Our Operations

Operations Update

18 May 2018:

After finishing the drilling of the four new wells from the Hovencamp pad, we commenced completion operations on 2 May. The four wells, the J.C. Davis 1 and 2 and the Hovencamp 1 and 2, were each drilled to an average horizontal lateral length of 7500 feet, and we plan to hydraulically fracture each well about 30 times. Schlumberger is doing this work again, and as of today we have pumped all 30 fracture stimulation stages on the two J.C. Davis wells, and the first twelve stages on each of the Hovencamp wells. The wells are being more aggressively stimulated than our prior Wilson wells with twice as many perforation clusters inside of each stage. This results in the wells being stimulated every 20 feet along the lateral as opposed to every 40 feet in the Wilson wells. We expect this to yield even better results than before.

After the pumping of the J.C. Davis stimulations, the Wilson 1 and 2 wells have had some fluid from those operations enter the wellbores. As a precaution we have shut in both Wilson wells so as not to produce the excess fluid while the fracture operations are going on. This is a normal operation that occurs when wells are being stimulated in close proximity to producing wells. The Wilson wells will be put back into production when the hydraulic fracturing has been completed, which we expect to be in about another 5-7 days. When the Wilson wells were shut in, they were still producing the previously reported rate of about 320 barrels of oil equivalent each.

After the Schlumberger hydraulic fracturing work has been completed, workover equipment will drill out the plugs that isolate the individual stages and we will install tubing to produce the wells. We expect this to be completed in early June after which we will commence the cleanup of the wells into test equipment. In the meantime, we are building the production facilities and expect to have oil and gas production in June.
