Completion reports filed this week with the Oklahoma Corporation Commission show there is still some drilling interest in the state, including one well completed just days before the advent of the coronavirus pandemic.
Gulfort Midcon LLC reported completion of two sister wells at 32 5N 5W, a site about 2 miles southwest of the Grady County community of Bradley. The combined production of the two North Ryan wells in the Woodford formation was 979 barrels of oil a day.
The first had production of 534 barrels of oil a day and 3,465 Mcf of natural gas with a May 2019 spud date and completion not made until February 2020 from a depth of 21,213 feet.

The most recent well was one drilled in Custer County with completion made in March of this year. Toklan Oil and Gas Corp., the Tulsa company which has had success with exploratory wells in the Cottage Grove Sand of the region completed a well six miles northwest of the town of Thomas.
The Jones 24-25 hcg 1, located at 24 15N 16W had production of 203 barrels of oil a day and only 18 Mcf of natural gas. It had a January 14, 2020 spud date and drilling was finished a month later with completion made March 11 of this year from a depth of 14,407 feet.
The completion came on the same day that the coronavirus stopped the start of the NBA game in Oklahoma City between the Thunder and the Utah Jazz and resulted in a fast shut-down of much of the state.
Toklan Oil survived a 2012 Chapter 11 bankruptcy caused by its connections with a California bank failure and real estate development.
