Haynesville buried-array seismic work set

HOUSTON, Nov. 18
-- El Paso Corp. let contract to MicroSeismic Inc. for a buried-array seismic monitoring program in its Haynesville shale development program south of Shreveport, La.

The buried array, to be installed before yearend, will provide microseismic monitoring, mapping, and analysis for hydraulic fracturing of El Paso wells. It will be the sixth such system the contractor has installed in the Haynesville shale play.

El Paso has five rigs drilling in the Haynesville play and expects to be producing more than 125 MMcfd of gas equivalent from the shale by December.

In October it said it had 250-300 Haynesville locations on 40,000 net acres, 30,000 in Louisiana. At the time it had 13 Haynesville wells on production with two being completed.
