Ladies and Gentleman, the Latest in Bakken Wells from American Oil & Gas


American Oil & Gas, who was recently acquired by Hess Corporation, recently announced the latest initial production rate of their Goliath Project in the Bakken play.  The Bergstrom 15-23H had an early 24-hour flow back rate of 2,395 barrels of oil and 3.9 MMcf of gas which equates to 3,049 barrels of oil equivalent of production.  The well has a 9,410’ lateral and 36 frac stages and the Company owns a 95% working interest in the well.

The Bergstrom 15-23H IP and completion details are the latest information American has released regarding their latest Bakken activity as it relates to their Goliath Project.  The following is a list of some of their other wells in the project and the current status as of last month:
