New Feature: Detailed Rig List

In an effort to provide more information that would interest a Haynesville Shale Fan, I've posted the weekly Baker Hughes rig listing for the Haynesville area.  It is not perfect, but it's a start.  I took out some of the parishes/counties that are less likely to contain the Haynesville Play and I've also eliminated rigs obviously not targeting the Haynesville (i.e. targeting oil).  Where there are errors, they should be errors of TMI, not omission.  There might still be rigs targeting Hosston, Cotton Valley, James Lime, etc. on the list, but the majority are Haynesville rigs. 

By this metric, this week I counted 156 rigs in the area (did I mention that this number likely is high?).  I'm not ready to hang my hat on this being an absolute figure, but it gives you an idea of what's going on where.  The link will be in the upper right hand corner of the page and will be updated weekly.

You can always compare to my list. Texas is the most challenging since some of the wells are permitted simply as "wildcat" target.

Upshur County may be outside the target area.
