Twenty-Four (24) Wells Coming Off Confidential List; Eight (8) BEXP Wells; Oasis With a Huge Well; Several Nice Wells; Zavanna With a Huge Well East of Williston

Wow, if this is accurate, this is quite amazing. I had missed it. A reader from Denmark led me to it:
  • 19981, 1,003, Zavanna, Gust 2-11 1H, Long Creek oil field, t3/12; cum 107K 7/12; 35 stages; 3.6 million lbs proppant; already over 100,000 bbls of oil in less than six months. It was spud 5/11 - sure took a long time to get it completed, but the wait appeared to be worth it. 
Others in Long Creek:
  • 19974, 740, CLR, Winston 1-12H, Long Creek, t6/11; cum 128K 7/12
  • 20206, 954, CLR, Truman 1-23H, Long Creek, t11/11; cum 102K 7/12
This is a very small field, only 18 sections, east of Williston, north of the river, squeezed in between two other great fields, the Stockyard Creek oil field and the Truax oil field. For such a small field, it is very active. One other well there is on confidential list, and there are two rigs operating: both operated by CLR.

Has anyone noticed? The price of natural gas has quietly melted above $3.38? I had not noticed; that is quite interesting. I assume it is mostly seasonal as we move into autumn and then winter.

A reader sent this to me moments ago, recalling that when he arrived in Williston in early 2011, the sign advertised a starting wage of $11/hour -- a year later: $17/hour and higher to start.

Huge thank you to the reader for sending me this.

RBN Energy: primer on reformulated gasoline.


I have to chuckle. I didn't see much football Sunday, but the little I did see suggests there were a few occasions in which some teams wished the substitute referees were still on the field. Some of the "non-calls" had a significant impact. But we probably won't hear much about that, after all the grief everyone gave the substitute refs.
