Samson’s Gretel II Well Expected to Come Online This Week

Hawk Springs Project, Goshen County, Wyoming

Spirit of America US34 #2-29, (SSN 100% WI)

The Spirit of America #2 well was drilled into granitic basement at a total depth of 10,634 feet. The well was logged and a production liner is in the process of being run to around 10,100 feet and cemented. Quantitative log analysis is being undertaken which will be used to finalise a cased hole testing program. The forward plan for the drilling rig is to run the liner, cement it and then run production tubing and a packer such that the balance of the production test can be conducted using wireline equipment.

The well is currently pumping and has been on stream for 8 days. The oil rate has ranged from 244 BOPD to 79 BOPD with an average rate of 147 BOPD. The well has experienced a decline in oil rate and oil cut over this period. This is contrary to the early production history of offsetting Bakken wells in the region, but production may improve due to the requirement to reduce the hydrostatic pressure on the reservoir and to reduce frac and kill fluid saturation in the near wellbore.

The production facilities have been installed and the well is expected to be put on pump this week.

After my first job at a newspaper -- delivering papers for the Jackson (TN) Sun, ink was in my veins. Since the 1970's I've worked in every area of the Printing and Publishing industry, with most of that time spent in the pressroom. In 2008 I moved to Montana and purchased the Sun Times of Fairfield ( In 2011 I realized that most media outlets were either ignoring, or attacking, the growing oil and gas industry in Montana, so I started the Montana Oil Report as the source of information on this important industry.
