I know that Whiting likes to drill the surface on one well, move to the next, drill the surface, then move back to the first well and drill the intermediate. Then they move to the second and drill the intermediate. Sometimes they will stay on that well and drill to TD. Then move back and finish the other well. I'm guessing that's what it's showing. They do this because after cementing the casing it takes a little time for the cement to set up enough to continue. This way they don't have to wait for the cement. They just move to the next well.This will help a lot of readers; many of us were not aware that there were two "zones," the surface and the intermediate before the big rig drilled to TD. It makes sense; about the cement casing setting/curing. Much appreciated.
A reader noticed:
Not sure what is going on in Park 12-140N-100W. Wells 28055 and 28056, for last 3 weeks map hasn't changed. 28056 shows 2 laterals, then they stopped, started drilling 28056, then stopped, and are back to drilling 28055 again? Any ideas?I don't have any information. The sundry forms / file report do not shed any light. Both are Three Forks B1 wells. Maybe another reader knows more.
Here's the screen shot of the area today:

2015 Budget Bill
Probably as good an overview as any. I think the blaring headline over at Drudge was a bit misleading. Regardless, I think the GOP did the correct thing with regard to ObamaCare. I like the headline: GOP fully funds ObamaCare. No one can blame the GOP for killing ObamaCare. It will die on the vine on its own.
Speaking of which, even Harry Reid agrees with Schumer:
The third-ranking Senate Democrat noted that just about 5 percent of registered voters in the United States lacked health insurance before the implementation of the law, arguing that to focus on a problem affecting such "a small percentage of the electoral made no political sense."And everyone knew that: only five (5) percent of registered voters in the United States lacked health insurance.
The bad news: the percent has NOT changed, but everyone is paying significantly higher prices for insurance they had prior to ObamaCare.
The fact that Harry Reid says his party has not recovered from "the rollout" (of ObamaCare) suggests he still doesn't get it. ObamaCare is still the law of the land, and will be the law of the land when voters go to the polls in November, 2016. ObamaCare: the gift that keeps on giving.
My hunch: when historians write the biography of President Obama fifty years from now, they will have problems finding a more divisive president in the history of the United States; and, it's very possible, they will have problems finding a president that did more to destroy his own political party than any other US president. Richard Nixon? I don't know; I didn't follow the aftermath all that closely.
