Drilling Activity Summary


A Niobrara completion in the Piceance Basin by WPX Energy flowed 11.8 million cu. ft. of gas per day. The #702-23-HN1 Bosely SG is in Section 23-7s-96w of Garfield County, Colo. Production is from a 4,883-ft. horizontal lateral extending southward to 14,370 ft., 9,062 ft. true vertical, with a bottomhole in Section 26-7s-96w. The flowing casing pressure was 5,700 psi with no choke size reported. The venture was fracture stimulated in 19 stages. To optimize the performance of the reservoir, according to Tulsa-based WPX, the well has since been choked back to 8 million cu. ft. of gas per day at a flowing tubing pressure of 5,400 psi.
