ConocoPhillips sets state, North American drilling records at CD5

ConocoPhillips Alaska has set North American and Alaska drilling records at the CD5 drill site in the Colville River unit. The company said earlier today that its CD5-25 well set the North American land-based well drilling record for the longest horizontal lateral, 21,748 feet. The well was drilled by Doyon Rig 19.

The well has a true vertical depth of some 7,900 feet and the record-setting lateral was drilled in the Alpine A sand.

The company also set two state of Alaska records at the well: for total combined lateral length and total combined footage for a well. The combined length of the two laterals, in the Alpine A sand and Alpine C sand, was 34,211 feet. The total combined footage for the well was a state record at 42,993 feet, the company said.
