A Busy Section In The Bakken

Among the thirteen (13) permits that CLR renewed (see above), nine of them were Burr Federal wells in section 25-153-93, Sanish oil field. In the graphic below, one can see the activity in that section. Zooming in, the second graphic below, one can see the number of wells that will be sited on these pads:

It appears there will be 35 wells sited in this section. That does not mean all 35 wells are in the same drilling unit / same spacing unit; it simply means they are all "sited" in the same section. Part of this has to do with the fact that this section is along the river.
