Closer Look At Four Stand-Up 1280-Acre Drilling Units Proposed By Hess For 48 Horizontal Wells -- February 24, 2019

From the March, 2019, NDIC hearing dockets, this single case (again, this is a case, not a permit):
  • 27361, Hess, Tioga-Bakken, establish four stand-up 1280-acre units (5/8; 6/7; 17/20; and 18/19-158-94); 12 wells in each; 48 wells total; Mountrail
The graphic:

Four stand-up 1280-acre units:
  • 12 wells in each of these units
So, pop quiz: what do you notice about these four 1280-acre units? Or what do these four units have in common? Later, the answer: not one of the four 1280-acre units has an active Bakken horizontal well. Generally we see an initial "exploratory" well before jumping into 12 wells for a drilling unit.

By the way, on another note, #345 (in the southwest drilling unit highlighted above) is a monster Madison well:
  • 345, 504/PNA, Hess, Tioga-Madison Unit L-144, Tioga, t8/53; cum 2.1 million bbls; 5/07; it produced oil from 1953 to 2007 (54 years) 
How To De-Clutter

Apparently there's a woman out there making millions "teaching" folks how to "tidy up."

Her manta, "if it doesn't give you joy, throw it out."

Marie Kondo. No link. Her story everywhere.

We've carried this balalaika around for two decades. Our older daughter brought it back from Russia back in 2000 or thereabouts. Somehow it ended up in our possession. I don't know if our daughter gave it to us, or somehow we knew it would be thrown out or lost forever if we didn't hold on to it.

But it just ended up on the floor, leaning against the wall, in any room, always underfoot. We never knew what to do with it. Every year it got closer (literally and figuratively) to the recycling center.

The other day I finally figured out what to do with it. I couldn't part with it. It probably has some "sentimental" value for someone.

I hung it on the wall. Yes, it gives me joy and I couldn't part with it.

My wife hasn't noticed it yet.
