Samson Oil & Gas Operational Advisory
DENVER & PERTH, Australia--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Samson Oil & Gas Limited (ASX: SSN; NYSE MKT: SSN):
NORTH STOCKYARD PROJECT, WILLIAMS COUNTY, NORTH DAKOTA
Rennerfeldt 2-13-H (SSN WI 25.03%)
The Rennerfeldt 2-13-HBK well was drilled to a measured depth of 11,572 feet, where the 7 inch production casing was set and cemented in the middle Bakken.
The forward plan is drill the 3,700 foot lateral to 15,230 feet (MD) and run the production liner.
Rennerfeldt 1-13-H (SSN WI 25.03%)
Rennerfeldt 1-13-H has been drilled to a measured depth of 11,571 feet, where the 7 inch production was set and cemented. The forward operation will be to drill the 3,600 foot lateral in the Middle Bakken once Frontier Rig 24 has completed drilling operations on the Rennerfeldt 2-13-H well.
Tooheys 4-15-14HBK (SSN WI 27.7%)
The Tooheys well is flowing restricted on a 22/64ths choke and has maintained an average oil rate of approximately 800 BOPD over the last 16 days.
Little Creature 3-15-14HBK (SSN WI 27.7%)
The Little Creature well is flowing restricted on a 18/64ths choke and has averaged 435 BOPD over the last 9 days.
Coopers 2-15-14HBK (SSN WI 27.7%)
The Coopers well is flowing on a 18/64ths choke and has averaged 490 BOPD over the last 5 days.
Coopers, Tooheys and Little Creature are located on the Tofte 2 pad on the northern boundary of Section 14
Blackdog 3-13-14H (SSN WI 25.03%)
The preparatory workover on the Blackdog well has been essentially completed, with the workover rig currently undergoing some repair work. The forward plan in this well is to perforate the first frac zone ahead of the arrival of the frac crew.
A coil tubing unit will then be used to drill out the frac plugs in both the Blackdog and Sail and Anchor 1-13-14HBK wells (SSN WI 25.03%), enabling both of these wells to be put into production. 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 1-13-14HBK well (SSN WI 25.03%)
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. The plan is to have a coil tubing unit drill out the frac plugs on Sail and Anchor when fracture stimulation is completed on the Blackdog well.
