Hello everyone. Hope you’re all doing GREAT these days…
.
Before we get started off with this round of posts on the Haynesville Shale, I just wanted to comment, again, on just how tremendously GREAT the Economy has been, for this part of my State and local area… simply because our local and State Government leaders went ahead and let us go after our OWN NATURAL RESOURCES.
.
Now… compared to most of the country in these hard economic times… it’s just amazing how much of an economic impact the Haynesville Shale has absolutely had on all of us Northwestern Louisianans... TODAY!!!
.

Again I ask President Obama and all those Dems out there… who refuse to let this great country of ours go after our OWN NATURAL RESOURCES in so many productive places here at home… When Are You Going To Wake UP!!!? You’re killing the American dream and this great country of ours by not doing this simple thing. LETTING US DRILL HERE, at home and letting us do it NOW.
.
The NEW ENERGY Policies of President Obama and the Dems are truly admirable goals to shoot for in the long-term future. But they really do nothing for us today or in the near future.
.
The Dems continue to argue that Drilling will not help us for years to come… so let’s just not do it. HELLO!!! This is a flat out LIE! And if they would have gotten off their butts -- YES… Off THEIR Butts… 8 years ago when President Bush tried to get Congress to let us go after our own resources here at home… we would have never seen gas at $4.oo plus a gallon at the pumps last year.
.
I for one still believe that those outrageous energy cost we had to endure last year can be seen, (and back then felt at the pumps,) as the beginning of this massive economy shutdown we find ourselves in today.
.
If nothing else… it sure sent the Auto Industry into the tank… By Itself!
.
Sadly… most Americans have NO FATH in these somewhat low energy prices we enjoy today staying at these prices for too much longer. And when they go back up again -- this time… God Help Us!

* The Shreveport Times website had the following report posted on their website Thursday, April 16, 2009 and it starts off like this…
The Bossier Police Jury once again has postponed the long-proposed law to regulate oil and natural gas production that would be the first in the state, delaying a vote even on parts of the proposal until at least two weeks from now… The industry issues we have had have worked themselves out for now. ... But those issues might be coming," Bossier Parish Attorney Patrick Jackson told police jurors Wednesday…

* CarrolltonLeader.com had this report on their website April 16th and it starts off like this…
The battle last year in Flower Mound between homeowners’ access to their mineral rights and residents’ safety is beginning to have a trickling interest across the state… State Rep. Bryan Hughes (R-Mineola) has authored a bill that would cause municipalities in Texas to compensate landowners who are unable to access their minerals because of unreasonable regulations… House Bill 2110, which was submitted to the house committee on March 2 and discussed in a public hearing April 1, would make a city regulation that takes, damages, destroys, impairs, or prohibits development of a mineral interest subject to the Private Real Property Rights Preservation Act…

* The Shreveport Times had this article posted up on their website last Friday, April 10th and it starts off like this… The recent announcement of a large natural gas deposit in northwest Louisiana, called the Haynesville Shale, could be this century's gold rush - or a fool's gold of hype… The only certainty at this point is that some fortunate landowners already are grinning all the way to the bank, patting their pocketbooks that are thick with lease bonus payments and anticipation of royalty riches if a producing well follows… The Haynesville Shale is being described as one of the richest fields of natural gas ever discovered in this region. But most experts and those connected to the industry agree it's too early to say for sure if the discovery will transform the landscape and economy of parishes that sit atop it… If the shale holds the amount of natural gas that is being predicted, it could mean millions for some landowners, a boom in the natural gas production business in this region, and a trickle-down bounty for communities, schools and others that would receive payments… "The economic impact will be absolutely monstrous if it's as big as it can be," said Don Briggs, president of the Louisiana Oil and Gas Association…

Dynamic today announced that it has successfully drilled and logged the targeted Haynesville interval in its Boyce-Pate 16-1 Well with positive results. This well is strategically located in the east-central section of the Company's Sentell Field in Bossier Parish, Louisiana. This well successfully encountered its Cotton Valley target, logging 66 feet of net gas pay in the Davis Sand intervals before the Company drilled ahead to further evaluate the well's Haynesville potential. The Boyce-Pate 16-1 Well reached a total depth of 11,200 feet on March 21, 2009. This is the third well in the Company's Haynesville development program, and the last of three Haynesville Shale vertical test wells in the Sentell Field planned this year…
