Good Haynesville Article

With natural gas prices staying low, the Haynesville Shale is becoming the forgotten play nationally.  The most interesting news of the past several months has been Encana's announcement that it will be bringing as many as five rigs back to the play to drill wells with long laterals that could generate up to 18 Bcf EURs.  That announcement is the point of departure of a recent article on on the Seeking Alpha web site that takes a crack at quantifying the "sweet spot" of the Haynesville Play.  It offers a pretty good summary of what's going on.

On the Encana Haynesville Asset Overview slide, what are the brown areas? Faults of some kind? I am guessing no drilling where those are located? Thanks.

On other maps I've seen faults running in this area. Check out this GMX map from 2009:
