Random Update On A Whiting Well In Pronghorn Prospect, Southwest North Dakota -- October 25, 2014

It seems the Pronghorn prospect in southwest North Dakota has very mixed results. Some wells seem to be very, very good; others not quite so good. It looks like Whiting is going to be reporting some nice wells in this area. This is one example:

US Having Coolest Year On Record: 2014

Real Science is reporting:
The percentage of US HCN stations to reach 90 degrees was the smallest on record this year, with four of the five coolest years occurring above 350 PPM CO2. The most widespread heat occurred in 1931, when more than 98% of stations were over 90 degrees.

  1. Hello Bruce! In the Park there 2 rigs, from what I see on the NDIC map. Sections 12, 13, and two wells recently completed, not sure if they are even fracked yet. Plus, 2 more are being drilled in those sections. Also, section 15, 3 more are being drilled. Plus, about a handful more in the Park area need to still be drilled. I wonder what technology Whiting is using? Cemented liner? And I wonder if I will see any "halo" effect on the older wells in section 13 and 15. I think if Whiting is using there better technology, I agree with you, I bet the wells be nice. I think they will be better then the older wells. I am looking forward to seeing the results when all of these come off the confidential list next year, and see if any halo effect is produced.

    1. I noted that well, and several others, when I was updating Park Field:

      Whiting will report some nice wells, and it will be interesting to get answers to the questions you've asked.
