Just depends upon where you are interested in 3N-5W or 6N-5W.  There is continuing activity based upon the geology.  

For 3N-5W, the Knox Bromide field has complicated structure and old drilling in the shallow horizons on the anticline thrust.  Companies are coming in on both the NE front side and the SW back side of the big anticline to pick up the Woodford.  Mostly a gas play with condensate on the NE and gas on the SW.  

For 6N-5W-a few pending applications are waiting on hearings.  There have been a few sets of sections with multiple wells on the second round. 

From a portfolio point of view, the companies have to get all their previously leased inventory drilled out with the first horizontal well to hold the section by production.  Then given the total basket of their positions, they will come back and drill additional wells where it makes the wisest financial sense.  They have been in tight financial situations for the last two years and just coming out on the other side.

Just wondering if or when oil companies will start back drilling in 3N 5W or 6N 5W.  Will they return to go into other formations?

Larry - I believe the Bovine will make about the 8th 3-section well Continental has completed in Grady County.  Romanoff, Trammell, and 5 Newy wells.

Comment by Lawrence Betche 19 hours ago

Per previous posts, I believe CLR wants to hold those specific 3 sections by production with this single well.

Comment by Huey Paxton 19 hours ago

No part of the Bovine is in Section 29.  Roughly 48% in Section 28, 20% in Section 33, and 32% in Section 34.  Could be a fault or simply the orientation of natural fractures in the Woodford in that location.

Thanks Don and Hutch. Guess I'll wait some more.

John, the last page of the permit to drill shows the planned path of the horizontal well bore.  The Bovine doesn't run a true north/south as much as most do.  From the middle of section 28 it clips the NE corner of section 33 and ends in the west side of section 34.  Not sure if they are trying to avoid a fault line or what.  All sections are in 4N-6W.

Comment by Michael Hutchison yesterday

John, if you mean the horizontal well bores, almost all in the area run roughly north/south.

Comment by John Whitford yesterday

Is there anyway to tell which way the runs are going on Bovine? I'm in section 29.
