Great Question About The CLR Atlanta Pad

A reader asked which formations the wells on the CLR Atlanta pad southwest of Williston were targeting. The nomenclature is not helpful except to note that they are all "H" wells suggesting that they are not targeting the lower Three Forks benches. The question was whether the wells would target both the middle Bakken and the Three Forks. [On other pads in which CLR is targeting the middle Bakken, the upper Three Forks, and the lower benches of the Three Forks, CLR follows the "H" in the nomenclature with a number between 1 and 4, or no number at all, for example: -3H, -3H1, -3H2, -3H3.)

Considering that all four wells run in the same general direction (south: eastsoutheast; southeast, and south) -- none run north -- suggest that the wells would have to target bot the middle Bakken and the Three Forks.

I've just gone through all the well files to see which formations the wells are targeting. It's half and half: half middle Bakken and half Three Forks, which I assume are upper bench, the "conventional" / "standard" Three Forks, not the lower benches.

Also, in passing I noted that two of the wells had very good gas shows suggesting that these wells might have a more surprising IP than I would have guessed.

I track the Atlanta pad here. I've probably talked about the Atlanta wells elsewhere; one can find those posts by using the "blogger" search app.
