Twenty-Three (23) New Permits -- The Williston Basin, North Dakota, USA; CLR With Permits For 21 New Wells In One Section; Petro-Hunt To Report A Nice Well In Clear Creek Friday

Active rigs:

Active Rigs190186203173104

Twenty-three (23) new permits --
  • Operators: CLR (14), Slawson (3), Hess (2), BR (2), OXY USA, Peregrine Petroleum Partners
  • Fields: Big Bend (Mountrail), Alkali Creek (Mountrail), Cherry Creek (McKenzie), Willmen (Dunn), Corral Creek (Dunn), Covered Bridge (McKenzie)
  • Comments: All fourteen (14) CLR permits will be on the same pad (or very nearly same pad) in SENE 6-153-93; these are Jersey and Jersey Federal permits that appear to replace the Linbeck permits that were canceled a few days ago; there were seven additional Jersey Federal permits at that time; 7 then + 14 now = 21 wells on that one pad (or closely neighboring pads) [Disclaimer: I did this quickly and have not had a chance to confirm this; this may be all wrong. I will check it later. If it is accurate, it makes me think that regardless of how the CLR Atlanta wells have turned out, CLR is pressing ahead with targeting all Bakken formations with multiple horizontals from one pad. These would be the first wells in this section, and perhaps the first wells in this drilling unit, depending on where the horizontals go; probably under the water.]  
  • Comments: between 1990 and 1993 (inclusive), Peregrine drilled five (5) Bakken wells, all very short horizontal wells in the far south-central/west McKenzie County (currently not much activity); the are all still active and producing, albeit very, very little; this is the company's first permit in North Dakota since 1993
Wells coming off the confidential list today were posted earlier; see sidebar at the right.

Unimportant in the light of all the CLR activity above, but for archival purposes, the following permit was canceled:
  • 26561, PNC, CLR, Linbeck 14-6H1, Alkali Creek,
About twenty (20) wells, mostly in Renville County, a couple in Bottineau County, were trasnferred from Williston Hunter to Enduro Operating; probably Spearfish wells.

  • 24054, 1,528, Petro-Hunt, Wisness 152-96-33C-28-5H, Clear Creek, t1/14; cum 18K 1/14;
