EOG Looking To Put Upwards Of 60 Wells In One 2560-Acre Drilling Unit -- May 1, 2020

From the May 28, 2020, NDIC hearing dockets, found on page 3 of 7.

Case, not permit:
  • 28486, Spotted Horn-Bakken, 61 wells on an existing 2560-acre spacing unit; sections 8/17/19/20-150-94, McKenzie County; 2560 acres / 61 = 42-acre spacing.


  1. Yeah, that's a lot, but:

    1. They may not drill them all. It's just a permit.

    2. If they do short laterals, as EOG has a tendency, it's less impressive. Ends up being 15 wells in terms of lateral spacing, given the wells are half normal length and double-sized unit. So really 61/15. Of course some of the HBP wells in the diagram are full length, but no guarantee they develop the rest that way.
