Our new TOP WELL REPORT feature has been reporting on the top oil and natural gas wells drilled in Western Canada for the last couple of months, and today we look at the best Clearwater oil wells from the month of September. As always, we use calendar day production metrics so these are real volumes produced in the month.
The list of the top 15 Clearwater oil wells based on production from the month of September is below. You can also click here to view the wells all on one map provided by Petro Ninja, or click on the UWIs individually.
- Baytex Energy dominated the list this month with 10 of the top 15 producing wells. The company’s top well had an average daily rate of 1,078 bbl/d of oil over the month, which was actually the top oil well in Western Canada, not just the top Clearwater oil well.
- All 10 of those Baytex wells came off of the same pad, as you can see in the map below. These wells are located in the Peavine area, and are coloured red on the first map. All of Baytex’s Clearwater wells in the immediate vicinity dating back to the start of 2020 are on the second map below, coloured black.
- Canadian Natural Resources has ramped up their activity levels in the Clearwater over the course of 2022, and has been drilling some excellent wells. CNRL had 4 of the top 15 wells in September, coming from the Smith/Marten Hills area.
- Headwater Exploration rounded out the top 15 Clearwater wells with an impressive well at Marten Hills that had an average daily rate of 438 bbl/d of oil.
