Haynesville Shale in the US, 2019 – Gas Shale Market Analysis and Outlook to 2023

The Haynesville shale is spread across Northwest Louisiana and East Texas, in the US, covering an area of around 9,000 sq. miles. The strategic location of this shale play near to some of the world’s largest petrochemical complexes, LNG export facilities, and more importantly the Gulf of Mexico makes it one of the most revenue-generating shale plays in the US. The facilities around the shale formation help in rapid ‘spud-to-sale’ cycle time, thus, making it more attractive to the investors.

Due to the deposition of hydrocarbons in deeper layers than most of the other shale gas formations, ranging from 10,500 ft. to 14,000 ft., the companies initially found this play less feasible to extract shale gas with existing technology. However, over the years, innovation in drilling technology and updated completion techniques changed the competitive landscape attracting more players to increase their drilling activities.
