This is how much better the wells are getting in the Bakken.
For newbies, WPX is drilling in one of the best spots in the Bakken; outstanding wells. How much it has to do with luck (of location) vs expertise is in the eye of the beholder, but it is what it is. But compare #27070 initial production when it was drilled back in 2014 when the Bakken boom was reaching its stride (maybe we should talk about that again some day). #27070 is a great well by any standards.
But then look how much better #30051 is: drilling in the very same immediate location. These wells are less than 0.48 miles apart, less than 2,500 feet apart, and there are six wells packed together in that half-mile. I don't see any negative parent-child interference. I would argue that neighboring wells actually help older wells in this area.
