Newfield’s pad drilling pays off in Kingfisher county

Houston’s Newfield Energy must have been sitting on a list of completion reports before filing them this week with the Oklahoma Corporation Commission. Regardless, its latest multi-well pad drilling paid off.

Eleven reports were filed by the exploration company—six in Kingfisher County, two in Garvin County, one in Dewey County and two in Canadian county—-showing the company continues to be active in exploring the STACK and SCOOP plays in the state.

None were more than 1,000 barrels a day but still showed strong production, especially in Kingfisher county where the wells showed production of 999, 709,  964, 929, 516 and 878 barrels of oil a day. All six wells were at the same site (9 16N 9W) in the oil-rich area that’s provided success for several companies drilling between Watonga and Kingfisher.

Newfield’s six Wittrock wells were approximately 14 miles east of Watonga near the Omega community. That puts the wells in the area with Hitchcock to the northwest, Loyal to the northeast and Kingfisher to the east and north of state highway 33.

The wells had spud dates of the summer of 2017 with completion made in the past spring of 2018.
