Water well crew in South Dakota town strikes oil instead

Bob, Same formations or same depths? Same depths would put you into precambrian rock in Perkins county.  (Dec 31, 2011 | post #22)

Water well crew in South Dakota town strikes oil instead

The wells in Perkins County were drilled to the Red River formation, which was the formation of interest at the time. A lot of wells had oil shows but nothing economical. Doesn't seem very likely that crews that drilled to deep would be fired, the well was permitted to a certain depth and that's all the deeper they drilled.  (Dec 31, 2011 | post #20)

Any News on the Oil and Gas Situation Around Faith?

The Bakken does not extend as far south as Sturgis, SD. If fact it subcrops 50 miles north of the SD/ND border. Nakota Energy was interested in drilling up by Faith after the water well hit oil, I believe they did permit a few wells and drilled at least one. Don't quote me on that.  (Dec 31, 2011 | post #2)
