Three (3) New Permits -- April 29, 2016

Active rigs:

Active Rigs2986189186209

Three (3) new permits --
  • Operator: Whiting
  • Field: Heart Butte (Dunn)
  • Comments: 
HRC renewed five (5) permits, an Ann H. Thome in Williams County; and four Fort Berthold permits in Dunn County

KOG canceled three permits, three Smokey permits in McKenzie County.

Cancelled KOG Permits

See first comment below. Yes, the three canceled permits were listed as Kodiak Oil & Gas permits:
  • 26541, PNC, Kodiak Oil & Gas, Smokey 146-99-2-3-10-15H3, 
  • 26542, PNC, Kodiak Oil & Gas, Smokey 146-99-2-3-10-15H,
  • 26543, PNC, Kodiak Oil & Gas, Smokey 146-99-2-3-10-16H3, 
I only looked at one file report, #26541:
  • October 28, 2014: sundry form received by NDIC; KOG requested a permit renewal for this well.
  • November 13, 2014: standard form releasing this site back for restoration; "Location was never built. OK to release."
  • December 2, 2014: letter from NDIC to Kodiak Oil & Gas approved the sites to be released; the company was released from the bond.
  • September 28, 215: letter from NDIC to Kodiak Oil & Gas indicating that the "referenced permit will expire October 29, 2015."
Bottom line: it appears that this is simply paperwork catching up with activity in the real world. Exceptional attention to detail in a time of lots and lots of activity for the NDIC. Before any well can be transferred to a new operator, and before a permit/well can be released "back to site restoration" requires the NDIC to physically inspect the site and audit the entire file report.

Tuna Steak - Salmon - Artichoke - Baby Peas - Deanston

The tuna steak for me; the salmon for my wife. The tuna is marinaded for about two hours with olive oil, Worcester sauce, soy sauce, and pepper. The tuna steak is grilled for not more than four minutes. Only buy the best artichokes (otherwise, don't) and they will take a full hour to prepare (boil) with lemon.
