Haynesville well results encourage operators

By OGJ editors
HOUSTON, July 15
-- Forest Oil Corp., Denver, and Goodrich Petroleum Corp., Houston, reported results from recent Jurassic Haynesville horizontal well completions in Louisiana and East Texas.

Forest, meanwhile, said it operated only four rigs in this year’s second quarter and continues to defer significant investments until drilling and completion costs are reduced to acceptable levels to support a larger drilling program at current natural gas prices.

In Red River Parish, La., the Driver 13-1H well produced into a sales line at 20.3 MMcfd of gas equivalent with 6,500 psi flowing casing pressure in early July. It had 10 frac stages in a 3,500-ft horizontal leg and cost $9 million.

Forest has identified 110 potential horizontal locations on the 11,050 Haynesville prospective net acres it holds in Louisiana. It will maintain a one-rig program in the parish for the rest of 2009 and one rig in other prospective areas of the play in Texas and Louisiana.

Goodrich Petroleum said the Taylor Sealey-3H in Panola County, Tex., produced at 9.3 MMcfd with 5,200 psi on a 24/64-in. choke. It is in Minden field 6 miles south of the Lutheran Church-5H well that had an initial rate of 9 MMcfd. The company has 100% working interest.

The company reached total depth at two other Haynesville shale horizontal wells, T. Swiley-4H in Minden field and Beard Taylor-1H in Beckville field.

Goodrich Petroleum also held interests in three wells completed by Chesapeake Energy Corp. in Bethany-Longstreet field, Caddo and DeSoto Parishes, La.

Initial rates were 12.5 MMcfd with 7,800 psi on an 18/64-in. choke at Johnson 32H-1, Goodrich 31%; 15.4 MMcfd with 6,100 psi on a 22/64-in. choke at Wallace 36H-1, Goodrich 22%; and 14 MMcfd with 4,000 psi on a 22/64-in. choke at the Bryan 25H-1, Goodrich 13%.
