Two EOG completions in the southern portion of Parshall Field are now available. On the west side of the field, the Risan 1-34H, sec. 34, 153N-90W, was completed at the end of Sept. for 817 bbls/day. Cumulative from Sept. to Dec. was about 67K bbls oil. About four miles to the SE, the Sampson 1-12H, sec. 12, 152N-90W, was completed at about the same time for 581 bbls/day. Cumulative from Aug. to Dec. was about 39K bbls oil.
Line of the week goes to geologist Paul Jeffcoat-Sacco on the Risan well: "A drill bit is a great tool for destroying a seismic map."
