Whiting Drilling Away in the Bakken


Earlier this month, Whiting announced the results of 6 new Bakken wells in the Sanish field in Mountrail Co., ND.  These wells produced an average 24-hour test rate of 2,469 Bbls of oil, 1,276 Mcf of gas and 2,682 barrels of oil equivalent.  The most successful of the 6 was the Lacey 12-1H with a 24-hour test rate of 3,199 Bbls of oil and 1,473 Mcf of gas which equates to 3,445 barrels of oil equivalent.  This well was gauged on a 40/64-inch choke with 842 psi of flowing casing pressure.  The well was drilled and completed in the southeast portion of the Sanish field, as seen in the map below, with 18 frac stages using sliding sleeve technology.

Whiting holds an 86% working interest in the Lacey and a 70% net revenue interest.
