Marathon Brings Its Rig Count Up To Four
Apparently making good on its earlier statement that it would bring five new-build rigs into the Bakken play, Marathon has added its third in Dunn Co. with the addition of Helmrich & Payne 257. This rig has spudded the Carlson 21-29H, sec 29, T.146, R.94 in Bailey Field. The two other Helmrich & Payne rigs are making hole within a few miles of this well. Marathon's fourth rig is drilling the Nelson well in Mountrail Co.
