EOG Getting Ready To Frack More Austin Wells In The Parshall -- September 21, 2018


Later, 11:43 a.m. CDT: see first comment. Apparently #34550 and #34552 have both been completed within the last couple of days.

I saw your post on the Parshall Wells being fracked recently! Austin wells in Sections 11,17, 19 and 29 have been fracked or are very soon! I believe they are all 1920’s.
That covers a lot of ground. Look at all the 1920-acre spacing units in the Parshall -- this is a screenshot of just part of the Parshall. The purple areas are 1920-acre spacing units. "All" of these horizontals in the Parshall are EOG wells; most/many are the incredible Austin wells:

A screenshot of just a few of the almost 150 EOG Austin wells in the Parshall. For newbies: note the chronological number in the legal names.

These are the Austin wells that the reader may have been referring to:


  1. 34550 and 34552 just got done with a stim a couple days ago.

    1. "The frack data is in the mail." -- EOG. LOL.

      FracFocus has not gotten the data entered yet, but I'll watch for it. Thank you.

  2. This may explain why we've heard more frack trains (110 hopper bottom cars) coming through here (Eau Claire, WI) lately, as EOG has a large frack sand plant just north of us in Chippewa Falls, WI.

    1. Interesting. I've long forgotten but I believe one unit train -- 110 hopper bottom cars -- is the amount of sand required to frack one well in the Bakken. [In the Permian, they use even more sand.]
