Continental Resources filed recent completion reports on a series of natural gas wells in western Oklahoma. In one case, three wells on a single Custer County pad produced nearly 45,000 Mcf a day of natural gas.
The three Ko Kipp wells are located at 34 15N 14W, or about 3 miles east of the town of Thomas.
Completed in January 2023, the Ko Kipp 2-34-3-10xhm, was the largest producer at 19,175 Mcf of natural gas a day along with 10 barrels of oil. It had a drilled depth of 28,540 feet in the Mississippian formation and a true vertical depth of 13,882 feet according to the completion report. It was spud in September of 2022.
The Ko Kipp 3-34-3-10xhm, with a drilled depth of 28,511 feet, produced 17,270 Mcf of gas a day along with one barrel of oil. Its true vertical depth was 13,848 and the completion report showed a spud in August 2022.
Ko Kipp 4-34-3-10xhw was the third well drilled on the same pad and it produced 8,318 Mcf of natural gas a day from a drilled depth of 29,198 feet. The completion report showed a true vertical depth of 14,662 following a spud in August 2022.
Combined daily production for the three Ko Kipp wells was 44,713 Mcf of natural gas.
Continental Resources also completed two other Custer County wells. The Kaiser Vaugh 3-35-2-11xhm, located at 35 15N 14W,or about a mile from the Ko Kipp wells, produced 24,188 Mcf of natural gas a day and 13 barrels of oil, also from the Mississippian. It had a drilled depth of 28,280 feet upon completion in December 2022.
The well had a true vertical depth of 13,621 feet following a June, 2022 spud according to the completion report.
Another Kaiser Vaugh, the Kaiser Vaugh 4-35-2-11xhw, located at 26 15N 14W, adjacent to the first Kaiser Vaugh well, produced 8,934 Mcf of natural gas and 18 barrels of oil a day. It had a drilled depth of 29,175 feet with a true vertical depth of 14,440 following a July 2022 spud according to the completion report.
That’s a combined production of all five wells of 77,835 Mcf of natural gas a day.
