More wells to be drilled in Continental Resources Springboard project


Continental Resources is pushing ahead with its SCOOP SpringBoard project in a 73-square mile area of Grady County, filing permits this week for a 3-well pad site east of Chickasha.

The permit to drill is for 3 Lambrecht 17-20XHW wells  at 17 7N 5W to be drilled east of Chickasha and southwest of Blanchard along state highway 62. The SpringBoard project was started in 2014 and focused on the Springer, Sycamore and Woodford reservoirs. At the time, the company estimated it had an unrisked resource potential of up to 400 million barrels of oil equivalent.
