Wells coming off the confidential list Wednesday: None.
Six new permits:
- Operators: Hess (4), Enerplus (2)
Fields: Blue Buttes (McKenzie), Heart Butte (Dunn)
There were almost 30 wells that came off the confidential list. Other than the three reported earlier today, all the rest (excluding one SWD permit) were still listed as LOC. The state has given operators two years (instead of the usual one year) to spud/complete (I forget which) a well once a permit is granted.Oasis renewed one permit, a Kapusta permit in Mountrail County.
Statoil canceled two permits, two Richard permits in McKenzie County. [Update: this was on the daily activity report, but was in fact wrong. These were two DUCs. Corrected report on the August 24, 2016, daily activity report.]
