A few oil and gas wells have been drilled in Oklahoma in the past several months as the COVID-19 has left the industry badly weakened. But recent filings of completion reports with the Oklahoma Corporation Commission showed Oklahoma City-based Continental Resources is somewhat back in action, reporting four wells from a single pad with combined production of 1,400 barrels of oil a day.
The wells are in Grady County where Continental has been active for years in the SCOOP and Merge plays. The largest of the Jacquez wells had production of 564 barrels of oil a day.
The wells are located at 18 7N 5W which is a site east of Chickasha and about 2 miles southwest of the Middleberg community and just north of highway 62. Three of the wells were completed in February and March as the COVID-19 pandemic began its disastrous effect on the oil and gas industry. One of the wells wasn’t completed until July, 2020.
The July well had production of 212 barrels of oil a day and 314 Mcf of natural gas. It actually had a spud date of July 2019 with drilling finished in August 2019. Completion wasn’t made until July 17, 2020. The well had a drilling depth of 20,130 feet in the Woodford formation.
A second Jacquez well had production of 419 barrels of oil and 504 Mcf of natural gas from 20,663 feet in the Woodford formation. Its spud date was in August 2019 with drilling finished in September 2019 and completion made in February 2020.
A third well produced 204 barrels of oil a day and 431 Mcf of natural gas from a depth of 20,270 feet in the Woodford. It had a July 2019 spud date and drilling was finished in August 2019. Completion was made in February 2020 but the first production didn’t happen until July 2020.
The fourth Jacquez produced 564 barrels of oil a day and 890 Mcf of natural gas from a drilling depth of 19,350 in the Woodford formation. It had an August 2019 spud date with drilling finished in September 2019. Completion was made in March 2020 but first production wasn’t reported until July 29, 2020.
Calyx Energy III LLC recently completed a gas well in Hughes County. The Hamilton 2-14-wh, located at 14 8N 12E, a site southeast of Wetumka near the Canadian River. The well had production of 9,359 Mcf of gas and had an April 7, 2020 completion date in the Woodford formation. It had a drilling depth of 15,251 feet with a January spud date.
