THE GHS HAYNESVILLE SHALE RIG TRACKER.  2022

I'll update each week so we can follow the rig count.  I am only counting rigs drilling the Haynesville and Bossier formations.  Many industry rig numbers are for the "Haynesville Area",  however they may defined that, and includes wells drilling other formations.

I don't know anything about Aethon, but they have 14 rigs running in the Haynesville?

Aethon is a private company so no corporate presentations and few press releases.  The rig count is not an accurate indicator of the company's Haynesville leasehold.  Aethon acts as the JV operator for Black Stone Minerals so I don't think there is any Aethon leasehold in Angelina and San Augustine counties.  That accounts for 8 rigs and possibly an additional one in Shelby County.  The rigs in Bienville, Bossier and DeSoto are drilling on Aethon leasehold acquired from Questar and J-W Operating.  Aethon has been rumored to be looking for a buyer but has not found one.  The company is now rumored to be looking at the possibility of an IPO and going public.

interesting.  thanks.

I sorta agree, Jay, although I don't think there's much depth to any anti-industry ax grinding due to the fact that most savvy politicians, and even the driving public, grok the reality of the USofA needing reliable energy sources, e.g., of us needing easy fill-ups at gas stations, unlike what walloped us in the '80s with long lines to fill our tanks across America.

In other words, I honestly don't think the public blames the oil companies. The majors didn't create this economic chaos. A guy named Putin did. That's where the blame sticks, if you ask me.

Now, that said, I agree Aethon could be left standing at the alter. That's true. Aethon is quite a sneaky corporation because it's game book isn't cut-and-dry transparent. Also, it seems to me that they've been putting a lot of spit and shine on their books per the Ashland Field step out, along with their other aggressive drilling plans across numerous parishes/counties.

Yep, they're sneaky. It's like someone sprucing up a used Hummer with an expensive wax/detail job.

Yet when we then shift to the glass being half full, if I was to place a bet on a buyer, my first go-to would be CNPC since the Chinese are deep-pocket aggressive and like to domineer a high-demand market. Plus, their state-funded intelligence calculations probably skew toward Russia continuing to be gagged via the curtailment of its petro exports, especially the highly desirable NG flows into the EU. Aethon would make for a sweet hedge for China.

But then again, there could also be an unknown geopolitical gambit that I'm blind to in regards to CNPC gobbling up Aethon. If so, then I'd put a Vegas bet on a seven sister. Maybe even XTO.
