Interesting, interesting things going on with MRO in the Bailey oil field.

I've just updated all the Bailey oil field wells through 2015. Absolutely amazing.

For newbies:
  • MRO has a huge re-frack program going on in the Bailey oil field. It's been going on for quite some time
  • Bailey oil field and MRO: some great wells but the real story is the re-fracks
  • to drill/complete a well on a new pad, greenfield, in the Bakken: in excess of $10 million 
  • to drill/complete a new well on an existing pad, in the Bakken: $6 million, maybe more
  • to re-frack an old well: $4 million, maybe less;
  • MRO often uses a mediocre amount of proppant in a re-frack;
  • re-fracking a new well in the Bakken: 90%+ chance that it will successful;
  • re-fracking: pretty much results in a new well;
  • re-fracking: impact on neighboring wells varies from field to field
Look at this. In Bailey oil field, these great wells are now off-line (when I say "now," remember: the paperwork lags what is going on in the field; the most recent data over at the NDIC is from 12/18):
  • 30550. 
  • 29384.
  • 29383.  
  • 29382.
  • 29381.
  • 28704.
  • 28459.
  • 28360.
  • 28358.
  • 28111.
  • 25114. 
  • 24973.
  • 24075. 
  • 23980.
  • 22658.
  • 22451.
  • 22333. See this post.
In the ten years blogging about the Bakken, I have never seen this before. I'm sure it's happened before and perhaps it happened earlier in the Bailey but for me it's a new phenomenon.
