October 1, 2018: Oasis Lite wells were updated here.
Oasis has permits for ten more wells in the Sanish, section 11-153-93, see diagram below.

The other horizontals in that graphic:
- 17582, 1,019, Oasis, Mimir Uran 11-11H, Sanish, t11/09; cum 212K 6/19; struggling in 6/18; doing well in 2019;
- 24194, 3,518, Oasis, Lite 5393 11-11B, Sanish, t6/13; cum 286K 6/19; huge jump 6/18;
- 24166, 3,188, Oasis, Travel 5393 14-12T, Sanish, Three Forks, t5/13; cum 292K 6/19; struggling in 6/18; doing well in 2019;
- 17582, cased hole, 1.6 million lbs sand/ceramic; test, 10/27/09
- 24194, 36 stages, 4.2 million lbs; FracFocus: 5/22/2013 - 5/22/2013 (no typo; a one-day frack); 3.2 million gallons of water;
- 24166, a Three Forks well; wellbore in the TF target porosity zone for 78% of the lateral. FracFocus: fracked 5/21/2013 - 5/21/2013 (no typo; a one-day frack); 2.9 million gallons of water;
Production profile of the older well, #17582: just out of curiosity I checked the production profile for #17582 and a most interesting observation.
It's not dramatic, but some observations:
- leading up to the summer of 2013, this well's production had declined to about 1,500 bbls/month; a typical Bakken decline
- then the well was taken off-line in January, 2013, but then back on line in February; there was a jump in production but not particularly noteworthy (but note, only 14 days in February, 2013)
- then, taken off-line, off and on for the next three months
- then in May, 2013, two horizontals in the same section were fracked; one was a middle Bakken (like #17582) and one was a Three Forks well
- note how far away these two newly fracked wells were, and how little they actually "overlapped" with #17582
- note: it was actually a Three Forks well that "intersected" with the index well, a middle Bakken well
- then, note the jump to over 7,000 bbls/month after the neighboring wells were fracked
- the jump in production lasted several months, but did decline as would be expected
- the jump is not enough to move the needle for an operator, but for one who has minerals, this is not trivial
I can't wait to see the production profiles of all three wells in this section when Oasis completes ten more Lite wells -- most of which, I assume, will be fracked at the same time.
