MDU Resources Group, Inc. (NYSE:MDU) has announced that its wholly owned subsidiary, Fidelity Exploration & Production Company, reached a new Bakken production record of over 3,500 net barrels of oil per day from its operated wells. Including its non-operated production, the peak rate is now over 5,000 net barrels of oil per day.

The company continues to drill strong wells on its Mountrail County acreage. The most recent eight wells are listed below:






Initial 24-hour rate (gross BOEPD)

Clifford 14-24H-25     Bakken     1,957

Lori 18-19H     Three Forks     804

Additionally, the drilling operations continue to improve with the most recent long-lateral horizontal well, the Lance 21-22-27, being drilled in a record 28 days from spud to rig release.
