The top conventional well in Saskatchewan in May belonged to Vermilion Energy.
That’s according to a top ten list compiled by BlincSoftware, which put together this graphic from data provided by the Saskatchewan Ministry of Energy and Resources. Much more detailed information can be found at BlincSoftware’s Canadian Petroleum Registry.
According to the Saskatchewan Mining and Petroleum GeoAtlas, that top well is 102/05-09-001-03-W2 05-10-001-03-W2. The well is roughly three miles northwest of the Port of Northgate, the US border crossing port on Highway 9. It’s within spitting distance of the US border. And it’s also the same well that topped the charts in March. Except in March, daily production was 541 barrels per day, and in May, it hit 601 barrels per day.
You had to jump across the province to the Maidstone area to find the second highest-producing conventional well in Saskatchewan. That was 101/16-16-048-23-W3 11-21-048-23-W3, belonging to Canadian Natural Resources. It’s four miles due north of Maidstone on Highway 21. It produced 411 bpd.
The third place well is owned by Whitecap Resources, located 14 miles southwest of Kipling. That well is 101/01-16-6006-12-W2 05-09-06-12-W2. The general area has also seen drilling from Crescent Point and Cache Island Corp. This well produced 314 bpd.
In total, Whitecap had three of the top ten wells, CNRL had two. Tundra Oil & Gas had one, as did Baytex Energy, Rife Resources, Axial Exploration and the aforementioned Vermillion. Six wells were on the eastern side of the province, and four were on the western side.
