in the last qtr of 2012 MDU earnings discussion they talked about Fidelity wells in this area, and were looking for a better completion method.. Maybe WLL showed them the way.. don
( this is from WLL earnings press release.)
Missouri Breaks Prospect. We hold 84,213 gross (57,526 net) acres in the Missouri Breaks prospect, located in Richland County, Montana and McKenzie County, North Dakota. We have implemented a new completion design in our Missouri Breaks area that utilizes cemented liners and higher sand volumes. The new frac design appears to significantly improve production rates. We recently completed the Weber 24-30-1H flowing at a rate of 1,164 BOE/d using our new completion design. This well offset the Mullin 21-24-1H, which tested at a rate of 481 BOE/d and was completed using our prior frac design, an uncemented liner with sliding sleeve technology.
