Haynesville Shale Rig Count: -3 to 131

To nobody's surprise, the Haynesville Shale rig count continues to slide, declining by three this week to 131 working rigs.  The Texas count held at 33, while the Louisiana count dropped by three to 98, the first time since I started counting a year and a half ago that it has broken 100.  Pretty soon we might be looking at rig counts resembling competitive golf scores for 18 holes for the LA count.



U.S. Rig Count: +17 to 1,847

The weekly Baker Hughes count of working rigs in the U .S. showed a 17 rig increase to 1,847.  Gas rigs were up 15 to 881, oil rigs were up four to 958 and miscellaneous rigs were down two to eight.  By type, horizontal rigs were up 16 to 1,054, directional rigs were up seven to 232 and vertical rigs were down six to 561.

In the Haynesville region, inclusive of other formations, the rig count dropped by five to 153.  North Louisiana was down four to 102 while east Texas was down one to 51.

The detailed Haynesville Shale count should be available mid-late afternoon.

Fracking Can't Win a PR Battle (But Can it Win the War?)

In recent weeks, I've read a handful of articles about the annual meetings of big oil and gas companies where each company is facing a shareholder proposal calling for greater transparency in the process of hydraulic fracturing.  Not only are the proposals calling for specific disclosure, they are are also asking companies to reveal potential risks to the company's future production.  It is a new strategy by anti-fracking folks to spook investors as a way of influencing public opinion.

The referendums have largely failed, but their presence on the ballot has attracted lots of attention and has even led to a few investor proxy advisory companies to come out in favor of the resolutions.  It's a very shrewd way of infiltrating the media subconscious, something that the energy industry has thus far failed to do with any success.

EIA: Storage +105 Bcf to 2.024 Tcf

The weekly EIA working gas in storage report showed a 105 Bcf net injection, bringing gas in storage to 2.024 Tcf.  The weekly injection was 5% higher than last year (100 Bcf) and 10% higher than the five year average (95 Bcf). The current storage level is still 230 Bcf lower than last year (2.254 Tcf) and 26 Bcf lower than the five year average (2.05 Tcf).


Temperatures last week averaged 58.7 degrees, 3.6 degrees colder than the five year average and 3.7 degrees colder than last year.

Cheniere Gets Another "Go"

Yesterday, Cheniere Energy Partners, LP announced  that its Sabine Pass LNG facility had been authorized by the U.S. Department of Energy to export liquefied natural gas to any country with which a U.S. company is permitted to trade and has the capacity - now or in the future - to receive LNG.  This is an upgrade from the company's previous approval to only do business with customers in countries with free trade agreements with the U.S.

This is good news for the gas industry and for the country.  It is another sign that the government recognizes the value of our natural gas reserves and the potential economic benefit of gas to the economy.  Sometimes, because of the conflicting agendas of federal agencies, we can't get out of our own way, but this is a case where the greater good is being served. If the U.S. can add natural gas to its paltry list of exports (not including intellectual property and education), all the better.

Haynesville Shale Rig Count: -3 to 134

The weekly Haynesville Shale rig count dropped three rigs to 134.  In the past two weeks, the count has dropped by five rigs.  There was very little reported activity in the area, especially Louisiana, so expect more activity next week. Spreadsheet lists and maps have been updated.



U.S. Rig Count: unchanged at 1,830

The weekly U.S. rig count was unchanged last week, holding at 1,830.  Oil rigs were up seven to 954, gas rigs were down eight to 866 and miscellaneous rigs were up one to ten.  By type, vertical rigs were  up four to 567, horizontal rigs were down three to 1,038 and directional rigs were down one to 225.

In the Haynesville Shale region, inclusive of other formations, the rig count was down three to 158, down two in east Texas to 52 and down one in north Louisiana to 106.

EIA: Storage +92 Bcf to 1.919 Tcf

The weekly EIA working gas in storage report showed a 92 Bcf net injection, bringing the total gas in storage to 1.919 Tcf.  The weekly injection was comparable to the five year average (+91 Bcf) but 14 Bcf higher than last year (+78 Bcf).  The current storage level is 1.8% lower than the five year average and 10.9% lower than last year.


Temperatures last week averaged 63 degrees, 2.9 degrees warmer than normal and 5.9 degrees warmer than last year.

Denali Dead. Is AGIA Next?

Another victim of the shale boom:  yesterday, ConocoPhillips and BP officially threw in the towel and declared that their "Denali" joint venture natural gas pipeline from the North Slope of Alaska to Alberta, Canada is officially dead. Officials for the proposed $35 billion project withdrew the venture's pre-application with Federal Energy Regulatory Commission.  The pipeline owners couldn't find a viable market for the gas now that cheap gas is readily available in the Lower 48 thanks to the advent of shale gas.

With the demise of Denali, the question is, what happens to the joint venture of Exxon and TransCanada for the pipeline partially subsidized ($500 million) by the state of Alaska through its now infamous Alaska Gasline Inducement Act (AGIA)?  It's been dead man walking for the past couple of years now.  If not for the political implications of its failure, it probably would have folded tent last year.

GMX Oil Reentry Candidates

GMX stated in its earnings release earlier this month that it has identified "some" earlier completions as reentry candidates to look for oil in the Smackover and/or Norphlet formations below the Haynesville.  We previously guessed at one, the Bosh #2A, which was permitted officially on Thursday.  On Friday, GMX applied for the Sanders Moore #5, a vertical recompletion to 14,500' in Harrison Co., which was originally completed in November 2006 as a Cotton Valley well.  Approval is pending.

I've updated the Texas oil list with this information and the update on Bosh #2A (the application was changed from 12,500' to 14,400' - hmm...).

Haynesville Shale Rig Count: -2 to 137

The weekly Haynesville Shale rig count dropped by two rigs this week to 137.  The two rig decrease occurred  in Louisiana, which now has 102 rigs.  Texas held at 35.



U.S. Rig Count: -6 to 1,830

The weekly Baker Hughes rig count showed a six rig decrease, bringing the total number of working rigs in the U.S. to 1,830.  The number of oil rigs increased by 13 to 947, while the gas rigs decreased by 16 to 874 and miscellaneous rigs declined by three to nine.  By type, horizontal rigs were up three (1,041), directional rigs were up one (226) and vertical rigs were down ten (563).

In the Haynesville region, inclusive of other formations, the rig count was down three to 161, as north Louisiana dropped by three to 107.  East Texas held at 54.

Crimson Reports New Completions; Going Quiet for the Rest of 2011

Crimson Exploration reported its quarterly earnings yesterday and noted two new completions, including one in the Mid-Bossier Shale:
  • Kodiak #1H, Crimson Exploration:  8.9 MMcf/day IP, 15/64" choke, 8,833 psi; Carthage Field (Mid-Bossier), San Augustine Co., Survey: CONICHE, S, A-9
  • Blue #1 H, Crimson Exploration:  8.3 MMcf/day IP, 14/64" choke, 9,100 psi; Carthage Field (Haynesville Shale), San Augustine Co., Survey: CONICHE, S, A-9

With the completion of these two wells, Crimson has finished drilling in the Haynesville Shale for 2011.  Until natural gas prices recover, Crimson will only drill in East Texas to with the goal of preserving any future leases.

The Mid-Bossier spreadsheet and maps have been updated to reflect the new data.

EIA: Storage +70 Bcf to 1.827 Tcf

The weekly working gas in storage report showed a 70 Bcf net injection, bringing the storage level to 1.827 Tcf.  The current week's injection level was 25% lower than last week (93 Bcf) and 22% lower than the five year average (90 Bcf).  The current storage level is 249 Bcf lower than last year and 37 Bcf below the five year average.


Last week's temperatures averaged 56.6 degrees, which was 1.7 degrees cooler than normal and 5.7 degrees colder than last year.

UT to Study Impact of Fracking

The Energy Institute at the University of Texas announced yesterday that it will be conducting a comprehensive scientific study of the impacts of hydraulic fracturing, specifically looking at alleged impacts to groundwater and connections to seismic events, among other things.

While I welcome the additional research on the subject, I feel like I already know the outcome.  Not the outcome of the study, but the skepticism with which the results will be greeted. Because the issue of fracking has become so politicized and emotional, it seems beyond reasonable discussion now.  Whatever the results, those on the other side will immediately claim bias and try to discredit the study.

I hate to be so cynical, but it seems that the battle over fracking will be years of bloody trench warfare.

GMX on Deep Oil

From GMX Resources' first quarter 2011 operational update (my emphasis):
"The Company announced on our year-end 2010 update call planned tests to evaluate the zones below the Haynesville in response to reports indicating that an offset operator had produced oil from area reported to be below the Haynesville. In 2006, the Company drilled or caused to be drilled 19 vertical test wells through the Smackover (below the Haynesville). The only oil-bearing formation known to produce below the Smackover in east Texas is the Norphlet, which historically resides at the top of the Lou Ann Salt. Only three of the deep tests were drilled to the salt; however, open-hole logs could not survey the full interval. These wells were subsequently completed as Cotton Valley Sands vertical wells. The Company has identified some of these wells that would suitable for re-entry. We have begun that process and anticipate having an update on the results during second or third quarter of 2011."
In its conference call materials, the company said it identified six CV wells for re-entry.

Asians Still Betting on Shale Gas

In another example of Asian investors putting their money behind North American shale gas, Singapore sovereign wealth fund Temasek Holdings Limited and Asian investment firm RRJ Capital joined Chesapeake Energy in a leveraged buyout of Frac Tech Holdings.  A few months ago, Chesapeake, a minority owner of hydraulic fracturing service provider Frac Tech, announced that it would "monetize" its investment through a sale or IPO of the company.  The planned IPO was shelved Friday and the LBO was announced today.

As a result of the transaction, Chesapeake received a $200 million payment and will now own 30% (up from 26%) of the company.  Huh?  Chesapeake's book value investment is $150 million, but the company believes it will have a market value of $1.5 billion by year end.  Enron accounting?  Unlikely.  Sweet deal for Chesapeake?  Absolutely.

The message here is that Asian investors understand the importance of shale gas and are willing to pay up for it.  And Chesapeake is happy to go along for the ride.

Petrohawk's Haynesville Rig Count Headed Down

Petrohawk Energy released its first quarter earnings report last week.  As the company has been saying for the past year, it expects to have the "vast majority" of its leasehold held by production in the second quarter of this year.  As a result, it will start reducing rig count in the next few months.  Now that the drilling for lease retention phase is over, Petrohawk will "bring the rig count in line with market conditions."  The company has been averaging 16 Haynesville rigs, but that number will drop to six by the beginning of the third quarter and hold until the end of the year, assuming market conditions remain the same.

The company also announced that with the upcoming reduction in drilling, its Haynesville operations will finally be cash flow positive.  When you step back to think about it, the company has produced 410 billion cubic feet of natural gas in three years and has yet to break even.  Economists would describe that as irrational.  Running that many rigs drilling +/- $10 million wells in a crappy commodity price environment?  At the same time, the company took on debt, somewhat diluted its shareholders and sold valuable assets.  But Petrohawk made a business decision that will benefit the company in the long run if natural gas prices go up.  That looks like a big "if" sometimes, but that's what risk/reward is all about.

Petrohawk's Pipeline Sale to Bring in $855 Million

A couple of weeks ago, Petrohawk announced that it would be selling its share of the 50/50 joint venture Haynesville Shale pipeline it owns with Kinder Morgan (it sold the first half to Kinder Morgan last year), hoping to raise $1 billion for capital expenditures.  It turns out that Kinder Morgan bought the rest of the Haynesville pipeline and 25% of Petrohawk's Eagle Ford Shale pipeline infrastructure for $920 million ($855 million net to Petrohawk plus $65 million of assumed debt).

One investment analyst thinks that's a cheap price given the strong cash flow of the operation.  It's probably kind of telling that the press release only appeared on Kinder Morgan's web site and not on Petrohawk's.  Unfortunately, when you have only one likely buyer for an asset you are not likely to get top dollar.

Haynesville Shale Rig Count: Unchanged at 139

The weekly Haynesville Shale rig count was unchanged at 139, with Louisiana holding at 104 and Texas holding at 35.



U.S. Rig Count: +18 to 1,836

For the second straight week, the Baker Hughes rig count showed an 18 rig increase, bringing the number of working rigs in the U.S. to 1,836. Of that total, 934 are oil rigs (+8), 890 are gas rigs (+8) and ten are classified as miscellaneous (+2).  This week, there were 15 more horizontal rigs working (1,038), six more directional rigs (225) and three fewer vertical rigs (573).

In the Haynesville Shale region, inclusive of other formations, the rig count increased by four to 164, increasing by three in east Texas (54) and one in north Louisiana (110).

The detailed Haynesville Shale rig count should be available late this afternoon.

New Goodrich Completion

Goodrich Petroleum announced its first quarter results yesterday.  Evidence of the company's attention shift towards the Eagle Ford Shale was present, as during the quarter Goodrich completed 12 Haynesville wells in the quarter and three Eagle Ford wells (gross).  But in terms of drilling activity, the company drilled nine Haynesville wells and eight Eagle Ford wells (gross).  The momentum clearly is shifting from the Haynesville towards the Eagle Ford.

Goodrich did report one promising completion:

  • H. Nelson #1 H, Goodrich: 12.4 MMcf/day IP (24 hour test), 14/64" choke, 11,500 psi; 4,860 ft lateral with 15 frac stages.; Carthage Field (Haynesville Shale), Nacogdoches Co., Survey: MEDFORD, J R , A-406

Goodrich reports that after two months the well is flowing at 10.4 MMcf/day.  Not too shabby.

No New Louisiana Completions This Week

For some reason, there were no new Louisiana completions reported by the LA DNR this week.  Not for a lack of activity, I'm sure.  Certainly there will be lots of completions to report next week...

EIA: Storage +72 Bcf to 1.757 Tcf

The weekly EIA working gas in storage report showed a 72 Bcf net injection last week, brining the total gas in storage to 1.757 Tcf.  The weekly injection was slightly below last year's injection (83 Bcf) and the five year average (78 Bcf). The current storage level is 11.4%, or 226 Bcf, below last year's level and 1.0%, or 17 Bcf, below the five year average.


Temperatures last week averaged 59.1 degrees, which was 2.9 degrees warmer than normal and 3.6 degrees warmer than last year.

Oil Rumor List Updated

I posted a minor update to the Texas oil rumor spreadsheet. Nothing substantial, I added one suspicious well (Bath Gas Unit B #10), updated drilling status and shuffled a couple of wells lower on the list.  While there has been ongoing conversation about oil under the Haynesville in the past few weeks, I have not heard anything new of substance and have therefore been silent myself.

As with all posts about the possibility of oil underlying the Haynesville formation in either Texas or Louisiana, please keep in mind that this information is mostly based on rumor, suspicion and analysis, not releases by producers.  Treat with appropriate skepticism.

Comstock Revises Haynesville Capex

In its first quarter earnings release yesterday, Comstock gave an update on its 2010 completions backlog and modifications to its spending plans.

The company will spend $570 million total for drilling and completion in 2011, up from an initial estimate of $522 million back in December.  It's Haynesville capex estimate has creeped up from a previous estimate of $348 million to $401 million.  Of that amount, $115 million will be used to complete the 2010 inventory.
