Samson O&G: Drilling Continues at Gary #1-24H Well

Samson O&G advised that the Nabors 688 rig spudded the Gary #1-24H well on May 24th. As of 0800 hours on May 25th, the rig was drilling at a depth of 2,250 feet. The plan is for the rig to drill to a depth of approximately 2,365 feet, at which point surface casing will be run and cemented into the hole prior to drilling deeper.

The Gary well is located in Township 154N, Range 99W, Section 24 in Williams County, North Dakota. The well will test the prolific middle member of the Mississippian Bakken Formation in the Williston Basin, using the same design that was successfully implemented on the Gene #1-22H well. This will be Samson’s third Bakken well in the North Stockyard Field. The Gary #1-24 well will be drilled as a 5,500 ft horizontal well, with an anticipated total measured depth of 17,000 feet. Based on the previous well drilled by the operator, the Gary #1-24H is expected to take approximately 18 days to drill.
