Four Chesapeake shales set output marks

By OGJ editors
HOUSTON, Oct. 22
-- Chesapeake Energy Corp., Oklahoma City, achieved record gross operated production from its four main US shale gas plays.

The company reported exceeding 1 bcfd in from the Barnett shale, reaching 500 MMcfd from the Haynesville shale, topping 400 MMcfd from the Fayetteville shale, and attaining 100 MMcfd from the Marcellus shale.

The production levels came from 1,500 Chesapeake-operated Barnett wells, 125 Haynesville wells, 450 Fayetteville wells, and 60 Marcellus wells.

Since entering the Barnett shale in late 2004, the company has become its second largest gas producer.

Chesapeake said the 125 operated Haynesville wells are 20% the number needed to reach the same production level in the Barnett. Plains Exploration & Production Co. is Chesapeake’s 20% joint venture partner in the Haynesville.

Chesapeake is also the second largest gas producer in the Fayetteville, where BP America Inc. is its 25% joint venture partner.

Chesapeake said it’s the largest leaseholder in the Marcellus, where StatoilHydro is its 32.5% joint venture partner, and expects to become the play’s largest producer by the end of 2009.

Among recent completions:

Barnett—The Day Kimball Hill A1 in Tarrant County, Tex., peaked at 16.4 MMcfd and is expected to average more than 13 MMcfd in its first month and exceed the previous monthly industry Barnett output record established by two Chesapeake-operated wells in mid-2009 that averaged more than 9 MMcfd.

Haynesville—Caspiana 13-15-12 H-1 peaked at 20.2 MMcfd, and Bradway 24-15-12 H-1 peaked at 18.6 MMcfd. Both are in Caddo Parish, La.

Fayetteville—Reva Deen 7-8-1-15H9 in White County, Ark, peaked at 8 MMcfd, and Collinsworth 7-16 2-10H in Conway County peaked at 6.2 MMcfd.

Marcellus—Clapper 2H in Susquehanna County, Pa., peaked at 10.1 MMcfd, and Otten 2H in Bradford County peaked at 8.9 MMcfd.
