Slawson has exercised its option to acquire 50% of Samson’s interest in the Billabong well following the successful conclusion to the drill pipe recovery workover.
Frontier Rig 24 has drilled to kick off point of 10,813 feet and is tripping out of the hole to pick up the curve drilling assembly on the Bootleg 7-14-15TFH well. The rig will then skid to Bootleg 6-14-15TFH well to drill the surface and intermediate holes.
The company’s net production for June will be included in next week’s advisory.
Samson’s working interest and its net revenue interest for the North Stockyard Project is set out in the following table:
|Well||Working interest||Net revenue Interest|
|Sail and Anchor 4-13-14HBK||25.028509%||19.146809%|

HAWK SPRINGS PROJECT, GOSHEN COUNTY, WYOMING
Drilling operations have been completed in the Bluff 1-11 well. Preliminary planning for two cased hole tests has been completed and will be presented to the working interest owners for their consideration.
RAINBOW PROJECT, WILLIAMS COUNTY, NORTH DAKOTA
Continental Resources has proposed to drill the Gladys 1-20H, a 1,280 acre lateral (approximately 10,000 feet) in the middle Bakken. Samson has a 23% working interest in this well. This well will be the first in the Rainbow project which is expected to maintain Samson’s production growth following the completion of the North Stockyard infill program towards the end of 2014. Rainbow will currently support a drilling program of up to 14 wells, comprised of 8 wells in the middle Bakken and 6 in the Three Forks. Continental commenced spudding operations of the Gladys 1-20H with a spudder rig on June 27, 2014, and will proceed with the remaining drilling operations on or around July 9, 2014.
