The Haynesville Shale in northwest Louisiana and east Texas is a geologically unique gas play in which many petrophysical, engineering, and mechanical properties are close to optimal. With high geopressure gradients ranging from 0.8 to >0.95 psi/ft and reservoir pressures ranging from 8000 to 17,000 psi, it is one of the most prolific shale-gas plays in North America. Through the use of horizontal wells and multiple-stage fracturing, gas production reached >7 Bcf/d in August 2011, and the play has surpassed the Barnett Shale in north Texas as one of the highest gas-producing plays in the United States.
