At the NDIC hearings later this month, Tracker Rescources of Denver has requested that Little Knife Field be expanded on its east side to include a whopping 80 sections (yes, that's eight-zero, if I counted correctly) for the purpose of drilling Bakken H-wells on 1,280 acre spacing. The overall area of the application spans from T144N to 148N, all in R97W. Now, I may be a tad skeptical, but I have my doubts that Tracker has the substantial working interest or has agreements with other interest owners to justify the inclusion of all this property in its application . . . but I may be wrong and we'll have to wait and see.
If this latest area is set up for development, it will mean that virtually about 20 townships in Dunn Co., will be under spacing unit or drilling unit guidelines for development, essentially stretching from the western to the eastern county lines between 144N to 147N. I guess this is a good example of what development of a continuous reservoir looks like.
