March, 2017, NDIC Dockets Have Been Posted

The Bakken never ceases to amaze me. There is a lot packed into this page. In fact, there's even a surprise, but that story is a) too long to fit on this page; and, b) too good a story to be buried here -- it needs its own stand-alone post. I will post that story later.

The full March, 2017, NDIC dockets are posted here.

Comments and Disclaimer

To the best of my knowledge this was the first ad-free, password-free blog that told mineral owners that if they had one well in the Bakken, they would eventually have four wells, probably 8 wells, and possibly many more than that before this was all over. That was posted back in 2009.

Now why would I bring that up? Take a look at case #25695 below -- Abraxas, 16 wells on an existing 1280-acre unit: sections 17/20-150-96. There are already nine (9) horizontal wells in those two sections (if one includes the section line well) plus an old vertical well. Someone might have 26 producing wells in this area. Graphic at the bottom of this post.

Disclaimer: as usual this is done very quickly and using shorthand for my benefit. There will be factual and typographical errors on this page. Do not quote me on any of this. It's for my personal use to help me better understand the Bakken. Do not read it. If you do happen to read it, do not make any investment, financial, job, relationship, or travel plans based on anything you read here or think you may have read here. If this stuff is important to you, and I doubt that it is, but if it is, go to the source.
