Samson Oil & Gas Ltd. (NYSE: SSN) provided an update on its operations at its North Stockyard Project in Williams County, N.D.
Little Creature 1-15-14H
Since the company's last report, the curved portion of the Little Creature 1-15-14H well was successfully drilled and landed in the Middle Bakken Formation at 11,895 feet. A 7-inch intermediate casing string was set and cemented at 11,885 feet. Currently Frontier Rig 24 is drilling the 6-inch production hole at a depth of 13,254 feet representing the initial 1,359 feet of lateral. The lateral portion of the well bore is positioned in the Middle Bakken Formation and will be drilled to a measured depth of 19,668 feet. Samson has 27.7% working interest in Little Creature 1-15-14H.
Following the completion of Little Creature well, it is currently planned that the Frontier 24 rig will move back to the Tofte 1 pad and drill Blackdog. This well will be a middle Bakken lateral and is expected to follow the previously planned Swan trajectory that is the infill location between the Rodney 1-14H well (27.18% working interest) and the Sail and Anchor 1-13-14HBK well (25.03% working interest). Samson has 25.03% working interest in Blackdog 3-13-14H.
Key Energy Services Rig 370 is temporarily halting workover operations on the Billabong 2-13-14HBK well to accommodate mobilization of Frontier Rig 24 back on the pad to drill Blackdog 3-13-14H. The rig successfully recovered eight additional joints of drill pipe since the last update or 41% of the total. Operations are expected to continue to remove the drill pipe using the wash-over assembly method once Slawson has completed drilling operations. Samson has 25.03% working interest in Billabong 2-13-14HBK.
