Experts: Haynesville Shale Activity Could Decline Through 2014

by Kenneth E. DuBose on August 4, 2010

Scott based his forecast on a movement of some oil and gas companies to areas across the nation where other shale plays are drawing equal attention. And oil plays also are growing in popularity.Some of the companies, he said, are thinking of moving their rigs out of Louisiana and to places such as the Marcellus Shale in the northeast and the Eagle Ford play in south Texas. In the Marcellus, for example, the shale is not as deep as the Haynesville and drilling costs are about $6 million compared to $10 million here.
