The BR Mathistad Wells In Croff Oil Field

Updates

January 14, 2018: see first comment. A reader has really made some interesting observations, including a great link.
Just a couple notes of interest:

The lateral for the Mathistad 2-35H runs 50 feet above and parallel to the 1-35H. It was originally owned by Continental Resources and was an experimental well partially funded by the State of North Dakota to determine possible communication between nearby laterals most notably the 1-35H. The details are on the attached link:

Also, there looks to be room for another 4 well pad between the new and older wells? 
And, then, of course, my reply: yes, there is more than enough room for another 4-well pad between the older well pads, and then, of course, vertically, additional benches in the Three Forks, possibly.

With regard to communication between formations, see this post: http://themilliondollarway.blogspot.com/2010/02/communication-between-formations.html, February 7, 2010.

Also, this post from May 4, 2011.

Also, a "fracturing question," March 3, 2011.

    1. Thank you very much for taking the time to write. Brings back a lot of memories. I thought I had written about the Mathistad wells back in 2009 and may have even linked that article, or a similar article, but I've long forgotten.

      There are so many story lines in your short reply; much appreciated. I will bring this up to the main body of the blog so it's easily browser-searchable.

      And, yes, there's easily more room for another 4-well pad between the older pads. And then vertically, additional benches in the Three Forks, possibly.
