shift from wind to the oil and gas industry.

It Is Possible I Will Be Off The Net Most Of The Day

When I am off the net, I cannot reply to comments. And I cannot answer e-mail. So everything will be delayed.

New Poll: The Showdown

First, the results of a recent poll, in which we asked whether we would see stories on railcar shortages for the North Dakota harvest:
  • Yes, much worse due to the oil boom: 14%
  • Yes, but no worse than previous years: 58%
  • No: 27%
For the record, I did not post any stories on railcar shortages; no one sent me any stories on railcar shortages; and, I did not see any stories on railcar shortages so far this year.

Now, the new poll. On Wednesday, October 2, 2013, for the federal government:
  • it will be business as usual
  • non-essential government workers will be told to stay home

************************************ The Showdown ************************************

This is fluid. I don't get television and I seldom listen to the radio, and I don't get the Sunday paper, so I don't know where this issue stands. The last thing I read was the DrudgeReport headline yesterday morning.

*********************WHERE IT STANDS NOW******************

House majority leader says the Republicans, at least in the House, are going to join ranks and not cave. The president has said he will not negotiate.

1. As he did before, the president will "waive" the government shutdown, saying he wants to give the Senate and the House a few more hours to negotiate (he did that last time; Congress missed the midnight deadline but they were close, so he told the government employees to keep working). [Alternate ending: after "blinking" on Syria, the president may want to emulate Dirty "make my day" Harry, and tell non-essential government employees not to show up for work on Tuesday, October 1, 2013. Name-calling ("rump Republicans") did not help the situation. That may have been the tipping point for the GOP to join ranks.]

2. The question is: how long can the president "waive" the shutdown? If he can "waive" it for 24 hours or 72 hours (whatever it was) like he did last time, can he "waive" it for a week? Can he "waive" it for a month?

3. Obviously there will be a point in time when he can no longer delay the shutdown if an agreement is not made.

4. During this period of "purgatory," for lack of a better word, both sides will see who is getting the most blame. That will determine who blinks first. The media, of course, will blame the Republicans.

5. The end-of-the-September/first-of-October government checks will arrive; they are already in the mail. The mid-month government checks are at risk; military members are paid at the end of the month (technically the first day of the following month). I believe Social Security checks are staggered throughout the month -- though it is my understanding they will be paid regardless because Social Security is separate from the funding bill. I don't know. Government obligations, I assume, can come due any day of the month.

******************THE HOUSE GOP****************
 
1. I don't know if the GOP in the House can hold ranks if the mainstream media supports the president and the polls turn against the Republicans. I don't watch television so I don't know how serious the House majority leader is. For me, the wild card is the House -- whether they can hold their position in the face of a media onslaught.

2. As a body, I don't know if they have much to lose; individually, it depends. My hunch: the Senate GOP will weigh in on their friends in the House.

************************POTUS**********************

1. It is said that presidents are very, very concerned about their legacies. Right now, this president doesn't have much of a legacy and he won't have any legacy if the Affordable Care Act does not succeed.

2. I said this the last time: I don't think the president wants to be a) the first black president; and, b) the first president to permit the US to default on its debts and obligations. Not being a businessman he may not realize how serious that is, and to the 47% they won't understand. But I think even Greece has paid its debts (with the help of German money).


3. Technically, all that is being asked is to "delay the individual mandate." The "employer mandate" has been delayed and "everyone" hates the "individual mandate." This might be a way for the president to save face. I'm using the Syrian analogy.

4. It's pretty obvious the Affordable Care Act -- even if it was a perfect program -- is not ready for prime time. This would be a way for the president to save face, and perhaps save the program: delay implementation, but allow funding to continue to set up the exchanges, so that the program will be in better shape when it does go live.

Who's Got The Best Bakken Wells -- Richard Zeits -- WPX, Slawson, Statoil, Whiting, KOG, Newfield, And The List Goes On -- Without CLR

I wasn't going to post this until I had a chance to read it, study it, but I'm just too busy.

So, I will post it, link it, and then maybe come back to it later.

Richard Zeits is posting at SeekingAlpha:
With over eight thousand horizontal wells drilled to date in the Middle Bakken and Three Forks formations of the Williston Basin, the data set of drilling results and production histories would seem more than sufficient to draw conclusions with regard to expected drilling economics and investment returns in the play. Still, establishing a meaningful economic model for the Bakken often proves to be a challenging task. Three major factors contribute.
The article has a lot of nice basic information.

IRR is the key according to Richard Zeits. We should be seeing a lot more about IRR in corporate presentations going forward; investors and laymen are getting smarter. 

I noted that 23 operators are "ranked" on the graph provided by WPX, and CLR is not even listed. CLR is the "face of the Bakken" and probably has the most Bakken acreage. CLR was not even mentioned in the body of the article. I did a work search: "Continental Resources" comes up once: in the comments. Zeits says he has an article on CLR coming up soon. Apparently many of the wells analyzed were "CLR" wells but operated by others. It's very, very difficult to try to sort out which operator has the best wells.

When I first started blogging, I noted that Slawson really seemed to have great wells; it was borne out in this article: Slawson ranked #2.

A lot of enquiring folks elsewhere have said that Statoil hyped their IPs, and that their wells weren't all that good. In this article, Statoil ranked #3.

Whiting ranks #4: no doubt due to the Sanish.

KOG ranks #5, and could certainly move up with its new wells.

Most disappointing was where Oasis stood, but one must remember where Oasis got started.

It will be fun to look at this list in 10 years.

The delta between #1 WPX and #2 Slawson certainly raises questions with how things are measured.

Anyway, as noted, I haven't had time to really read the article.

Maybe more later.

For investors, I use something entirely different for evaluating the prospects of a Bakken operator.

For investors, the most important data point is where one thinks "we" are in the Bakken: if we are in the first inning of a nine-inning game, things look a lot different than if one feels we are in the bottom of the 7th inning in the Bakken.

I think we are in the 2nd inning.

Best States For Business; Other Williston Wire Highlights

North Dakota has moved to the #2 spot, well ahead of Texas, #7. I was surprised that North Dakota beat out North Carolina. I don't quite agree that Virginia, ranking #22 in business costs vs #3 for North Dakota deserves to be in the top spot. Virginia is #4 vs North Dakota, #19, in quality of life -- that is entirely subjective. How does one even begin to measure that?

It's hard to believe that North Dakota is #17 in regulatory environment and Virginia is #1. But I guess I shouldn't complain. North Dakota has been moving up the list for the past several years. I never thought it would get this high.

Other highlights from The Williston Wire (no links; it is easy to subscribe to The Williston Wire):

The Williston Brewing Company has opened to big crowds. It's quite a story: Angel Cervantes and Dennis Pacifico from Phoenix.

Famous Dave's will open in Williston in December, 2013. Where are all these eateries finding employees?

Parshall welcomes a new Mexican restaurant.

The new Wild Bison Travel Center opened southwest of Alexander. I guess it was Jack's Store; now Wild Bison Travel Center. Very early in the blog I have a photograph of the sign for Jack's Store announcing its future site. This has gone from a 3,000-square foot building to a 13,500-square foot travel center. Southwest of Alexander. The city that will soon be getting a crude oil storage center. Huge things happening in Alexander.

Construction begins on Watford City bypass. This will be southwest of the city. It is interesting that in the three cities in the heart of the Bakken (Williston, Watford City, Alexander): it is the southwest side of the cities that is experiencing the oil traffic.

The North Dakota Highway Patrol will add 15 new officers after Thanksgiving.

Ray, North Dakota, is looking to have its own police department, something they have not had in years.

Missouri Meadows, four miles east of Williston's Wal-Mart, is now open for business: 109 one-acre lots.

A Massachusetts developer plans 162 new housing units for Crosby.

Now that the county has nixed Christ's mission for the homeless, the city of Williston will study what to do next for the homeless. WWJD?



Would Federal Permitting Stop The Bakken?

Federal permitting has stopped drilling in one of the sweet spots in the Bakken. KXNews is reporting:
An area of western North Dakota, that's proven to be a hot spot in the Bakken, is pretty much being ignored.
Oil companies say the federal government and their rules are to blame.
There are zero wells drilling in the National Grasslands in the state.
The reason, it takes too long for oil companies to get federal drilling permits.
It takes at least 180 days to drill on federal land, versus 10 days on state land.
One of the top producing wells in the state was drilled on federal land.
Jack Ekstrom with Whiting Petroleum says the federal government is forgoing potential revenue by creating a difficult situation for oil companies.
Ekstrom says, "We have a stated charge in Whiting to avoid federal acreage at all costs. Because you can't afford the delays in permits that take a year."

A Re-Look At The New North Dakota Law On Flaring

North Dakota amended state law on flaring:
House Bill No. 1134 maintains North Dakota's one year flaring grace period, but upon the expiration of the grace period, increased the permitted activities to include a compression collection system that intakes at least seventy-five percent (75.00%) of the gas and natural gas liquids volume for beneficial consumption by various means.  This provision also includes any well equipped with other value-added processes as approved by the North Dakota Industrial Commission, which reduces the volume or intensity of the flair by more than sixty percent (60.00%).  Additionally, if the gas is collected and/or used by one of these optional systems, the gas is granted an exemption from gross production taxation for a period of two (2) years and thirty (30) days from the time of first production.
I mention this because of this observation regarding the October NDIC hearing dockets: there were only two cases in which an operator asked for permission to continue flaring at max crude oil production. Generally, there are many, many more cases. For example, on the June, 2013, agenda, there were 34 cases in which operators asked flaring be allowed past the "grace period."  There have been other months in which there were few or no cases regarding flaring, but with all the activity in the Bakken this past summer, one would think there would be more requests for flaring.

There are four possibilities:
a) the amended North Dakota on flaring, especially the "60%" rule really made a difference;
b) takeaway capacity for natural gas has improved significantly;
c) operators are choking back oil production for a number of reason; or
d) a combination of all three.
I doubt takeaway capacity has increased that much in the past two months, or even since the law was amended.

I have some hunches but would be interested if anyone has any insight on this. Thank you.

Peak Oil? What Peak Oil? A Privileged Planet And It's Crying Time Again

Rigzone/Reuters is reporting:
Statoil's announcement this week of a major oil find off Canada's Atlantic coast offers a refreshing reminder that new technology and high prices are helping uncover new oil supplies far beyond U.S. shale and the Alberta oil sands.
Statoil says its discovery in the deep-sea Bay du Nord may contain up to 600 million barrels of recoverable oil, making it the third-largest find in Atlantic Canada and rejuvenating hope for an offshore region that was forecast to be in decline for the next several decades.
Situated in an area known as the Flemish Pass basin, 500 kilometres (300 miles) off the coast of Newfoundland and Labrador, the discovery opens up a new frontier, one that oil majors Chevron and Royal Dutch Shell are also poised to probe.
Peak oil? What peak oil? As regular readers know, The Oil Drum, a "peak oil" blog, threw in the towel this summer. It's last live post was this past week; the archives are still available to read.

A Note To The Granddaughters

I am reading a most fascinating book: A Privileged Planet: How Our Place in the Cosmos is Designed for Discovery, by Guillermo Gonzalez and Jay Richards, c. 2004. The book talks about climate change and fossil fuels. Absolutely fascinating. I did not bring the copy with me this morning so I can't provide any direct quotes, but will do so at a later date. Suffice to say Richard Dawkins won't be recommending this book. I doubt he will even read it. If he does, I can already hear the arguments, but he would be missing the point.


How slow is the news today -- at least the news out of Washington? It can't get much worse than this -- is reporting that the White House will be cut to skeleton staff (just in time for Halloween) if there's a government shutdown -- and what's so bad about that, she asked.

Well, it's crying time again:

Global Freezing: Deliveries Of The Hard Copy UN Report On Global Warming Will Be Delayed

What a great way to start the weekend. I only have a few minutes this morning, and then I will be off to soccer and swimming. It's a busy, busy day.

But, what a great way to start the weekend.

Sixteen feet of snow possible on Mt Rainier over next four days. Sixteen feet. And this is still September. The climatologists were correct. We're entering an extended period of global cooling freezing.

And it gets better: winter arrived in Oregon a month early.
Crater Lake, Oregon, received “a record-smashing 8 inches (20.3 cm) of snow in 24 hours” Tuesday into Wednesday, the National Weather Service reported.
More than one month ahead of schedule, the frosty blanket made its earliest appearance since 1986, when snow fell a week earlier on Sept. 18. Before that, the earliest appearance of a winter wonderland at Crater Lake was Sept. 24, 1948.
Now the irony. Because of the snow the USPS announced that deliveries of the hard copy of the UN study on global warming will be delayed in some areas of Oregon.

Out Of Time

I have run out of time to complete all that needs to be written.

I will clean up the posts from today sometime over the weekend.

This was a most incredible day.

If anyone had any doubts about the future of the Bakken, hopefully October's NDIC hearing dockets helps clear things up. Case 21145 was just one of many very, very interesting examples.

Case 21145:
Application of EOG Resources, Inc. for an order authorizing the drilling, completing and producing of a total of sixteen wells on an existing 1280-acre spacing unit described as Sections 30 and 31, T.152N., R.94W.; a total of thirty-four wells on an existing 1440-acre spacing unit described as all of Sections 13, 24 and 25, less Lots 1-4 in each section, T.151N., R.95W.; a total of thirty-four wells on an existing 1920-acre spacing unit described as Sections 25 and 36, T.152N., R.95W. and Section 1, T.151N., R.95W.; and a total of thirty-four wells on an existing 2560-acre spacing unit described as Sections 6, 7, 18 and 19, T.151N., R.94W., Clarks Creek-Bakken Pool,McKenzie County, ND, eliminating ....
In case that's hard to read:
  • 16 wells on an existing 1280-acre unit;
  • 34 wells on an existing 1440-acre spacing unit;
  • 34 wells on an existing 1920-acre unit; and,
  • 34 wells on an exsiting 2560-acre unit.
Highlights of the October agenda can be found here.

Again, a lot of stuff from today needs to be cleaned up; I will try to find time on the weekend. I assume there are a lot of typographical errors.

If you see errors, let me know. Please feel free to send comments, but I won't get to them until sometime this weekend.

Highlights Of The October NDIC Hearing Dockets

The complete summary of the October agenda is here. The highlights follow:

To begin with, the norm in the Bakken is now 10+ wells in 1280-acre units:
  • 21024: KOG, Twin Buttes-Bakken, establish two new 1280-acre units; 10 wells in each, Dunn
  • 21025: KOG, South Fork-Bakken, establish two new 1280-acre units; 10 wells in each, Dunn
  • 21026: KOG, Heart Butte-Bakken, establish two new 1280-acre units; 10 wells in each, Dunn
But others are drilling even more than 10 wells on a 1280-acre unit in the Bakken:
  • 21036: Oasis, Alkali Creek-Bakken, 15 wells on some or all of the 1280-acre units;
  • 21037: Oasis, Cow Creek-Bakken, 12 wells on some or all of the 1280-acre units; Williams
  • 21038: Oasis, Enget Lake-Bakken, 15 wells on some or all of the 1280-acre units; Mountrail
  • 21039: Oasis, Sorkness-Bakken, 15 wells on some or all of the 1280-acre units; Mountrail
  • 21040: Oasis, Tyrone-Bakken, 15 wells on some or all of the 1280-acre units; Williams
  • 21041: Oasis, Viking-Bakken, 15 wells on some or all of the 1280-acre units; Burke
Overlapping units are becoming the norm to capture otherwise "orphaned" oil:
  • 21043: MRO, Reunion Bay and the Big Bend-Bakken; establish 5 overlapping 2560-acre units; 1+ wells; Mountrail, McKenzie, and Dunn
  • 21159: XTO, Grinnell-Bakken, establish 9 overlapping 2560-acre units; 1 well each; McKenzie, Williams
  • 21160: XTO, Siverston-Bakken, establish 23 overlapping 2560-acre units; 1 well each; McKenzie
Whiting continues to explore the Red River formation:
  • 21047: Whiting, Beach-Red River, establish a 640-acre unit; 1+ hz well; Golden Valley
  • 21048: Whiting, Delhi-Red River, establish a 640-acre unit; 1+ hz well; Golden Valley
  • 20149: Whiting, Camel Hump-Red Rivers; establish a 240-acre unit, one vertical well; establish a 560-acre unit; a horizontal well; establish a 320-acre unit one hz well; establish 2 480-acre units; drill a second vertical well on a 320-acre unit, Golden Valley
Just as interesting: what was not in the agenda:
  • there were almost no requests for to allow flaring for maximum production
  • there were very few cases by one operator to revoke a permit of another operator (only two, I think)
  • likewise, there were few cases involving risk penalty issues
Look at all the pooling cases for Oasis

Petro-Hunt is very, very busy; and Stockyard Creek keeps getting more wells:
  • 21069: Petro-Hunt, Stockyard Creek-Bakken, 6 wells on a 640-acre unit, Williams
  • 21070: Petro-Hunt, Powers Lake-Bakken, 7 wells on a 1280-acre unit; Mountrail
  • 21071: Petro-Hunt, North Tioga-Bakken, 7 wells on 12 1280-acre units; Burke
  • 21072: Petro-Hunt, East Tioga-Bakken, 7 wells on 9 1280-acre units: Burke
KOG is very, very active:
  • 21135: KOG, Truax-Bakken, 14 wells on 4 1280-acre units; 8 wells on 10 1280-acre units; 6 wells on 7 2560-acre units, McKenzie, Williams
  • 21136: KOG, Eightmile-Bakken, 10 wells on a 1280-acre units; McKenzie, Williams
CLR is not slowing down -- I might do the math later:
  • 21148: CLR, Long Creek-Bakken, create an overlapping 2560-acre unit; 28 wells on that one 2560-acre unit; 14 wells on each existing 1280-acre unit within Zones III and IV; 14 wells on each exisitng 1600-acre unit in Zone V, McKenzie, Williams
  • 21149: CLR, Banks-Bakken, 14 wells on each existing 1280-acre unit within Zones III, IV, V, VI, VII, VIII, IX, X, and XI; 28 wells on each existing 2560-acre unit within Zones XIII, XIV, XV, and XVI, McKenzie, Williams
  • 21150: CLR, Brooklyn-Bakken, 14 wells on each existing 1280-acre unit within Zone 1 and II; 24 wells on each existing 2560-acre unit within Zones III and IV, Williams
  • 21151: CLR, Crazy Man Creek-Bakken, 14 wells on each existing 1280-acre unit within Zones I, II, III, and IV; 14 wells on each existing 1600-acre unit within Zone V; 28 wells on each existing 2560-acre unit within Zone VI; and 28 wells on each existing 2880-acre unit within Zone VII, McKenzie, Williams
Zenergy remains active:
  • 21162: Zenergy, Cow Creek-Bakken, 12 wells on an existing 1280-acre unit; Williams
  • 21163: Zenergy, Rawson-Bakken, 12 wells on an existing 1280-acre unit, McKenzie
  • 21164: Zenergy, North Tobacco Garden-Bakken, 16 wells on each existing 1280-acre units, McKenzie
  • 21165: Zenergy, Camp-Bakken, 12 wells on an existing 1280-acre unit, McKenzie
  • 21166: Zenergy, Indian Hill-Bakken, 12 wells on an existing 1280-acre unit; McKenzie
  • 21167: Zenergy, Lake Trenton-Bakken, 12 wells on an existing 1280-acre unit, Williams
  • 21168: Zenergy, Rosebud-Bakken, 12 wells on each existing 1280-acre unit, 2 units; Williams
  • 21169: Zenergy, Trenton-Bakken, 12 wells on an existing 1280-acre unit; McKenzie, Williams
If I am reading this correctly, CLR is looking to use EOR on two established and temporarily abandoned Tyler wells:
  • 21197: CRL, Tracy Mountain Field, EOR, into the Tracy Mountrain-Tyler Unit of the Jiggs 32-16 well (#13396) (Billings); spud 7/92; t8/92; cum 184K 7/13; status: TA; last produced 10/09; TA date 4/1/13; Tyler formation
  • 21198: CRL, Tracy Mountain Field, EOR, into the Tracy Mountrain-Tyler Unit of the Tracy Mountain Unit 1-16 well (#15936), Billings; spud 4/06; t178; cum 18K 7/13; status: TA; last produced 12/08; TA date 9/6/12; Tyler formation
Another example of increased density wells:
  • 21207: EOG, Parshall-Bakken, 7 wells on an existing 640-acre spacing unit, Mountrail

Sixteen (16) New Permits -- The Williston Basin, North Dakota, USA

Active rigs: 184 (steady)

Sixteen (16) new permits --
  • Operators: Newfield (9),  Enerplus (2), Enduro (3), Oasis, Slawson,
  • Fields: Big Bend (Mountrail), Pembroke (McKenzie), Spotted Horn (McKenzie), Mouse River Park (Renville), Camp (McKenzie), South Tobacco Garden (McKenzie)
  • Comments: It is a pleasant surprise to see so many Newfield wells; regular readers know the history of Newfield in the Bakken; It is also nice to see Slawson active
Wells coming off the confidential list were posted earlier; see sidebar at the right.

This was an incredibly big day week for the Bakken: a) double-digit number of new permits many days this week; and, b) then a most incredible agenda for the October NDIC hearing dockets.

Staggering

I don't recall if I posted it on the blog or not, but once upon a time someone asked me if they would ever see more than one well per drilling unit in Brooklyn oil field.

In the October NDIC hearing docket:
  • 21150: CLR, Brooklyn-Bakken, 14 wells on each existing 1280-acre unit within Zone 1 and II; 24 wells on each existing 2560-acre unit within Zones III and IV, Williams.
The Brooklyn-Bakken is an "okay" field in the Bakken but it would not be considered one of the best locations in the Bakken. I used to say that one would see 14 wells in the better Bakken, and 4 wells elsewhere.

I will have to recalibrate.

Bakken Fatigue?

A reader asked whether we might be seeing "Bakken fatigue" based on a couple of recent headlines. I provided a very, very lengthy answer (which I might post on the blog sometime this weekend).

I should have read my mail first, before writing that long post.

A reader just alerted me that the hearing dockets were out for October, and directed me to look at Case 21145:
Application of EOG Resources, Inc. for an order authorizing the drilling, completing and producing of a total of sixteen wells on an existing 1280-acre spacing unit described as Sections 30 and 31, T.152N., R.94W.; a total of thirty-four wells on an existing 1440-acre spacing unit described as all of Sections 13, 24 and 25, less Lots 1-4 in each section, T.151N., R.95W.; a total of thirty-four wells on an existing 1920-acre spacing unit described as Sections 25 and 36, T.152N., R.95W. and Section 1, T.151N., R.95W.; and a total of thirty-four wells on an existing 2560-acre spacing unit described as Sections 6, 7, 18 and 19, T.151N., R.94W., Clarks Creek-Bakken Pool,McKenzie County, ND, eliminating ....
In case that's hard to read:
  • 16 wells on an existing 1280-acre unit;
  • 34 wells on an existing 1440-acre spacing unit;
  • 34 wells on an existing 1920-acre unit; and,
  • 34 wells on an exsiting 2560-acre unit.
Bakken fatigue? Only for the roughnecks.

Regular readers know the significance of Clarks Creek and EOG.

This is what sections 13 - 24 - 25 in 151-95 look like now:


Zooming in on the wells/permits already there:


Imagine 34 wells in this spacing unit.
