-- Whiting Petroleum Corp., Denver, plans to add a fifth rig by mid-November at its 225,000-net acre Lewis & Clark prospect in Stark, Billings, and Golden Valley counties, ND.

The Froelich 44-9TFH well flowed at 1,832 b/d of oil and 1.5 MMcfd of gas with 824 psi flowing casing pressure on a 42/64-in. choke from the Three Forks formation at 10,500 ft true vertical depth after 28 frac stages using the plug and perf method.

The Kubas 11-13TFH well, 5 miles northeast of the Froehlich well, made 1,780 b/d and 1.035 MMcfd with 520 psi FCP on a 46/64-in. choke from Three Forks after 21 sliding sleeve frac stages and 8 plug and perf frac stages.

Whiting has 90% working interest in both wells, which are in Stark County on the southeastern part of the prospect. Four more wells are under completion on the prospect.
