Sunday, October 8, 2017: update of three wells.
This is really, really cool. Trying to connect all the dots, I thought there was one dot missing, but they all connect.
In the original post on the Antelope Field, I wrote:
Antelope Field is an irregularly-shaped rectangular field, almost entirely within the reservation, on the east end of the northeast McKenzie County sweet spot in the Bakken. It is about two townships in size. It is of interest due to the fact that EOG plans to place 6 wells on a 320-acre spacing unit in this field.Three screen shots.
It is interesting how things work out: in this immediate area, there are only three sections with 320-acre spacing: section 32-152-94; section 17-151-94; and section 20-15-94. When you expand the NDIC GIS map, you can find a few more such spacing units in: section 16-152-94; section 24-151-92; section 20-152-93, and you have to expand to almost the entire map to see additional such units: 320-acre drilling units in the Bakken are few and far between. It looks like most of them are inside the reservation. This puts things into perspective.
The first screen shot shows the 320-acre spacing units in the Antelope field:
The second screen shot shows four adjacent 320-acre spacing units in the area of interest:
The last screen shot shows the three wells being drilled on one of those 320-acre drilling units:
So, I suppose those are EOG wells? Nope.
The original applications were from Slawson.

- 21387, drl, White Butte Oil Operations, LLC, Panzer 4-20MLH, original permit for a Three Forks well but name change suggesting a middle Bakken well; in January, 2014, along with the name change (from TF to middle Bakken), Slawson also requested a revision "to allow for an additional lateral, would submit a revised plan for a single lateral plan"; in July, 2014, the thee Panzer wells were transferred to White Butte Oil from Slawson; the business address for Slawson and White Butte were identical, 1675 Broadway, Suite 1600, Denver, CO.; and that connects the last dot.
