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.

20:02 EDTSSNSamson Oil & Gas provides operational update
The Bluff 1-11 well was perforated within the 9,500 sand over the interval 7,738 to 7,754 feet, and the well unloaded the completion brine almost immediately and flowed non inflammable gas at a rate of 8 MMcfpd. The rate was relatively constant during the 41 hour flow period. The well flowed on a 20 or 21/64ths inch choke at a tubing pressure of between 2,500 and 2,600 psig that increased during the flow period. No formation water was evident. Gas samples were taken and are in the process of being analyzed. The well is currently shut in for approximately 10 days whilst the pressure response is measured. The gas flow was not able to be ignited, and based on our previous samples was most likely largely nitrogen as determined from the analysis of the wire line logs. The data being collected in the near term includes the shut in pressure data, and the sample analysis. This process is expected to take three weeks after which we will have a clearer view as to the possible commercial benefit of this discovery.
