May 3, 2015: a reader noted this --
Two more interesting cases. Ff you look closer. 23969, and 23970 are for BR for spacing in two fields in Stark county. The interesting thing: BR does not yet have any wells in either if these fields. So apparently they will be drilling in these fields.
I talked to a Denbury company hand last year who said Denbury was going to start drilling around Dickinson this year. I wonder if it will actually be a Denbury-BR partnership, possibly including Armstrong Operating, as Denbury and Armstrong do have wells in these two fields. It will be interesting to watch.The reader is correct; there are not BR wells in either field. BR had a permit in Eland field some years ago but it was canceled. A longer time ago, Conoco (which bought BR) had a dry well in Eland. So, BR has no wells in Eland-Bakken. That field is pretty much a Denbury field with some Wesco wells and some Armstrong wells. Armstrong has two active oil wells in Versippi (old wells) and one SWD well in same field. Note: I took this information from the NDIC website. I often make mistakes; if this information is important to you, go to the source.
Full summary here but these are the cases that caught me eye. In addition, there are some interesting set-back requests, requests for flaring waivers, etc.
