To add to the point of 1 million EUR not only being what Hess is now using but that it is also reasonable....some Hess wells in the Williston basin have already produced (actual results, not just projected results) more than THREE times the current 1 million barrels EUR that is being used by Hess for their Bakken dual lateral wells.
There is a list of the better wells for the area and hess has been there about the longest.
Here are just a few specific Hess examples:
3.4 million bbls
" Beaver Lodge-Devonian Unit C-3051, Silurian/Devonian, t11/59; cum 706K/2.74 million bbls -- total, over 3.4 million bbls; produced for almost 40 years.
2.02 million bbls
Hess, Beaver Lodge-Devonian Unit H-310, t3/60; Devonian, 2.02 million bbls; still active; almost 2,000 bbls monthly, 7/12.
2.1 million bbls
Hess, Tioga-Madison Unit L-144, Tioga, t8/53; cum 2.1 million bbls;
Those older Hess wells were not even with dual laterals.
