Brigham Breaking Records in the Bakken


Brigham Exploration announced this week that their Sorenson 29-32 #1H set the new record in the Williston basin with an early 24 hour peak flow back rate of 5,133 barrels of oil equivalent per day (Boe/d).  According to their press release this record is based on publicly reported data available to Brigham and is compared to over 2,700 horizontal wells in the Williston basin.  The Sorenson well is located in the Companies’ Ross project which is east of the Nesson anticline in Montrail County, North Dakota.  The well was completed in the Bakken play with 27 frac stages and Brigham maintains a 95% working interest in the well.  With the addition of the Sorenson, Brigham has completed 18 long lateral high frac stage wells shared between the Bakken and Three Forks, 16 and 2 respectively, with an average IP of 2,581 Boe/d.

This well and others can be seen in DI’s Performance Press Release section of the Bakken Unconventional Update.
