The Oasis Hardy Well In Cottonwood Field -- September 30, 2014

Over at the discussion group the question was raised why the Hardy well in Cottonwood field has a valve set (Christmas tree) and a flare, and yet the well is shown to still be on DRL status. If the well has been fracked/tested, it's possible the paperwork has simply not caught up with the folks in Bismarck.

Be that as it may, a reader sent three photos of the pad. Although it doesn't show it on the GIS map yet, apparently the pad is built for four horizontals going north (Hardy wells) and four horizontals going south (Polly wells).

The pad does not look like one of the better pads I've seen in the Bakken. This pad does not seem to measure up to the high standards most operators work at in the Bakken. Interesting.

In the background there appears to be another rig, but for the life of me, I can't locate a well within walking distance from this well on the GIS server map.

The three porta-potties on site:
  • male
  • female
  • for those who have yet to make up their mind
