Armstrong gauges Williston Lodgepole find

By OGJ editors
HOUSTON, Sept. 11
-- A group led by Armstrong Operating Inc., Dickinson, ND, gauged the Dickinson area’s first Mississippian Lodgepole oil discovery since the late 1990s and plans to drill at least one offset.

Armstrong’s Laurine Engel-1, in 17-139n-96w, Stark County, flowed 463 b/d of oil at 650 psi flowing tubing pressure from 10 ft of perforations. TD is 9,754 ft.

Armstrong, Continental Resources Inc., Enid, Okla., and Jordan Oil & Gas Co., Healdsburg, Calif., control 1,500 gross acres (1,200 net) offsetting the discovery that has potential for more wells.

A play for oil in Lodgepole carbonate mounds flared in this part of the Williston basin in the 1990s after an initial pool discovery in Dickinson field by the former Conoco Inc. in 1993 (OGJ, Aug. 14, 1995, p. 50). Cumulative production totals 55 million bbl of oil and 28 bcf of gas from 41 wells in the greater Dickinson area.
