Brigham Exploration Company (BEXP) reported the completion of two Bakken Shale wells during the second quarter of 2010 at its Rough Rider project area in the Williston Basin.
The Michael Owan 26-35 #1H well had an early 24-hour peak flow back rate of 2,931 barrels of oil equivalent (BOE), composed of 2,640 barrels of oil per day and 1.75 million cubic feet of gas per day. The well was completed with a 33 stage hydraulic fracturing operation.
The Sedlacek Trust 33-4 #1 well had an early 24-hour peak flow back rate of 2,695 BOE, composed of 2,413 barrels of oil per day and 1.69 million cubic feet of gas per day. The well was completed with a 30 stage hydraulic fracturing operation.
Brigham Exploration Company also reported the completion of the Rogney 17-8 #1H Bakken Shale well at the company’s project area in Roosevelt County, Montana. The Rogney 17-8 #1H had an early 24-hour peak flow back rate of 909 BOE. The company said that the production on the well was lower because the well was under stimulated during parts of the completion operation.
The company plans to spud the Gobbs 17-8 well in November 2010. This well is located five miles from the Rogney 17-8 #1H well.
Brigham Exploration Company also participated with a small working interest in the Luke Sweetman well, which had an early 24-hour peak flow back rate of 1,201 BOE per day.
