05:02 EDTSSNSamson Oil & Gas provides operational advisory
The infill development plan for North Stockyard consists of 8 middle Bakken wells that have been drilled and 22 Three Forks wells. The Three Forks wells consist of 8 First Bench Three Forks wells, 6 Second Bench Three Forks wells, and 8 Third Bench Three Forks wells. Frontier Rig 24 has set and cemented the 9-5/8 inch surface casing on the Bootleg 8-14-15TF2H. Presently, the intermediate section of the wellbore is being drilled at depth of 10,397 feet. Bootleg 8 is the first well in the North Stockyard field to target the Second Bench of the Three Forks. Spacing approval has been received for a total of 22 wells in the Three Forks Formation and therefore will maintain a development drilling program over the forthcoming 2 years within the North Stockyard Field. The Bootleg 5-14-15TFH frack has been completed. A total of 35 stages were successfully completed with 8.15 million pounds of sand placed. The Bootleg 4-14-15TFH frack is underway and the plan is to fracture stimulate 28 stages with a total of 4.5 million pounds of sand. A rig is on site repairing the liner on the Matilda Bay 1, but the operation has been temporarily suspended to shut-in the well for the Bootleg 4 and 5 fracks. Following the fracture stimulation the work–over will reconvene. The Matilda Bay 2 is currently shut-in for the Bootleg 4 and 5 fracks.

05:05 EDTSSNSamson Oil & Gas reports Nov. production 639 BOEPD
The North Stockyard field saw an increase in production for November as wells were returned to production. We are expecting that the field will be largely “on stream” in January 2015 as the infill development comes to a close. In-field operations has necessitated, for safety and operational reasons, existing wells to be shut in whilst this activity was undertaken. With the completion of Ironbank 6 expected later this week, Frontier 24 will be laid down and no further drilling in the field is contemplated in light of the recent slide in the oil price. We are however anticipating that the existing inventory of 3 wells will be fracked, and the 5 wells that have been fracked will require a clean out. This means that 8 wells will be brought on line in the near term.
