Haynesville gas flows as high as 28 MMcfd

By OGJ editors
HOUSTON, Dec. 9 -- Three operators reported new horizontal completions in Jurassic Haynesville shale at rates as high as 28.2 MMcfd of gas.

The three companies, Petrohawk Energy Corp. of Houston and Comstock Resources Inc. and EXCO Resources Inc. of the Dallas area, plan much more activity in the Haynesville in East Texas and Northwest Louisiana.

Petrohawk reported the 28.2 MMcfd rate at its Sample 9-1 in 9-14n-11w, Red River Parish, La., about 12 miles south of Elm Grove gas field. The rate came on a 30/64-in. choke with 7,100 psi flowing casing pressure.

Petrohawk's Brown 17-4 in 17-16n-11w, Bossier Parish, gauged 23.4 MMcfd on a 26/64-in. choke with 7,700 psi FCP. And its Goodwin 9-5 in 9-16n-11w, Bossier Parish, made 21.1 MMcfd on a 26/64-in. choke with 6,750 psi FCP.

The company plans to complete five more Haynesville shale wells by yearend 2009.

Initial flow rate is 9 MMcfd at Comstock's BSMC LA 7-1H well in Toledo Bend North field, De Soto Parish. The flow came from a 4,300-ft lateral at 11,750 ft true vertical depth after a 10-stage frac.

Comstock is running another 10-stage frac at its Collins LA 15-1H well in Logansport field, also in De Soto. It has a 4,200-ft leg at 11,350 ft. The company has a 22% interest in the Gamble 24-1H well at Logansport, drilled to 11,800 ft TVD with a 3,950-ft lateral.

Comstock has drilled the vertical portion of two other Haynesville wells. Bogue A-6H in Waskom field in Harrison County is to get a 4,000-ft lateral, and Green 13H in Blocker field in Harrison County is to get a 3,700-ft lateral.

Comstock is drilling vertically at Headrick 1H and Hart 1H in Logansport and Moneyham 7H in Longwood field. Each is due a 4,000-ft leg.

EXCO said its first Haynesville horizontal well, Oden 30H6 in De Soto Parish, averaged 22.5 MMcfd on a 26/64-in. choke with 7,800 psi FCP. It has a 4,481-ft lateral at 12,304 ft TVD.

EXCO has two operated horizontal wells, one vertical well, and two outside-operated horizontal wells in the play and plans to drill 25 or more horizontal Haynesville wells in 2009.

Global LNG: Adjusting to New Realties

When Fri, Mar 20, 2015

Oil & Gas Journal’s March 20, 2015, webcast will look at how global LNG trade will be affected over the next 12-24 months by falling crude oil prices and changing patterns and pressures of demand. Will US LNG production play a role in balancing markets? Or will it add to a growing global oversupply of LNG for markets remote from easier natural gas supply? Will new buyers with marginal credit, smaller requirements, or great need for flexibility begin to look attractive to suppliers? How will high-cost, mega-projects in Australia respond to new construction cost trends?

US Midstream at a Crossroads

When Fri, Mar 6, 2015

Oil & Gas Journal’s Mar. 6, 2015, webcast will focus on US midstream companies at an inflection point in their development in response to more than 6 years shale oil and gas production growth. Major infrastructure—gas plants, gathering systems, and takeaway pipelines—have been built. Major fractionation hubs have expanded. Given the radically changed pricing environment since mid-2014, where do processors go from here? What is the fate of large projects caught in mid-development? How to producers and processors cooperate to ensure a sustainable and profitable future? This event will serve to set the discussion table for the annual GPA Convention in San Antonio, Apr. 13-16, 2015.

This event is sponsored by Leidos Engineering.

The Future of US Refining

Fri, Feb 6, 2015

Oil & Gas Journal’s Feb. 6, 2015, webcast will focus on the future of US refining as various forces this year conspire to pull the industry in different directions. Lower oil prices generally reduce feedstock costs, but they have also lowered refiners’ returns, as 2015 begins with refined products priced at lows not seen in years. If lower per-barrel crude prices dampen production of lighter crudes among shale plays, what will happen to refiners’ plans to export more barrels of lighter crudes? And as always, refiners will be affected by government regulations, particularly those that suppress demand, increase costs, or limit access to markets or supply.
