Paloma scores on 3 Blaine County wells

Oklahoma’s STACK play keeps coming up with big producers as completion reports filed this week showed three sister wells with combined oil production of nearly 2,000 barrels a day.

It was in Blaine County where Paloma Operating Co. LLC, based in Houston drilled the three Big Nugget 9_4-15N 13W wells. The site is at 9 15N 13W or about 10 miles southwest of the city of Watonga.

The first of the wells had production of 669 barrels of oil a day and 4,728 Mcf of natural gas. Its spud date was March of 2019 and drilling finished in June with completion in November 2019 from a depth of 22,426 feet.

The second well produced 749 barrels of oil and 4,824 Mcf of gas from a depth of 22,118 feet in the Mississippian formation. Spud date was June 2019 and drilling ended in July and completion was made in November 2019.

The last Big Nugget well produced 500 barrels a day and 3,152 Mcf of natural gas from a depth of 22,409 feet. Its spud date was in July 2019 and drilling ended in September with completion made in November 2019.

Nearly all of the Paloma wells operated or leased in Oklahoma are in the STACK counties of Blaine, Canadian and Kingfisher.

But Marathon Oil wasn’t so fortunate in its Blaine county drilling endeavour. It had to plug the Olive June 1710 2-22-15mxh well after a September 2018 spud date.

“During drilling got stuck two times; determined uneconomical to continue drilling; set plugs and abandoned well,” stated the completion report.

The well was located at 27 17N 10W or about 6 miles southeast of Hitchcock.
