Another High-Proppant EOG Well In The Bakken -- November 18, 2016

Correction: originally I said this was a middle Bakken well; it's a Three Forks B1 well.

Track high-intensity wells here

The average amount of proppant being used by other operators in the Bakken is somewhere between 4 million lbs and 8 million lbs. Anything over 10 million lbs gets my attention. Here's another EOG high-proppant well:

  • 31403, 1,447, EOG, West Clark 117-0136H, Clarks Creek, Three Forks first bench, 36 stages, 27.65 million lbs, t5/16; cum 132K 9/16;

See first comment. The reader was impressed with the amount of natural gas produced (MCF) and was curious about the depths at which this well was drilling.

Many "boe conversion" sites on the net; this is one.  Using that conversion table:
  • 75,000 mcf = 12,934 boe
  • conversion factor appears to be ~ 5,800 at that conversion site
  • in June, 2016, the BOE would be approximately: 32,510 + (72,921/5,800) = 32,510 + 12575 = 45,085 boe for the month of June, 2016
From the completion report:


Stimulation was said to have occurred in the "Bakken" but the drilling report / geologic report said "Three Forks target zone." The application permit was for the "Three Forks B1" within 960-acre drilling unit.

From the drilling/geologic report:
  • spud, December 21, 2015
  • FTD, December 31, 2015
  • TD: 18,217 feet
  • total lateral: 7,269 feet; target total: 7,269 feet (in-zone, 100%)
  • KOP: 10,291 
  • Three Forks entered at 10,774 feet; curve TD was reached at 10,948 feet, below the Samson E1 marker.
  • "A total of 7,269' of lateral was drilled, of which 7,269' occurred in the Three Forks Target, in-zone calculation is 100%.

  1. The Oil is impressive but the MCF is even more impressive I may look at the report latter and see more specifically what depth it is targeting. Nice Well.

    1. That is so "funny." You and several other readers keep reminding me that I keep forgetting about natural gas. Along with the amount of water that needs to be transported away.
