Montana: FX to test Bakken in northwest Montana

By OGJ editors
– FX Energy Inc., Salt Lake City, will reenter and deepen a well in northwestern Montana and take samples from the Lodgepole, Bakken, Nisku, and Duperow formations at 4,400-5,500 ft.

The company, which plans to plug the well and keep its findings confidential, said the deepening is the first step in evaluating the potential of the Bakken trend on its holdings. FX Energy hopes to expand its position and is talking with other companies.

The well is in Cut Bank field, which lies in Glacier, Pondera, and Toole counties, Mont. Deepening from the well’s current depth of 3,216 ft will help the company evaluate the hydrocarbon and carbon dioxide potential on its northern Montana acreage.
