The Haynesville Shale may yet swing a comeback—perhaps to rival the likes of Elvis, Brando or at the very least, Burt Reynolds in “Gator.”
Haynesville talk routinely spills over into A&D conversations otherwise dominated by the Permian Basin and Oklahoma Stack. And increasingly, industry experts are giving a nod to the legacy natural gas play virtually left for dead as the Marcellus Shale warped production toward the northeast.
While there’s no swooning over deals yet, the play is intriguing to some. The Haynesville has managed to push back against Henry Hub differentials. Laterals are longer and completions more comprehensive, and the play is near LNG hubs.
