A sharp-eyed reader spotted this in the November 5 Great Falls Tribune:
In Stillwater County, a re-issued permit was approved for Energy Corporation of America to drill the Holman Morse 1-H, a Lakota Formation well with an SHL (surface hole location) at SE SE 12-5S-16E (988 FSL (from south line)/466 FEL (from east line)) and a PBHL (proposed bottom hole location) of 6,200 feet at SW SE 7-5S-17E (502 FSL/2162 FEL).
This is a horizontal permit for the well across from Montana Jack’s in Dean. According to Montana Board of Oil and Gas (BOGC) records, the well was originally permitted on October 31, 2013 and has been renewed twice at six month intervals, on May 1 and again on October 30 of this year.
The permit needs to be re-issued every six months, so it is not clear whether the re-issue is related to future activity at the well.
You can look this up yourself at the BOGC web site. Search under Operator –> Equal to –> Energy Corporation of America. Results will appear down the left side. Click on the “Holman Morse” well.
