Case, not a permit:
  • 28515, MRO, McGregory Buttes, i) 23 wells on a 2560-acre unit; sections 14/15/22/23-147-94; ii) confirm spacing; iii) address the lease status of the Little Missouri Riverbed in said sections; Dunn County;
  • 2560/23 = 111-acre spacing, except that these wells will be targeting at least two different formations;
Wells currently in that drilling unit, or related unit:
  • 37621, scout ticket does not exist, , conf, MRO, Sophia USA 11-14TFH, McGregory Buttes,
  • 24316, 394, MRO, Hopkins USA 15-2H, McGregory Buttes, t3/13; cum 145K 4/20;
  • 24315, conf, MRO, Hopkins USA 15-11TFH, McGregory Buttes,
  • 24314, conf, MRO, Hopkins USA 15-4H, McGregory Buttes,


  1. Not saying this negatively, but I assume the spacing will be twenty three wells with half going up and half going down will look at the picture when it posts in the system.

    1. Absolutely, agree with you completely, if one did not see the map. I will post the graphics later, but I'm pretty sure all wells will be sited to the north and the horizontals will run to the north. This is 2x2 spacing and the two sections to the south are pretty much under the river. Again, I could be wrong. Don't quote me on this, but I will have more to say once the graphics are posted. Graphics won't be posted until late this evening or tomorrow -- taking Sophia out kayaking this afternoon/early evening.
