For some reason I forgot to post top stories of the week over the weekend. I will do that now, even though it will include some posts from today and yesterday.
Last week winter storm Stella rolled into the northeast US; for the most part it appears to have been over-hyped, at least as far the three major urban centers go: Boston; NYC; and, Washington, DC.
There were many, many posts on Whiting's incredible Rolla Federal wells, but I only linked one post below. I track the Rolla Federal wells here.
Number of active rigs jumps to 50 (32 last year at same time; represents a 56% increase year-over-year)
Completion data for 3Q16 and 4Q16 wells updated
Whiting reporting some huge Rolla Federal wells, including 52K/first month of production
Update on an Oasis Rolfson well; nice results
Update of a very nice Whiting Flatland Federal well
Another well with nice post-shut-in production jump
