The Haynesville Shale, an Upper Jurassic (Kimmeridgian) age calcareous and locally organic-rich mudrock, is one of many prominent shale gas plays in North America. As shale plays increase in importance, the ability to define basin-wide, robust, and stable stratigraphic frameworks using data derived from well-bores becomes increasingly critical. Here, the technique of chemostratigraphy is used to define a stratigraphic framework that extends through ten wells ranging from eastern Texas to northwestern Louisiana. Stratigraphic variations in inorganic geochemistry allow clear differentiation of Haynesville Shale from the underlying Smackover Formation, the Gilmer Lime, and the overlying Bossier Formation. More importantly, however,...
