Original Post 
A Swedish/Danish family that retains a few mineral acres in the Bakken, alerted me to this note:
  • Zavanna will add three (3) middle Bakken wells and three (3) TF wells to #20085 in Long Creek. 
The reader suggests I look at the homepage:; and,

Here's an update of the existing well:
  • 20085, 825, Zavanna, Nelson 3-10 1H, 35 stages; 3.8 million lbs; t8/12; cum 170K 9/13; 
Long Creek is located just to the west of Banks and Truax, a sweet spot in the Bakken. This particular well is located just south of Stockyard Creek, one of the most active and better fields in the Bakken.

For newbies, take a look at that well. It's a non-descript well, a well that would not have caught anyone's attention when the IP was reported (a mediocre 825) and here it is about a year later, and the well has produced close to 200 boe.

The natural gas processing plants in the area are simply inadequate to handle all the production.

From the GIS map server, this is what the area looks like right now, in three screen shots:

First, the two new wells next to the existing well:

Second, six new wells to the west of the existing well noted above:

Finally, zooming out to provide a perspective of the entire area. In this screenshot, the six-well pad is not identifiable as a six-well pad; only #26687 shows up:
