NORTH STOCKYARD PROJECT, WILLIAMS COUNTY, NORTH DAKOTA
Blackdog 3-13-14H (SSN WI 25.03%)
Frac operations in the Blackdog well are expected to commence on January 30th. Following the completion of the stimulation treatment, a coil tubing unit will be used to drill out the frac plugs in both the Blackdog and Sail and Anchor 1-13-14HBK wells (SSN WI 25.03%). These wells are located on the Tofte 1 pad, which is on the southern boundary of Section 13 within the North Stockyard project. Sail and Anchor was fracked in September 2013 and has been flowed back previously, though that prior flow back is believed to have been restricted by the frac plugs.
