Back in early 2010, I posted this bit of trivia:
The most successful well to date in North Dakota sits in the Charlson: file #16059, the USA 2D-3-1H, a Petro-Hunt, LLC, well that was spudded in October, 2006. To date, it has produced 915,000 barrels of oil. That well targeted the Three Forks Sanish. [At $60/barrel = almost $55 million in about 3 years]. UPDATE: USA 2D-3-1H hit a record this past June, 2010: one million bbls of oil cumulative.I'm not exactly sure what that "most successful well to date" was based on. Other wells in North Dakota have out-produced #16059. Perhaps I meant the "most successful Bakken well to date." If that's what I meant, I doubt that is still true. Certainly other Bakken wells have out-produced this well (maybe I will check later).
Whatever. It's been a great well. It was a very, very short lateral, and is still the only horizontal in that section. That won't last long: #36341 in that section is on the confidential list. Can't wait to see how that one plays out. It looks like it will be another short lateral that will parallel #16059 but in the opposite direction. Testing "halo effect"? [Later, bummer: #36341 was PNC'd 8/1/2019.]
- 16059, 729, Petro-Hunt, USA 2D-3-1H, Charlson field, t10/06; cum 1.727438 million bbls 5/19; still producing 4,000 bbls/month; it appears this well was never fracked (based on two corroborative forms in the file report); recent production:
