Major Permit Numbering Problem Over At NDIC -- August 19, 2015


August 27, 2015: the error has been corrected

August 24, 2015: It appears the NDIC permit numbering error as noted below has been cleared up. As expected, the duplicate permit numbers remain EOG Austin wells in Parshall oil field, and the CLR Corsican permits in the same field (duplicate permit numbers) on the GIS map server have simply disappeared.

Original Post 

In today's daily activity report, eight EOG permits have the same numbers (#31821 - #31828) as CLR Corsican Federal permits that were issued Monday (August 17, 2015) -- based on scout tickets; they were never in a daily activity report. It will be remembered that NDIC said there were no permits issued on Friday, August 14, 2015, despite the fact that the scout ticket sequence suggested thirteen (13) permits had been issued. Five of those permits showed up on Monday, but the eight CLR Corsican Federal permits have not shown up on a daily activity report yet.

However, on the GIS map server, the CLR Corsican Federal permits show up (#31821 - #31828, inclusive) but on the scout tickets, they are now EOG Austin permits.

My hunch is that the CLR Corsican Federal permits, #31821 - #31828, will disappear and will re-appear with new numbers.

This will not affect readers in general, but it will cause confusion among those of us who track permit numbers.

Bottom line: right now, there are duplicates of these permit numbers, #31821 - #31828 (8 permits). On the daily activity report for August 19, 2015, they show up as EOG Austin permits; on the GIS map server, they show up as Corsican Federal permits. The EOG Austin permits are in the Parshall oil field; the Corsican Federal permits are also in the Sanish oil field.

In addition, not seen before, the daily activity report for today for new permits has a break in permit numbers. There are eight permits, #31821 - #31828, inclusive; then a break in sequence, and then three more permits, #31834 - #31836, inclusive.

The individual normally responsible for inputting new permits must be on vacation.

Note: I often make mistakes and I may be misreading something here. Time will tell. If this information is important to you, go to the source. Do not trust my data.
