June 3, 2020: production data update, see below: see this update --
- 35915, SI/A, CLR, Wahpeton 17-16H, Banks, t--; cum 107K in 2.5 months;
December 11, 2016: production of these wells updated; see below; five wells now IA/AB/TA.

September 11, 2013: from Mike Filloon --
The most important is the Wahpeton Pad. Continental chose the important location to drill a total of 32 wells from the middle Bakken to the 3rd bench. Since this was the first 160-acre pilot project, it very well could be the best area overall for pad drilling.
The Wahpeton wells are sited in section 16, and run north to south, ending in section 21. This page is updated periodically, last update, July 12, 2020.

Meanwhile, the "Charlotte" wells sited in either section 22 or 27-152-99, Banks, but all probably drilling 22/15-152-99:
- 19918, 496, Charlotte 1-22H, middle Bakken, SWSE 22-152-99; Banks, 30 stages; 2.5 million lbs; t6/11; cum 360K 4/20; total depth: 21,090 feet;

By the way, look at #23664, Charlotte 3-22H, still confidential, but production runs for first month:

What do you notice? Yes, it was hooked up to a natural gas pipeline almost immediately. As the well density increases, the natural gas flaring will take care of itself. Already we are starting to see this happen on a larger scale. In the most recent Director's Cut:
Additions to gathering and processing capacity are helping with the percentage of gas flared dropping to 29%. The historical high was 36% in September 2011.With more wells/month being drilled; more production/well; to see a downward trend this early in the boom speaks volumes about a non-issue.
And, then, of course, to the east, in the next spacing unit to the east are the very good Chicago/Syracuse wells.
