Samson Oil is good at this "hesitation” technique.
Sail and Anchor 4-13-14 HBK (Horizontal Bakken) well, as reported last week, drilled from 17,350 feet (MD) to final TD of 18,050 feet (MD). A 4-1/2 inch production liner has been run and cemented. The well has 6,370 feet of treatable lateral. Drill pipe is presently being laid down in preparation to run a 4-1/2 inch tie-back string in order to set the well up for the hydraulic fracture program which is currently being scheduled for mid-July. This frac program will consist of placing 3,290,000 pounds of ceramic proppant using 173,000 barrels of slick-water. The completion will use 14 plug and perforation stages using a “hesitation” technique which is expected to emulate a 28 stage design.
