Economic development of the Milk River sand requires that each well produce to the maximum of its capabilities. This infers it is highly desirable that initial well completions should be optimized by including the best potentially productive intervals. However, the producible sand lenses in this reservoir have been difficult to detect using conventional log analysis due to the extreme shaliness of the reservoir.
