All's Well That Ends Well -- Shakespeare's Philosophy On Drilling In The Bakken -- November 29, 2014

Updates

October 8, 2016: it was noted that these three incredible wells were taken off-line in mid-July, 2016, and remained off-line all of August, 2016. 

December 16, 2015: production update here

September 6, 2015: a reader sent two photos of the first at Flatland Federal #27522. The reader noted that one individual (a male) suffered burns but recovered fully. The Williston Herald story is here, with one of the two photos sent me.



September 5, 2015: the three Flatland wells have been updated through July, 2015. The Flatland wells have been updated through July, 2015; note that all three wells are still flowing without a pump; also note the the wells have not been on-line the full time; in fact, #27520 was off-line the entire month of July, 2015; in July, for #27520, there was a report that the gas capture unit originally installed was removed; the wellpad is now selling to ONEOK's pipeline. The form said all three Flatland wells were affected.

May 5, 2015: production numbers for these three wells have been updated through February, 2015.

Later, 9:05 p.m. CT: silly me. I didn't think of looking at the scout ticket(s) for the other well(s) on this pad. Here they are:

Original Post

From the well file for a Whiting well still on confidential, but some information had been previously released. From the Geologic Summary:
The Whiting Oil and Gas Corporation Flatland Federal 11-4TFHU is a Twin Valley field well ... the initial phase ... is a coring pilot hole, followed by a vertical and curve, landing in the Three Forks Cycle 2 formation.

The Flatland Fed 11-4TFHU spud February 23, 2014, and reached a total depth of 21,640' MD on May 9, 2014. A month-long delay occurred when Nabors B08 caught fire on the afternoon of March 25. Nabors B15 was moved on locations April 27, 2014, and finished drilling the well.
So, how did things turn out? 

The well is still on confidential; it should come off the confidential list April 7, 2015, but here is the scout ticket (you may want to be sitting down when you look at the first month production):

NDIC File No: 27522, t12/14; cum 395K 12/16

This should be a full month of production; the scout ticket shows no production in the month of September. Yes, the scout ticket says this well produced 44,111 bbls of oil in the first month of production.

Gas in the upper Three Forks was unremarkable, ranging from 11 units to 724 units. However, in the target zone, in the Three Forks Cycle 2 target zone, gas ranged from 17 to 8,500 units while drilling and in excess of 9,500 units during trips.

Nabors B08 was deemed unfit to continue work and had to be cut apart and removed from location. I am hoping that no one was injured in the fire, but nothing was said. This well is the first of two wells drilled on this pad.

The permit application states this is a Three Forks B1 well on a 2560-acre spacing unit. 

By the way, note the oil field: Twin Valley, where Whiting is setting some records with production. I track the Twin Valley oil field here.

For newbies, 44,111 bbls in the first month is huge, but it's not unprecedented for monthly production; here is what EOG has done as just one of many EOG examples.

By the way, this is what the first few months production of a Whiting record-setting well was in the same oil field, Twin Valley:
  • 20589, 4,815, Whiting, Tarpon Federal 21-4H, said to have a 7,000 boepd IP; record middle Bakken (as of Feb, 2012); Twin Valley; s8/11; t10/11; cum 587K 12/16; 30 stages; 2 million lbs sand/mesh (the fourth column is monthly oil production in bbls)

Well, If This Will Keep 'Em Out Of The Malls

Being tweeted now:  'Journey for Justice' marchers pass St. Louis airport on 1st leg of 120-mile trek to state capital; the 7-day march is organized by the NAACP - @huyMach.

They could drive it in an hour and a half, and gasoline is really inexpensive now. I wonder if Al Sharpton will walk, ride, or helicopter?

Update, July 12, 2015: unfortunately no frack data has been scanned into the NDIC file. Production has been updated below. 

The original note:
  • 17314, 431, MRO, Brown 24-9H, Killdeer, API: 33-025-00769, a 10 - 30' flare for fifty minutes; this is a bit confusing for me, but I believe this well was spud/completed in 2008, but it was re-fracked in August, 2014, and that's why it shows up in today's report; the re-frack data was not yet scanned in; last full month production was in July, 2014; it will be interesting to see what new production numbers are and what the re-frack data is; t8/08; cum 316K 12/16;
Here is the latest production data, pretty self-explanatory:

By the way, look at the consistency of production between 3/14 and 7/14 -- amazing what "nature" can do. LOL.

But on a serious note: from a sundry form received on May 20, 2014, "MRO has decided to run a liner with frac sleeves in this well prior to re-frac'ing this well. The liner will be run approximatley 10,000' MD to TD at 20,190' MD." Number of stages, amount of proppant not yet scanned in.

When last seen, the geologists and roughnecks were opening a bottle of champagne. (I made that part up.)

NOTE: I'm not sure what to make of EOG's Wayzetta Three Forks, #26929, see parameters above. The well has produced almost no oil in the first four months of production and the IP was atrocious. Something does not make sense. [Again, I might be missing something or misreading something. If this is important to you, go to the source.]

Catching Up With Non-Bakken News: Germany Goes Brown And Other Stories-- November 28, 2014

****************************
Did I Miss Anything?

After Don sent me the link to the story linked below, I responded:
So incredibly bizarre.
Following a tsunami after a huge earthquake in Japan, Germany shuts down nuclear energy at the same time it imposes green energy rules, and then finds out the sun doesn't shine enough, so they have to burn the "dirtiest" coal in the world to make up for lost nuclear power (pretty much emission-free), and destroy a lovely little village in the process.
The fact that the odds of a tsunami in Germany are somewhere between zero and zilch (and "zilch just left town") and earthquakes in Germany are almost as rare apparently was not taken into account.
Did I miss anything? 
It's hard to be believe that a country famous for "producing" Leibniz, Goethe, Einstein, Gauss, Max Born, and on and on and on could get to this point.
The AP is reporting:
Five days a week, a giant machine eats its way through soil at the Jaenschwalde open-cast mine in eastern Germany, exposing the brown coal buried beneath.
Lignite, as this form of compressed peat is known, is becoming an increasingly important part of Germany's effort to phase out nuclear energy
It's also the reason why Atterwasch, a village that survived the Thirty Years' War, a Soviet onslaught at the end of World War II and four hard decades of communist rule is slated to be razed. 
The village, with its volunteer fire station and old brownstone church, is to make way for a strip mine in the next decade. Dozens of other villages have fallen victim to the same fate, as coal once again becomes king.
The plan has many of Atterwasch's 250 inhabitants up in arms.
Germany has one of the "greenest energy movements" on earth, but when push comes to shove (like running out of energy), the greenest country on earth will end up burning lignite.

Politics
The Stories Are Starting To Snowball
With regard to politics, there are two overriding themes related to the lame duck status of POTUS:
  • he is being pushed off-stage, exit left, to make room for the media's next annointed 
  • the Democratic Party's nominee will move away from ObamaCare
The tipping point, with regard to ObamaCare, was "the Schumer speech."

This was not an off-the-cuff answer to a reporter when caught off-guard; this was a well-thought-out, well-rehearsed speech that took some time to write.

The mainstream media is now free to publish stories that couldn't have been published before the mid-term elections. The stories are starting to snowball as the Schumer-Hillary wing of the party tries to clawback, as they say, ObamaCare.
The substance of the story at the first linked article is actually more substantive than the headline: 
Leading U.S. CEOs, angered by the Obama administration's challenge to certain "workplace wellness" programs, are threatening to side with anti-Obamacare forces unless the government backs off, according to people familiar with the matter.
Major U.S. corporations have broadly supported President Barack Obama's healthcare reform despite concerns over several of its elements, largely because it included provisions encouraging the wellness programs.
The programs aim to control healthcare costs by reducing smoking, obesity, hypertension and other risk factors that can lead to expensive illnesses.
A bipartisan provision in the 2010 healthcare reform law allows employers to reward workers who participate and penalize those who don't. But recent lawsuits filed by the administration's Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), challenging the programs at Honeywell International and two smaller companies, have thrown the future of that part of Obamacare into doubt
Dark days ahead is simply a laundry list of all the challenges facing ObamaCare, most of which POTUS will see simply an ankle-biters, assuming he's even the least big interested any more on a subject that, like global warming, is closed (at least in his mind).

The third linked article hardly needed a Gallup poll to tell us what we already knew following the midterm elections.  But Schumer-Hillary's internal polling probably suggests things are even worse. It all depends how one asks the question. Regardless, it's a sad commentary for the healthcare industry in the US:
One in three Americans has put off seeking medical treatment in 2014 due to high costs, according to Gallup — the highest percentage since Gallup began asking the question in 2001. 
Thirty-three percent of Americans have delayed medical treatment for themselves or their families because of the costs they’d have to pay.
Obamacare, of course, had promised that it would help make health care more affordable for everyone, but the number of people who can’t afford a trip to the doctor has actually risen three points since 2013, before most Obamacare provisions took effect.

Breaking News

Perhaps one of the best new features on the blog is "Breaking News" at the top of the sidebar at the right.

"Breaking News" is very, very interesting; it's something quite unique. Apparently (I could be wrong) there are a number of people (could be dozens) that monitor tweets from all over the world, and then post the tweets are are unique, brand new, that have not been previously reported by any news agency (except as tweets).

 So, they have quite a unique model: they have to cross-check the tweets to see that they truly are "breaking news" and have not been picked up by news agencies. Then, to some extent, they need to "trust" the tweets. They have to be fast; if they delay, a news agency may pick up the story first and report it; if they are too fast, and don't somehow confirm the veracity of the tweet, they could start off some incredibly bad rumors.

Generally speaking, a sequence of thirty (30) consecutive tweets at "Breaking News" would be from around the world and tweeting a variety of subjects. Tonight, perhaps starting about 8:30 CT there seemed to be a "run" of tweets from across the US about protestors shutting down shopping malls and/or disrupting Christmas (Holiday) Tree lighting  ceremonies.

At the moment, it seems these protests across the country are minor nuisances in the big scheme of things, but there is the very real possibility that they could get out of hand resulting in injuries or escalation. Certainly, agitators are looking to see where the weak points in law enforcement are; where agitators/protestors can cause the most damage with least amount of risk; and, gradually enlist additional disenfranchised urban youth to join the protestors. It will be interesting to see how agitators use social media to further their goals and whether law enforcement agencies can use that same social media to stay ahead of the agitators.

Closing Out The Poll Asking If President Obama Deserves Credit For The Increase In US Oil Production -- November 29, 214

The poll has been up long enough, and in an effort to clean up the sidebar on the right, it's time to close the poll in which we asked, "Does President Obama deserve credit for overseeing the fastest increase in US oil production?"
  • Yes: 25%
  • No: 17%
  • Are you kidding: 58%
In a companion poll that asked, "Were you under the influence of some "drug" when you answered that question?"
  • Yes: 25%
  • No: 75%

Van Hook Wells In The Parshall Oil Field

If I have a page on the EOG Van Hook wells, I've forgotten where it is. A lot can be learned from these wells:
  • note the nomenclature to separate middle Bakken wells from Three Forks wells
  • note the number of stages and the amount of sand used to frack
  • note the correlation of completion techniques with production
  • follow the intensity of drilling over time (number of permits each year)

Random Look At EOG Well; More Than 300,000 Bbls In Less Than Nine (9) Full Months -- November 28, 2014

Random update, geologist's narrative not scanned in (as far as I could tell; I could have missed it). 
  • 25785, see above, EOG, Wayzetta 36-1920H, Parshall, 40 stages; 17 million lbs sand; s9/26/13; cease driling, 10/9/13; note flaring issue; outside of the reservation (north of FBIR)
After receiving the first comment after this was posted, I went back and checked the other wells in this immediate area: they are all flaring almost all of their natural gas.  -- November 29, 2014
Look at the production in January and February, 2014 (note number of days of production and amount produced).
