Monster Wells in the Williston Basin, North Dakota, USA

Note, as of October 31, 2018, no more Bakken wells will be added to this page. New "monster Bakken wells" will be linked at "third generation wells."

Note, August 27, 2017: due to the number of wells reporting cumulative production of 500,000 bbls of crude oil, future wells to make the "monster well" page will require 750,000 bbls. Of course, there will be exceptions.

Note: this page has been completely revamped; some of the "older" comments reference the original "Monster Well" page. [Memo to self: start with 19220; second time through, start with 16119. Also check #16435 later. First Bakken ~15525 (maybe earlier; working backwards, no Bakken wells from 15525 all the way back to 15455).]

Monster wells based on cumulative production, not IPs.

  • 22486, 2,421, EOG, Hawkeye 100-2501H, Clarks Creek (see stand-alone post); 3-section spacing (1,920 acres); will this be a long lateral (9,000 feet) or a much-talked-about-seldom-seen-super-long lateral (14,000 feet)? I'm betting the latter. If accurate, a huge "thank you" to a reader. This well is NORTHEAST of Watford City. [Turned out to be 25,101 feet long. Yes, a super-long lateral, almost 3 sections long.] Did Lynn Helms misspeak or was he misquoted in The Bismarck Tribune when he said there was a gusher NORTHWEST of Watford City?
