One reason NG prices have a lid. In this report IP's total 217mmcf/day. Even in this depressed drilling environment the Haynesville field has a slow decline because it still has big wells coming online.

Still some big wells, for sure, but this represents three weeks of new completions. A year ago, this list would have been one week's worth. Two of the three weeks provided only four total completions. If it weren't for the six (strong) Lormand wells, there would have been very few LA completions so far in August.

My point is that the quality of the completions remains strong, but the sheer number of completions has declined. I am planning to chart it in a future post.

Yeah it would be interesting to post the number of completions over a period of time and then tie that to rig count. I imagine that the rig count would decline but the number of completions may not decline at the rate of the rig count drop. You could also tie that into number of wells or number of stages completed. The point being that companies have learned to do more stages/completions with less rigs, due to efficiency gains that have been acheived over time.

So you have been on the road. I was starting to think that the lack of posts about completions meant that drilling was completely dead. Big wells might be a bit harder to come by in the area these days, but I don't think that is much of an issue yet. It's more about not making any money drilling for the stuff.

Completions reporting lately has been pretty spotty. You'll see a couple straight weeks with fewer than five and then 10-15. Many are pad-type completions where +/-5 related wells are reported at once. With the low rig count, expect very spotty results and few "big hits."
