The other day, I noted that Whiting had taken every one of its wells out of production -- at least all the wells I checked. Whiting well after Whiting well after Whiting well was reported by the NDIC to have had no crude oil production in July, 2021. There were so many wells, I simply quit looking.
After the umpteenth well I quit looking and added the disclaimer:
Data from the NDIC; NDIC does have some IT issues so there could be other explanations.
That was August 31, 2021. Now, two days later, September 2, 2021, lo and behold, the NDIC has populated all those scout tickets with production for the month of July, 2021.
The NDIC must have received a lot of phone calls after it was being reported that Whiting had taken "all" its wells off line.
So, I was correct: it was an "IT" issue. It looks like the Whiting wells were not taken out of production.
As noted at the NDIC website, all data after July 14, 2021, is suspect.
