May 18, 2014: Be sure to read the original post first about this older Bakken well being re-entered and re-completed. Compare total production now with that back in September 2013. Today:
  • 19157, 1,476, EOG, Bear Den 04-20H, Spotted Horn, one-section spacing; t3/13; cum 315K 3/19; look at the huge jump in production after a re-completion:

Original Post 
 
This morning I posted a random note about wells that are re-entered and wells that are being re-completed.

Kent added another one:
  • 19157, 1,476, EOG, Bear Den 04-20H, Spotted Horn, one-section spacing; t3/13; cum 302K 5/18 (will be updated above);
Look the production during the period noted below, #19157:

Before talking about this well, here are screen shots of the NDIC GIS map of the area where this well is drilled, progressively zooming in:

The first screen shot: the general area, Spotted Horn oil field. Note: the "purple" is the 2560-acre spacing unit (4-section, L-shaped spacing unit):


Now, the second screen shot, zooming in to look at the wells that have been drilled (note the short laterals and the long laterals):


Finally, the third shot, including the well that is still in confidential status (#23064):


There are a number of data points regarding the area in purple:
  • when checking the Bakken spacing on the NDIC GIS map server, only "2560-acre" shows up
  • in other words, when checking the area in purple for Bakken spacing, neither 1280-acre nor 640-acre spacing shows up
Now look at the spacing of these four wells according to the NDIC data base:
  • 23066, two-section spacing; 1280-acre spacing; 261, EOG, Bear Den 102-1708H, Three Forks, 51 stages; 10.3 million lbs sand; t6/13; cum 445K 5/18;
  • 23065, two-section spacing; 1280-acre spacing; 282, EOG, Bear Den 20-1708H, middle Bakken, 48 stages; 9.8 million lbs sand; t6/13; cum 453K 5/18;
  • 19170, single section; 640-acre spacing; 1,882, EOG, Bear Den 07-17H, middle Bakken; 15 stages; 2 million lbs; t1/11; cum 269K 5/18;
Likewise, Bear Den 04-20H is single-section spacing (640-acre spacing):
  • 19157, single section; 640-acre spacing; 1,476, EOG, Bear Den 04-20H, middle Bakken; 15 stages; 2 million lbs, t3/11; cum 157K 9/13; production of #19157 (also shown above):

There are additional wells planned for this 2560-acre spacing unit.

By the way, did you all notice where the Spotted Horn oil field was located? Yup, right next to the incredible Clarks Creek and Antelope fields where EOG is also reporting some incredible wells. It looks like we're back to just getting started in the Bakken.

  1. Bruce,

    There are also three wells drilled on the same pad as well 19170 Bear Den 07-17H. One will come off confidential this month. The three wells on the pad in Section 20 will be off confidential in Dec (2) and Feb. (1).

    1. Thank you. In fact, I've added the "Bear Den" wells to the "Families Of Wells" at the sidebar at the right. I think about a year from now there will be so much data coming out of the Bakken, I won't be able to keep up any more. I will only be able to follow one field. Smile. Perhaps the Sanish.

    2. I would like to thank you for this site. A little over a year ago I didn't know diddly about this industry or the Bakken. Thanks to this site and so many other sites I read about on here I actually know something. Also "that other site" has convinced me it is a site for whinners

    3. Thank you for your kind comments.

      I was kicked off the "other site."

      The best overall site explaining the Bakken and unconventional oil is RBN Energy which I link almost every day.

      I've also had a lot of help from folks like you, and from several readers named Mike, and several readers named Don.
