A reader just sent me a note suggesting I keep an eye on the Zavanna wells east of Williston:
Keep an eye on Zavanna's Sylvester, Beagle, Husky, and Bear Cat wells just northeast of Williston.The reader provided additional information but I don't know how "sensitive" it is, so I won't post it for now. It has to do with frack design and we will see that information when the wells come off confidential list and/or the data is posted at the NDIC site.
They are currently fracking 13 new wells in those 2 spacing units.Their original Bear Cat well (24543) has produced 200K bbls of oil in its first 13 months of production (started producing April '13 but has been offline for about 3 months due to the nearby drilling/fracking). It's still been producing 10K bbls per month.
I was going to do a stand-alone post on Zavanna, but had forgotten until I got that note. What a great reminder, simply serendipity.
The area under discussion is (north)east of Williston in the Springbrook and Williston oil fields. The wells are about 3 - 4 miles east of the bridge going over the Little Muddy River east of Williston, and then about 3 - 4 miles north:

By the way, the Muddy River Boys would have been in this very area, the area of the Zavanna wells in Springbrook oil field, section 32-155-100, on their way up to the four-mile bridge. Or was it the nine-mile bridge. Have to check that when I get home. From an earlier post:
Coincidentally, my sister gave me a book that she had forgotten to give me 18 months earlier. A reader of the blog sent me a copy of The Muddy River Boys. Also at Amazon.com. Interestingly enough, someone actually mentioned it to me sometime ago, and I had forgotten all about it. At the link, look at the first comment. It's a must-read for those with nostalgic memories of North Dakota back in 1930 - 1960. The book covers the period, generally, from 1944 - 1948. If I recall, very little mention, if any, was made of WWII.
