On that mega-pad, seventeen wells, linearly placed, sited northwest to southeast, #37043 - #37059, inclusive.
To the immediate north, perhaps on the same mega-pad, four additional wells sited linearly:
#23493 - #23496, inclusive.
These CLR Angus Federal and Simmental Federal wells are tracked here.
Later, a reader was kind enough to send a photo of the 17-well Simmental pad -- this picture looks west-to-northwest toward Williston. Isn't it just a superb picture of North Dakota? I just love it.
Think about it. Seventeen wells, $10 million each just to get started -- $170 million pad and on-going operational costs. Big, big, big business.
