West Bay Exploration gets kudos for quietly working the Trenton-Black River play in the SE corner of Michigan and achieving some pretty nifty results. Working an apparent fairway that has the same orientation as the fabled Albion-Scipio field, they’ve drilled a set of short reach horizontals/directionals wells that have made good amounts of oil with little decline, but variable amounts of produced water. Lower volume wells look to have faster decline rates. With some wells producing a steady 200+ BOPD and low water cuts, and good prices for oil, we’d guess that West Bay is pretty happy with their results, especially with what we see as shallow drilling depths (4000’+) keeping a reasonable lid on those AFEs. Savoy seems to want to do likewise with trend permits to the SSE. To see detail on a well, hover your cursor over the dot.
