In his note he mentioned, with regard to CLR's Chicago/Syracuse wells, and the Atlanta pad in the Williston oil field:
The landscaping CLR did is applauded amongst the locals I've heard too which is great to hear. Looks like 14+ pads are going to be a thing of the past... 20+ pads are in the works for 2013.To say the least, this is huge, and very, very interesting. Anyone who lives in oil country knows how much farmland is lost due to scoria/gravel roads to well sites. A single road to a 20-well pad is an incredible savings compared to twenty individual roads going to twenty different sites.
Robb has his own site. When you get to the site, robbsiverson.com, click on the photograph at the right, and then click again on the aerial photograph (or go directly here: Robb Siverson aerial photography). Specifically, at his home page, robbsiverson.com, the image to the right is of the Chicago/Syracuse cluster in the Banks. By the way, his web page is permanently linked at my "data links" page.
********************************Note: I don't particularly care for the note that follows, but in light of what Robb sent (above), I thought I needed to post the note below as background. The note below was written earlier today, but I put it in draft, not sure if I would post it.
Tomorrow there will be two very nice CLR wells coming off the confidential list, the two CLR Syracuse wells in the Banks oil field. The Banks oil field is in northeastern McKenzie County which Mike Filloon recently addressed in his article about CLR.
I believe the Charlotte wells in this field are targeting/testing the four benches of the Three Forks.
So, needless to say, the results of these two wells will be interesting. Checking out the location of these wells, it was incredible to see the amount of activity in this immediate area. The list below are the wells in a line less than 3.4 miles long, stretching west to east.
