Attempting to learn more and document the process...

I'm a 24 year old one semester away from a Biology degree, not your typical oil and gas researcher. However, I grew up with a grandfather working extensively in the oil field services area, and my uncles were destined to follow. I attended UL in Lafayette, and was introduced to the off shore drilling aspect, and was also made familiar with the business and investment portion of the industry. I was born and raised in the Haughton area, with my family dispursed over Bossier, DeSoto, and Union Parishes. The Haynesville Shale has provided the opprtunity for me to learn more about the day to day practices of the Natural Gas Industry.

I have thoroughly familiarized myself with the onliine data, maps, etc, and now look to gain knowledge by meeting people in the areas involved in the play. I hope to interview landowners, landmen, as well as those involved in the financial aspects. I love to meet new people, and growing up with oil and gas in my blood, it is an area that greatly interests me. If you are interested in voicing any comments, concerns, or suggestions regarding exploration, or my 'documentary' of sorts, please let me know. I hope to gain a variety of viewpoints, from the landowners to the CEO's, and look forward to sharing what I lear with you. Who knows? We may be able to improve upon this process. Thanks in advance, and hope to have an update soon!

I grew up in Union Parish many many years ago. What is the last name of your family that went to Union Parish?

I'm a Newbie here too and totally impressed with your blog. I will read and absorb as much as possible threw you. I dated a landman ones and wish so deeply that I had actually listened to what he was trying to teach me. I told him about needed to learn more about some of our mineral dealings in Louisiana (he worked mostly in West Texas) and now I want to know where MY OLD LANDMAN is...(we both have remarried so I don't think it would be wise to look him up) Sighhhhhhhhh
