Blaine County wells produce for Devon Energy

Devon's 2019 drilling efforts pay off in 2021 in Oklahoma's STACK – Oklahoma Energy Today


Nearly four months after completion, Devon Energy is reporting two Blaine County wells on a single pad with nearly 1,700 barrels of oil a day in production. They represent the Oklahoma energy company’s latest production in the STACK play.

The Dickson 21_16-15n-10w 3hx and the Dickson 21_16-15n-10w 4hx, located at 21 15N 10W, a site about 9 miles southeast of the city of Watonga were completed in December 2021.

The Dickson 21_16-15n-10w 3hx had production of 990 barrels of oil a day and 2,563 Mcf of natural gas from a depth of 21,231 feet. It had a spud date eleven months earlier in January of 2021 according to its completion report.

The Dickson 21_16-15n-10w 4hx had production of 698 barrels of oil a day and 1,984 Mcf of natural gas from a drilled depth of 21,219 feet. It too had a January spud date according to its completion report that was filed this week with Oklahoma regulators.

Combined oil production was 1,688 barrels of oil a day.

In Devon’s recent 4th quarter financial report, the company laid out its 2022 intentions for exploration in the Anadarko Basin, saying it averaged 78,000 Boe a day during 2021. It operated only two drilling rigs during the year in the basin by a $100 million drilling carry with Dow. As a result of the carry, Devon spudded 31 wells and 16 started first production during 2021.

Devon stated it also planned to increase drilling activity in 2022 with a three-rig drilling program, hoping to bring online nearly 40 new wells in its acreage position.
