Mineral Owner Collaboration
GoHaynesvilleShale.com (GHS) was founded in 2008 as a place for mineral owners to network and learn about leasing and drilling in the Haynesville Shale play. Not long after the land-leasing boom began in 2008, new mineral owners across northwest Louisiana and East Texas joined online forums and began sharing information with each other about the process of oil and gas leasing, leasing bonus payments and well production results. GHS was the first of its kind with over 20,000 members. Since it's launch, the site has also began collaboration on other plays such as the TMS, LSBD, Austin Chalk and the Cotton Valley. In October of 2016 GHS migrated over to its new online home, ShaleForum.com.
