Operating out of their Denver office, Newfield Production (Newfield) has revealed the completion results of a Green River/Wasatch wildcat located approximately 1 mile north of Myton Bench Field in Duchesne County, Utah. The firm has announced that the Lusty #14-2-3-3W, se-sw 2-3s-3w, was reported initially flowing 270 bopd, 282 mcfgpd, and 407 bwpd from the Wasatch between 8,968’ and 10,210’. Drilled in mid-2012, Newfield’s new completion bottomed in the Wasatch at 10,930’. During its first nine months on-line (between August 2012 and April 2013), the company reported this venture had produced 21.3 k bo, 17.1 mmcfg, and 43.9 bw.
The Lusty #14-2-3-3W is located approximately a half-mile northwest of two wells that Newfield drilled from the same pad in the fall of 2012. The Lusty #1-11-3-3W, ne-ne 11-3s-3w, is a vertical test that tapped the Wasatch at 11,030’. No data has been released on this tight hole; however, the company reported the well was put into production in April 2012 and through April 2013 had recovered 24.7 k bo, 19 mmcfg, and 33.9 bw from the Wasatch.
The second producer, the Lusty #2-11-3-3WH, ne-ne 11-3s-3w, was drilled horizontally to the Green River at 13,438’. This confidential well is believed to have a bottom-hole location in the sw-se 11-3s-3w. Testing results for the Lusty #2-11-3-3WH are also being held tight, but Newfield reported that between January 2013 and April 2013, their completion had cumulated 41.4 k bo, 47.7 mmcfg, and 18.7 k bw from a Green River lateral.
Roughly a mile southeast of the Lusty #14-2-3-3W is Newfield’s Odekirk #11-12-3-3W, ne-sw 12-3s-3w. After bottoming in the Wasatch at a total depth of 10,476’, this vertical producer initially flowed 1.1 k bopd, 1.1 mcfgpd, and 858 bwpd from the Wasatch between 8,648’ and 10,058’. From its first production in April 2012 through April 2013, the well has produced 82.1 k bo, 88 mmcfg, and 135.5 k bw from the Wasatch, and has a daily average of 90 bopd, 156.5 mcfgpd, and 197.2 bwpd.
Nearly 1.5 miles southwest of Newfield’s Lusty #14-2-3-3W is the operator’s Gilbert #9-9-3-3W, ne-se 9-3s-3w, which initially flowed 586 bopd, 632 mcfgpd, and 784 bwpd from the vertical Wasatch interval at 8,769’–10,394’. Between March 2012 and April 2013, this endeavor had cumulated 52.8 k bo, 75.4 mmcfg, and 113.5 bw.
Less than a mile northwest of their Gilbert #9-9-3-3W, Newfield has reached TD at the Patterson #4-9-3-3WH-W15, nw-nw 9-3s-3w. This horizontal venture was slated to reach a total measured depth of 14,264’ and was expected to evaluate the Wasatch. Bottom-hole location for the Patterson #4-9-3-3WH-W15 was slated to land near the sw-sw 9-3s-3w. Listed as confidential, no additional information is available regarding this wellsite.
The Odekirk #11-12-3-3W and the Gilbert #9-9-3-3W are located in North Myton Bench Field. Newfield operates the majority of the 44 producing wells in this reservoir, which was discovered in 2010. Through April 2013, this pool had cumulated 1.6 mmbo, 1.7 bcfg, and 2 mmbw.
Roughly 3 miles north of Newfield’s new completion at the Lusty #14-2-3-3W is the Altamont/Bluebell field complex, a structural trap that was discovered in 1949. Now one of the largest fields in the Uinta Basin, more than 1,000 wells have recovered in excess of 312 mmbo and 538 bcfg from the Green River and Wasatch at depths between 5,500’ and 15,000’.
