Devon to accelerate Haynesville shale drilling

By OGJ editors
HOUSTON, Nov. 18
-- Devon Energy Corp. plans to accelerate drilling in its southern Haynesville shale play based upon results from a well in San Augustine County, Tex.

Kardell 1H achieved an average continuous 24-hr flow rate of 30.7 MMcfd of gas equivalent through a 37/64-in. choke. Flowing pressure was 6,824 psi.

The well was drilled to 18,350 ft TMD, including a horizontal lateral section of 4,500 ft. Devon operates the well with 48% working interest. Crimson Exploration Inc. owns the rest.

David A. Hager, Devon executive vice-president, exploration and production, said the company plans a five-rig program in 2010 in this southern play area.

Devon holds 570,000 net acres in the greater Haynesville trend of east Texas and north Louisiana. Previously, Devon drilled eight horizontal Haynesville wells around Carthage, Tex.
