Most interesting: a Whiting permit reinstated --
I didn't think about it much at the time, but then decided to see where it was located and take a look at the neighboring wells. Wow, this location is about as remote as one can get in North Dakota. It's just south of the river, far west McKenzie County, near Montana. There are very, very few wells in the area and the only well in the immediate area is this one:
- #29504, an Oakland permit in section 29-151-103, McKenzie County
- 20185, 607, Whiting, Oakland 151-103-29B-22-1H, Glass Bluff, t4/12; cum 175K 10/19;

By all criteria, particularly by today's standards, this is a fairly mediocre well at best, and now Whiting, the company that has been setting all-time records for canceling permits, has a permit in this immediate area re-instated. Makes absolutely no sense to me. So, we'll see.
