Wow, Wow, Wow -- Another CLR Well Just Went Over 500K Bbls Crude Oil Cumulative -- April 5, 2020

Updates

April 6, 2020: see first comment --
According to shaleprofile.com, CLR has 54 wells over 0.5 cum BO. (restricted to ND, hz, and 2005 or later first production). Of those 26 are Red River stuff (Bowman and Slope counties). The sp data is a month or two old and there were a couple wells at 499, so the tickers has probably gone to 56 or higher by now.

Note of course that this is a tiny fraction of their overall wells. They have 1782 hz wells (post 2005, ND). So the 54 wells represent 3% of their well population. Just an important thing to keep in mind when look at exuberant posts here...not representative.
Original Post 

The CLR Nashville wells are tracked here

The Bakken never ceases to surprise me. I had not updated the "Nashville" wells in a long time. First out of the chute, and look at this one, amazing, going over 500K bbls of crude oil in less than four years:
  • 31357, 1,102, CLR, Nashville 2-21H, Catwalk, 40 stages, 8.7 million lbs, t6/16; cum 503K 2/20; easily exceeding a 900,000 bbl-EUR type curve (per CLR corporate presentation, data as of 9/6/16), recent production, note the "jumps" in production:

Notes From All Over, Sunday Night Edition -- April 5, 2020

First item: A reader sent me this one: where do readers find these things?
Link to twitter: make sure you have the volume turned up, and if the voice you hear is familiar, you've got it: https://twitter.com/RaheemKassam/status/1246805956283039745.
Daily grocery store visit: our neighborhood grocery is in good shape. It appears it has almost everything in stock. Shelves containing essentials are 25% to 50% stocked depending on the item.
One exception: the toilet paper shelves were completely empty. But that's because a large shipment of toilet paper had just arrived and the pallets of bathroom tissue were being stacked in the aisles, with a limit of one package of twelve rolls per customer. Eggs: huge supply. Most interesting: pallets of large containers of Hershey chocolate syrup for ice cream. Why would they have pallets of Hershey chocolate? Who knows? That's a rhetorical question.
Walmart: I did not go, but our older daughter did. This is how Sophia's family is managing household supplies. Sophia is five years old so she does not participate per se.
Throughout the week, the dad, mom, Arianna (16) and Olivia (13) simply and virtually / electronically place items in the family's virtual Walmart cart. Then, every Sunday, following their evening meal which is Grubhub takeout from a top restaurant in the city, their Mom drives to Walmart to pick up the items in their cart. She says it is really, really smooth/efficient: she alerts Walmart when she is on her way -- a ten-minute drive -- and then parks in a pre-assigned spot. Upon arrival, she telephones/texts Walmart and they bring the "stuff" out to the car.
My hunch: they will continue to do this even after the lock down / quarantine ends six months from now.
Six months from now? Did I really say that? Singapore is now experiencing its second wave Wuhan flu. Remember, Wuhan flu began in that part of the world in December, four months ago, and now they are experiencing their second wave.

Winners: without question, coming out of this lock down, the winners are going to be Walmart, Target, Amazon, Costco, and Sam's Club. 

TCM: absolutely amazing what Ted Turner acquired when he bought the MGM library. Truly amazing. Still enjoying the opportunity to watch so much with no commercial interruption and no distractions. 

NASCAR: "live" racing tonight. Thirty-seven or thirty-eight drivers participating. Each driver is in a simulator and racing "live." It's actually pretty interesting. You know it's fake because the stands are packed with spectators.

The other day I wrote:
Interestingly, the first true frog: Triadobatrachus .... something.

For the life of me, I can't find the etymology of this word except for this "three-frogged." "Tri" = three and adobatrachus  or obatrachus "means" frog, but I don't know the Latin/Greek for adobatrachus. Maybe it's in the wiki entry but I missed it. I thought trachus might have something to do with trachea and maybe it does, but every time I do a wiki search for "trachus" it takes me to "tragus" (part of the ear). Adobo is a form of cooking so that's no help, unless they're talking about froglegs. LOL.
Finally, I found the origin of batrachus. But it appears philologists haven't been able to do much better.

It appears that batrahus is borrowed from Pre-Greek or Semitic (think the plague of frogs).
Pre-Greek consists of the unknown language or languages spoken in prehistoric Greece before the settlement of Proto-Greek speakers during the Middle and Late Bronze Age period in the area. It is possible that Greek took over some thousand words and proper names from such a language (or languages), because some of its vocabulary cannot be satisfactorily explained as deriving from the Proto-Greek language (also known as Proto-Hellenic, an Indo-European language).

Pre-Greek is not Indo-European.
"Helen of Troy" and the fall of Troy marked the end of the Late Bronze Age, and the beginning of the Iron Age, around 1200 BC.

Back to βάτραχος, it is only said, "seemingly imitative of croaking." A stretch. So, unless there's an incredibly new finding, we will probably not learn any more about how batrachus came about.

The WPX Rubia Wells In Mandaree Oil Field; WPX Will Report Two Huge Rubia Wells This Next Week -- April 5, 2020

Remember that meme that daughter wells do not do as well as parent wells? Not true in the Bakken.  Look at initial production for three daughter wells compared to initial production of the parent well. I remember when I first started blogging, folks did not want daughter wells put in, afraid that the daughter wells would come in poor, and worse, hurt the parent well.

Emmylou Harris Over At PowerLine While Compiling The Wells That Will Come Off The Confidential List This Next Week -- April 5, 2020

Wow, what a treat. Over at PowerLine, Emmylou Harris. At one time I knew much of the story but have long forgotten it (the story). I was sure that I had posted something about Gram Parsons, but I guess I have not. What a treat to re-read the story. It's a pain to click back-and-forth on the YouTube videos while reading the story, but then I remembered what Sophia would do --she would read the story but would ask Alexa to play Emmylou Harris. LOL. So, here we go.

North Texas

Third day in a row, overcast, cool (feels cold), rain -- wow, this spring is sure dragging out. There certainly is no sign of global warming in this part of the God's little earth.

Let's go see what the "real climate science" guy says. We can start with global snow cover.

The Last Picture Show

I saw it for the first time ever, last night on TCM.

My notes as I started watching:
  • Wichita Falls
  • north Texas
  • November
  • cold
  • basketball as opposed to football
  • townspeople upset they lost their basketball game the previous evening
  • sound track Hank Williams, SR
  • first thought: American Graffitti (1973)
  • Last Picture Show: 1971
  • begins with going to the town's one movie theater
  • chewing gum
  • 1951 movie with Elizabeth Taylor; "A Place In The Sun"?
  • Cybil
  • Last Picture Show: 1951 -- Korea
  • American Graffitti: 1962 -- Vietnam
  • cars
  • main street
  • Rig-Wam Drive In
  • Dr Pepper: Sonny at Cloris Leachman's house
  • sort of reminds me of a Coen Bros movie; period, regional film
  • dance; Cybil (Jacy) driving to dance -- so "American Graffiti"
  • one can almost match various Last Picture Show scenes with American Graffitti scenes
  • from a "film" point of view, Last Picture Show much better than American Graffitti
  • movie theater in town = Mel's Diner
  • best sound track ever? for country 
  • both pictures introduced a number of actors/actresses that went on to become quite famous
This morning:
  • American Graffitti, easy to watch; can easily watch more than once; a feel good movie, captures California love for cars, dragging main street, coming of age with no sex, no nudity;  don't recall ever being "bored" watching any of it; alcohol but comic scene; could watch with family; color; when all said and done, I had good feeling for each of the different characters, each one very distinctive; forward looking;
  • The Last Picture Show: a difficult movie to watch; subject matter much darker; captures dying Texas town so very, very well; at times moved a bit slowly; more of a Coen Bros dark period piece; soft porn in the eyes of some; lots of sex; nudity; no drugs, no alcohol (with one short, inconsequential exception); I don't recall many "light" moments; overall, depressing? black and white; when all said and done, the men all seemed to blend together; the women fell into two different groups, young and pretty, coming of age; the second group, older, wiser, burned out, dead end;
