"I am pretty confident saying that in today's world, operators are taking best practices for drilling and stimulation from other areas / plays and seeing if they "work" in different areas.
The big issues for all these plays are the…"
"What Jay said. Same thing going on in Barnett - that area simply needs higher gas prices, or vastly lower D&C costs, or vastly more effective completions to compete on a ROR basis.
That said, I would love to see what would…"
"I do believe they were looking for "not in the mainstream" plays. The F'ville was just that, and they were hoping to replicate it. The LSBD was thought to carry on in that, but didn't work to their expectation. …"
"If they are still tying up leases in the Haynesville, that would absolutely be a reason. I would be surprised to find a lease here, that's worth having, that isn't HBP. I was told that one of the new companies has said their…"
"One of the issues for non drilling in the FV could be that a lot of the best acreage is HBP and operators don't have to drill to maintain their leases.
They can wait for higher prices down the road.
Your point as to contractor location and…"
"Thanks, and please don't go to any excessive trouble if you do look into it, I'm simply curious. Basically it is what it is. Could even be a simple numbers thing in that there are only 3 large players here, and maybe 2-3…"
"Without doing some intense research, I would guess that the economics of the FV do not compare with the HV right now. And a lot of this is tied to the gas pipeline agreements in each area, i.e. different pricing metrics. I will try to look at this…"
Curious for input for reasons that the Haynesville is doing pretty well, but the F'ville has not had a rig in two years. I know the wells are more productive, but the lower cost of D&C in the F'ville should make it somewhat attractive. Any input?See More
"I noticed the SWN tie in as well. Wondered if maybe the gentleman was involved with the LSBD project and wanted to stay with it? Also noticed Key as a "strategic partner". Companies don't usually list a vendor as a…"
"They've got a pretty nice web site. It list SWN as a "strategic partner". Seems SWN is a minority interest holder in it still? Before everyone was laid off in the F'ville last June I was told that deal was…"
"For full disclosure, that price of gas has no affect on my royalty checks, cause I have no royalties...
However, as an owner of a service business that has spent the last 9 years focused on a gas weighted company in a dry gas field, it's…"
Hello! I hope the site is a place for you to learn, network and contribute. My name is Keith and I started the site in June of 2008 to open up lines of communication between landowners. Since then, we have grown to over 13,000 members.
Because our network has grown word-of-mouth, I want to encourage you to invite your friends and family by clicking here.
There are a couple things you should check out. 1) Check out current discussions. 2) Join in on the County and Parish Groups. By joining a County or Parish, you are networking locally with people who share similar concerns.
Be sure to read up on how to navigate the site HERE. This will help you get the most out of the site.
As a member, should you ever be on the recieving end of crudeness, rudeness or spam, let me know. The site is a peered monitored site and we need your assistance.
As exciting as this is, we know that we have a responsibility to do this thing correctly. After all, we want the farm to remain a place where the family can gather for another 80 years and beyond. This site was born out of these desires. Before we started this site, googling "shale' brought up little information. Certainly nothing that was useful as we negotiated a lease. Read More
