Basin-Leading ResultsBakken, North Dakota
About the PlayBakken
Oil was first discovered on Henry Bakken’s land in 1951, but it wasn’t until the past decade that technology advances turned the basin into one of the country’s largest oil production regions. With more than ten years of experience in the Bakken, we’re focused on the high-return Myrmidon area, building on the successes from our enhanced completion designs, as well as delineating our position in Hector.
We've been operating in North Dakota since 2006. Our acreage is located primarily within the established Williston Basin in Dunn, Hettinger, McKenzie, McLean, Mountrail, Slope and Williams counties in North Dakota.
Latest Activity4Q 2017
Our production in the Bakken in North Dakota averaged 69,000 net boed in 4Q, up 17% compared to 3Q. We brought 13 gross Company-operated wells to sales in 4Q, nine of which came in West Myrmidon. The Forsman Middle Bakken well in West Myrmidon set a new Williston Basin 30-day oil record with a rate of 3,005 barrels per day. The testing of enhanced completion designs continued to deliver encouraging results.
Our industry is in the midst of transformation. To successfully navigate this transformation, we must take advantage of the linkage between innovation and operational excellence.
