An op-ed piece by Don Briggs with some "cautiously optimistic" stats. Of course, I would prefer a 75% glass full, or a 90% glass full POV, but, hey, hysterical pessimism is limited my vocabulary and not a habit of my practice. Enjoy! 80)http://www.theadvertiser.com/article/20100321/BUSINESS/3210314

"Louisiana's recovery in drilling activity has consistently outperformed all U.S. drilling activity
. Of course, the Haynesville Shale activity in Northwest Louisiana is the shinning star responsible for this growth. Currently, there are 138 rigs drilling in Northwest Louisiana, up from 73 drilling this time last year. Projections for the next six months estimate that another 20 rigs could be added to the Northwest Louisiana fleet."
