The CLR Jersey Wells Are Updated -- July 23, 2019

The CLR Jersey wells are tracked here.
Things are moving along.

Compare the old graphics with the new graphics and one will see all the completed wells and all the wells on confidential status.

 The graphic below will be updated at the link above where the Jersey wells are tracked.


The update production numbers were pretty much in line with what one might expect, but this well was interesting to look at:
  • 28002, 1,359, CLR, Jersey 4-6H2, Alkali Creek, t9/17; cum 321K 5/19;
Look at the nice early production data:

But this is why this is an interesting well. Even though the legal name Jersey 4-6H2 suggests a second bench well it was permitted as a "Three Forks B3" well and, in fact, the permit for #28002 is for "Jersey 4-6H3", (2560-acre spacing). The completion/sundry form says it was a Three Forks B2 well: stimulated/tested, 5/28/2017, with 54 stages, 7.4 million lbs of sand (moderate amount); TVD for the Three Forks stated to be 10,502 feet. The geologist's narrative is not scanned into the file report as of this date (July 23, 2019).

So, let's see if we can find a "true" H3 well.
  • 27998, 1,059, CLR, Jersey 8-6H3, four sections; Alkali Creek, t12/18; cum 236K 5/19; name change and target change to a first bench well (H1);

Permitted as a "Three Forks B3" well. Tested/stimlulated, 6/11/17; 58 stages, 12.4 million lbs of sand (high end); the sundry form says it was the "Three Forks B1" stimulated. TVD for Three Forks target was 10,498 feet. In a sundry form received January 28, 2019, CLR refers to this well as the "Jersey 8-1H1." Again no geologist's narrative. ENSECO says the well name is "Jersey 8-6H3." Ah, here it is, in a sundry form received January 5, 2015, CLR changed the name and the target to Three Forks B1, name change to "Jersey 8-6H1."

Hopefully we will eventually see the geologists' narratives for these wells.

  1. Do you have any data or just an impression of how often wells are radial (spokes on a wheel) or perfectly parallel? E.g. Look at the picuture in your graphic. Top first 4 wells look perfectly parallel, but then there is a fair amount of angle opening up.

    Not just asking about the lake or this pad, but basin wide. I would think ideally you want everything perfectly parallel like in aIR slide decks. But perhaps unit boundaries or pad locations force them to be non ideal.

    1. If you go to the NDIC map and zoom in, you will see that the graphic above is the exception. The operator knows where he wants to put the horizontal -- that's all that matters. The operator is constrained by location of the surface hole due to rivers, lakes, buildings, highways, parks, etc. In this case it was the surface geography that resulted in radial configuration.

    1. You are quite welcome. The Bakken never ceases to amaze me.
