Top 20 Haynesville Wells

Below is a great list of the top 20 producing wells from the Haynesville Shale (based on initial production). It was compiled in early May 2009 by a member of www.gohaynesvilleshale.com, a Haynesville Shale-based community site. Here is the link to the article (you might have to register as a member to access the site) and a copy of the list:

  14. 22,400 MMcf/d - Petrohawk, Powers 21 #H1 Well, Serial #239358, S21-T16N-R11W
  15. 22,000 MMcf/d - Chesapeake, Blount Farms 2 #H1 Well, Serial #237716, S2-T14N-R12W
  16. 21,700 MMcf/d - Questar, Shelby Interests 31 #H1 Well, Serial #238616, S31-T15N-R9W
  17. 21,400 MMcf/d - Exco, Sammo Partnership 18 #H5 Well, Serial #239107, S18-T14N-R12W
  18. 21,179 MMcf/d - Petrohawk, Albritton Cattle 9 #H1 Well, Serial #238610, S9-T13N-R11W
  19. 21,100 MMcf/d - Petrohawk, Goodwin 9 #H5 Well, Serial #238382, S9-T16N-R11W
  20. 20,300 MMcf/d - El Paso, Blake 10 #H1 Well, Serial #238976, S10-T13N-R14W

It's an interesting list and it shows that there have been some big winners. Although high IP is not the ultimate gauge of success, it is an interesting metric, and it also creates something of a game. What's interesting to note is that Exco, which has not drilled a lot of Haynesville wells, has hit some big 'uns, while Chesapeake, which is shouting loudest about its stake, is only on the list twice. Petrohawk, which has a lot of land and is drilling many wells, has 11 of the top 20.

Again, IP is not the ultimate arbiter of success, but as Americans we always love a race!
