Haynesville – update through May 2020

This interactive presentation contains the latest gas (and a little oil) production data, from all 5,628 horizontal wells in the Haynesville that started producing from 2007, through May 2020. The last time we had a separate post on this basin was over a year ago. But we noticed that drilling activity is relatively high in this basin (even higher than in the Marcellus!), and it is the only major US shale basin for which we predict output growth, based on current activity levels.
