Whiting's Skaar Federal Wells

Either on the same pad as the Skaar Federal wells, or right next to it, another 3-well pad (I believe all five wells on same pad, but could be wrong; Google map suggests all five on same pad)  (note the IPs):
  • 22386, 4,456, Whiting, Skaar Federal 41-3-1H, Twin Valley, 30 stages; 3.0 million lbs; Middle Bakken "C" facies; gas averaged 484 units with spikes to 7,000 units, t6/13; cum 352K 3/16;
  • 22387, 4,460, Whiting, Skaar Federal 41-3-2H, Twin Valley, 30 stages; 3.1 million lbs; Middle Bakken "C" facies; background gas averaged only 265 units, but spiked to 4,000 units; t6/13; cum 351K 3/16;
  • 22388, 4,956, Whiting, Skaar Federal 41-3-3H, 30 stages; 3.1 million lbs, Middle Bakken "C" facies; t6/13; cum 397K 3/16;
  • 27283, 4,523, Whiting, Skaar Federal 41-3TFHU, t6/14; cum 291K 3/16;
  • 27284, 4,934, Whiting, Skaar Federal 41-3TFH, t6/14; cum 356K 3/16;
Note how much yet needs to be done in this area:


  1. Speaking of big wells for CLR. Remember the Whitman in the Oakdale field? Part of the Hawkinson Whitman Eco pad a few years ago. Looks like CLR got approval to either extend or replace the Whitman TF1 well that was part of the 2560 spacing unit. Looks like future plans include drilling the Whitman 1280 out to 14 wells including the eco pad wells. See order #24085 and case #21756. Note the updated layout for the 14 wells on the new plan. Do you suppose this is one of those areas I have heard mentioned that could be profitable at $25.00 oil?

    1. I certainly do remember the Whitman wells. Coincidentally I updated them last night.
