We're #1 !!!

The EIA announced today that the Haynesville Shale has surpassed the Barnett Shale as the most productive natural gas formation in the U.S., producing 5.5 Bcf/day, versus 5.25 Bcf/day for the Barnett.  Pretty astounding for a formation that was virtually unheard of three years ago.

Sorry but the story published is not really correct. You will notice the source of the information is Bentek that does not have the ability to calculate the actual Haynesville/Bossier Shale production rate. Instead they utilize pipeline flow information that includes non-Haynesville Shale production. In fact Bentek claims the 5.5 Bcfd is from just the Louisiana section of the Haynesville Shale which is a significant overstatement.
