Hello everyone. Hope you had a GREAT weekend!!!

Let’s get started off with this round of posts on the Haynesville Shale with this article I found posted up on the DenverPost.com website back on Jan. 30th. It starts off like this... Competition from new natural-gas reserves may delay the rebound for Colorado gas production — now at a three-year low, industry analysts and operators say… Emerging shale-gas fields — the Barnett in Texas, the Haynesville in Louisiana and the Marcellus in Pennsylvania and New York - will compete for drilling dollars when the market rebounds… "We are looking at a major realignment of the natural-gas markets," said Pete Stark, vice president for industrial relations at energy consultant IHS Inc. "This is a good thing. It means there is a lot more gas."… It might, however, be less good in the short term for the Rocky Mountain region…

Market Watch.com had this report back on Feb. 4th and it goes in part like this…
Testing the Haynesville Shale in North Louisiana, EOG drilled two horizontal wells on its acreage during 2008. The Martin Timber #2H tested at a rate of 17.4 million cubic feet per day (MMcfd), gross with 4,700 psi flowing tubing pressure. The Bedsole 27#1H tested at a rate of 17.5 MMcfd, gross with 7,400 psi flowing tubing pressure. EOG has 100 and 57 percent working interest in the wells, respectively. Due to pipeline limitations, the wells are currently producing at a combined restricted rate of 17 MMcfd until additional infrastructure is in place. EOG has estimated net reserve potential of 3 to 4 trillion cubic feet of natural gas on its 116,000 net acres and expects to drill 14 Haynesville wells in 2009.

The Moseley 14 - 1H, located in Red River Parish, Louisiana, produced into the sales line at a rate of 14 MMcfe/d with 6,500 psi flowing casing pressure while still cleaning up frac load. Forest has a 100% working interest in this well… Forest holds approximately 3,800 net acres around the drillsite. Forest has approximately 140,000 gross (106,000 net) acres in the Haynesville/Bossier play and intends to operate a two rig program to drill 10 - 12 horizontal Haynesville/Bossier shale wells and participate in 2 - 3 non-operated wells during 2009.

CHRON.com had the following report posted on their website, Feb. 11thand it starts off like this… The natural gas industry faces low prices, high stockpiles and an onshore rig count that is falling fast - but the head of the nation’s largest natural gas producer is optimistic… “We only need gas prices to be ‘good’ for three to six months every two-year period,” Chesapeake Energy Chief Executive Aubrey McClendon told reporters Wednesday at the Cambridge Energy Research Association’s annual CERAWeek oil and gas conference in Houston. “Then we’d be happy for them to fall to benefit consumers and affect our competitors.”… During a presentation at the conference, McClendon said his company believes “the fix is in for an oversupply,” referring to the boom in onshore production in natural gas shale plays where his company is among the most aggressive players… That boom pushed natural gas production up by as much as 6 percent last year, but recession-weakened demand and prices that are down more than 60 percent from 2008 highs led to high stockpiles…
