Great Video Of A Unique Well In North Dakota -- July 23, 2015


October 3, 2017: update regarding this well. Sent in by a reader, see first comment.  Scroll down to the original post below to see the video.
This well is no longer a dual completion.
They eliminated the one tubing string and are producing from only one of the two formations. The second Ampscot pumping uni has been removed. They first attempted to commingle the two formations as they both produced well, but the iron-laden production water from the sweet Bakken formation didn't play nice with the sour Madison formation- making iron sulfate, which tends to make terrible deposits and plug everything up.
I'm glad I captured it when I did. I have yet to see another dual completion well in North Dakota. 
Based on the NDIC scout ticket, it appears the middle Bakken was shut in on/about 9/7/2016; the Madison continues to produce.

Original Post
What an incredible "treat" for readers of the blog. A reader has sent comments and a video regarding a dual completion well, the Kadrmas 11-25. The reader is aware of no other dual completion well in North Dakota. In the video below, note that two 912 Amscots pump from the same wellhead:

Dual Completion Well; Two Pumps On Same Wellhead

Note: the middle Bakken was drilled first; a little over a year later, the Madison was drilled.

By the way, some of these posts are very old. After they were posted, my site was hacked and the URL "stolen." If you click on a link and get a message that the page does not exist, do not despair. If it's a link to one of my posts, the post is still there. Simply insert "the" in front of the URL. I changed the URL "milliondollarway....." to "" and have had no further problems. I'm correcting the links as fast as I can.

From the file report, after the Bakken was drilled:
Anschutz Exploration Corporation provides the summary description of the work performed to test the Fryburg, and install a dual completion for the Fryburg and Bakken for the Kadrmas 11-25H. Due to the complexity of the work, additional detailed doucmentation has been provided....

Starting September 30, 2008: The Bakken was isolated via an RBP at 9690', the Fryburg was perfed and tested. With the Bakken isolated by said RBP, the Fryburg was produced via pump/rods from 10/16/08 - 12/3/08.

Starting Deembert 3, 2008: The Bakken was put back on line, and was produced under a packer at 10,052' while preparations to set up a dual completions were made. The Bakken was produced from 12/19/08 - 11/3/09, and was isolated from the Fryburg via a packer at 10,052'.

Starting 11/18/09: The well was set up as a dual completion, Fryburg and Bakken; to be produced independently via rod pump and isolated via 2 production packers.

At no time were the Fryburg and Bakken commingled. Anschutz went to significant lengths to ensure that commingling did not occur. Durng the Fryburg test, the Bakken was isolated by an RBP. When the Bakken was put back on line, it was produced under a packer located below the Fryburg interval. During the Dual completion set up, all intervals were killed with water. In its current state, the intervals are isolated by 2 packers. -- received June 30, 2010.
