Winter storm Brutus hits, the place temporarily loses its staffing (even hardy guys have a limit to how hardy they are) and output suffers, and oh heavens the sky must have fallen.
What's this meshugas??? (Craziness)
Going to have to get some major oil & gas pipelines up in that area, shipping the oil by rail will not be enough with the production increases.
Another , “Unexpected?”
Bakken is not going anywhere. If anything, there is not enough infrastructure to keep up with production. The cold weather decrease means nothing in grand scheme of things..
That sounds like nonsense to me.
Why would you build underground pipeline to a well site that needs hydraulic fractured ONE TIME, then not again for years or even more than a decade? Are they fractured at any real frequency in the Bakken?
Just shows the need for pipelines. There are several more pipelines underway. Meanwhile, a winter storm can affect the numbers. Its life in the oil patch.
Cold weather in North Dakota in mid-winter. Who’d’ve thought it?
Seriously, if companies can work in Alaska, they can learn to work in North Dakota. It will just take a little experience and a little adjusting to conditions.
Some of us are old enough to have seen this several times, different plays play out, nothing last forever but it’s amazing how some things last. I’ve got Wolfcamp wells on the south end of the ranch that are over 50 years old that still make a few barrels a day (enough to keep them running). I’ve got Canyon Sands Wells on the north end that come in with 300 to 400 barrels a day but drop of to 15 or 20 within a year. Our upper section Cline Wells north of town are comming in at 400 to 500 per day with some still holding over 100 after a year. The well we’re drilling now is for the lower level Cline and we’ll see what this one does. On the Cline wells we’re making good wet gas and allot of it.
