Random Note Regarding A CLR Proposal To Add 24 Wells To A Drilling Unit Already With Six Existing Wells -- October 24, 2017

Updates

June 15, 2021: five Carson Peak / Morris DUCs reported as completed today.

May 24, 2021: a Carson Peak well reported as a DUC; other wells updated; note that many of the neighboring wells are off-line;

February 28, 2021: update; two more Morris wells coming off confidential list.

August 18, 2020: three new permits added, #37793 - #37795, inclusive. See this post. The new permits:

  • 37793, conf-->drl/NC, CLR, Morris 14-26HSL2, Corral Creek,
  • 37794, conf-->drl/A, , CLR, Carson Peak 13-35H,
  • 37795, conf-->drl/NC, CLR, Carson Peak 14-35HSL2,

July 14, 2020: four new permits added below, #37713 - #37716, inconclusive. The new permits:

  • 37713, conf-->drl/NC, CLR, Morris 12-26H1, Oakdale, SESE 26-147-96, 505' FSL 390' FEL;
  • 37714, conf, CLR, Morris 13-26H, Oakdale, SESE 26-147-96, 460' FSL 390' FEL;
  • 37715, drl/NC, CLR, Carson Peak 11-35H2, Oakdale, SESE 26-147-96, 370' FSL 390' FEL;
  • 37716, conf, CLR, Carson Peak 12-35H1, Oakdale, SESE 26-147-96, 325' FSL 390' FEL;
The CLR Morris / Carson Peak wells are tracked here. In section 26, Carson Peak wells run north; Morris wells runs south. This is a very strange location as far as I can tell. -- they are on confidential so I don't know anything more about them.
The graphic:



July 13, 2020: some wells updated.

June 6, 2020: production data updated for all wells on this page.

March 20, 2020: another update here

October 11, 2019: another update here.

October 10, 2019: another update here.

August 25, 2019: production data update now that all wells have been completed;  

July 11, 2019: #35082 reports today; another huge "H1" well.
  • 35082, 1,593, CLR, Morris 8-26H1, Oakdale, t4/19; cum 330K 10/20; tracked below; off line 10/20; remains off line 1/21;
June 1, 2019: #35109 is now reporting; see below.

May 15, 2019: another Morris well --
  • 35109, 956, CLR, Morris 7-26H2, Oakdale, t4/19; cum 304K 1/21;
    • off line 6/20 - 8/20; back on line 9/20;
    • most of the neighboring wells are now off-line
    • it looks like the following will show at least a small jump in production: #18858; 
May 4, 2019: more Carson Peak/Morris wells; a lot needs to be updated. 

August 6, 2018: CLR has two more Carson Peak permits, #35272 and #35273.

July 2, 2018: note the production profiles of some of these wells.

July 2, 2018: CLR has permits for another 8-well Carson Peak/Morris pad in SWNE 26-147-96; updated graphic:


March 15, 2018: production data has been updated. The graphic of this area has not changed since the original post.

Original Post 

A reader sent me this note. It provides a lot more background that helps explain the Bakken.
Attached is  a proposal by Continental to drill an additional 24 wells in the Oakdale field.
You recently posted an article about the new wells being completed in Rattlesnake Point, and that prompted me to send this to you.
There are 6 existing wells in the subject 2560 acre spacing, and Continental has proposed drilling another 24 wells there.
In addition, Sections 35 and 2 sit right next to the monster Whitman well that you’ve been following.
Apparently, Continental thinks there’s a natural fracture at the location of the Whitman well, so it’s likely that Continental wants to see how large an area that fracture covers.
The 2560 that sits to the east of these proposed wells are the Weydahl/Brandvik wells that Continental has drilled but not completed. There are 14 DUCs in that 2560 waiting to be fracked. Continental must have high regard for the potential in this area.
In the graphic that accompanied CLR's proposal/request, it's hard to count the existing/proposed wells. I counted 32 but the correct number is 30.



This is the current situation as noted by NDIC:


Later, I will go back and link some of the wells mentioned in this post, and some of the other posts that pertain to this.
  • 17079, 559, CLR, Carson Peak 44-2H, t6/08; cum 362K 1/21; a re-frack candidate; off line for a few months; back on line 3/19;
  • 17334, 811, CLR, Morris 1-23H, t11/08/ cum 378K 1/21; another re-frack candidate; huge jump in production in 4/19;
  • 18858, 715, CLR, Morris 3-26H, t5/11; cum 508K 1/21; yes, ready to be re-fracked; off line 7/19; back on line 8/19; not much of a jump in production;
  • 18859, 680, CLR, Carson Peak 3-35H, t5/11; cum 835K 1/21; nice production profile (5/18); huge jump in production, 4/19;
  • 18860, 517, CLR, Morris 2-26H, t5/11; cum 312K 1/21; off line 8/18; starting to come back on line as of 7/19; off line 9/19; back on line 10/20;
  • 18861, 759, CLR, Carson Peak 2-35H, t5/11; cum 738K 1/21;off line since 10/18; starting to come back on line, maybe, 7/19; still off line 9/19;
But again, a huge "thank you" to the reader for sharing this with me.

By the way, the proposal also included a list of mineral owners. There are exactly 50 mineral owners noted, including:
  • CLR: 35.36%
  • BR: 35.36%
  • XTO: 9.37%
  • Imperial Oil: 2.34%
  • Hess: 1.88%
  • three private individuals, each with 0.01%
