What is the average Btu/cf of Haynesville Shale gas? Also, how does the Btu factor listed on the check stub relate to the Btu/cf of the gas?
FXEF, the limited available information indicates wellhead gross heating value is +/- 1000 Btu/Scf. The Btu factor on the check stub should be similar.
If I understand correctly, a Btu factor of .999 would indicate 999 Btu/cf and a Btu factor of 1.015 would be 1015 Btu/cf.
I have read that some Marcellus wells have a high Btu content and the Btu has be lower before entering pipelines. By them lowering the Btu is that just lost energy?
FXEF, the GHV of the Marcellus varies significantly from northeast to southwest with the southwestern production being higher and requiring to be processed before delivery to the gas sales pipeline. The energy is not lost as it is associated with the recovered natural gas liquids.
My well in DeSoto Parish, Holly field ranges from .999 to 1.016 BTU factor.
Thanks. The wells I am referring to are in Bossier, so maybe I shouldn't be surprised the Btu factors vary across the Haynesville play. I'll narrow my question to Bossier Parish and ask if anyone is willing to report their Btu factors for Bossier wells. Thanks.
