Questar's First Haynesville Wells

I also neglected to mention Questar's November release describing two Haynesville wells. Questar is not the company people first think of in terms of LA/TX exploration, but they have had some under the radar success.

From Questar's press release: "The Waerstad #3, located in Red River Parish, LA (Sec 1, T14N, R12W) was placed on production on November 13, 2008 at an initial rate of 16 million cubic feet of natural gas per day (MMcfd) on a 23/64 inch choke with 6,400 pounds per square inch flowing casing pressure. Eight fracture stimulation stages were pumped in the 3,234 foot horizontal lateral. Questar E&P has a 100% working interest in the Waerstad #3 well.

The Wiggins 36 H - #1, located in Bienville Parish, LA (Sec 36, T15N, R10W) was placed on production on November 16, 2008, at an initial rate of 7.4 MMcfd on a 22/64 inch choke with 5,450 pounds per square inch flowing casing pressure. Nine fracture stimulation stages were pumped in the 3,455 foot horizontal lateral. Questar E&P has a 62% working interest in the Wiggins 36H- #1 well.

Questar E&P is currently drilling two additional company-operated Haynesville horizontal wells and is participating in four outside-operated Haynesville horizontal wells that are in various stages of progress.
