I'm a 24 year old one semester away from a Biology degree, not your typical oil and gas researcher.

I was born and raised in the Haughton area, with my family dispursed over Bossier, DeSoto, and Union… Continue

Kallenberg and his team have put tremendous thought into it's production and it shows. If you haven't seen this film, you are missing out. I had a chance to speak with Gregory earlier this morning as he awaits the premiere of "Haynesville" at the SXSW… Continue

Are any of the oil companies running any type of BHP/BHT monitring devices downhole while they are fracing? From my understanding that some of the horizontal well are getting multistage fracs, and want to question that if the oil companies would monitor their fracs, would they gain any vital information.

During the past week, I have heard the same thing from three sources, that Petrohawk has laid off hundreds of landmen. The figure I hear is between 250 - 400 landmen laid off. This is massive. Is this a Petrohawk problem or is this another downturn in natural gas and its price? Is it a maturing of the work in the Haynesville Shale in particular...

Recent developments in New Mexico have Bob Gallagher, head of the NMOGA, leaving his post amid what appear to be contentions over his opinions regarding state regulations, the "direction" in which the NMOGA wishes to take it's organization, and a state administration that is attempting to revamp it's oversight of the industry.…

Does anyone else out there receiving or expecting to receive payments for NG taken from your wells think the gas companies are screwing up your division orders and second-year property usage payments on purpose to bank on the interest and keep money out of our pockets.
There seems like a lot of dim-wits are working in the offices of some of the Encore and Petrohawk locations. We have rights on one producing well now, one which has been fracked and another about to be fracked and we… Continue

From his press release
"Unfortunately, proposals to regulate greenhouse gasses by the Environmental Protection Agency could threaten our continued economic progress. Last week I wrote to the Administrator of the EPA in Washington to object to their new proposals, which would have a chilling effect on refining and production capability in Louisiana and force employers to reduce their workforces or even possibly move their businesses to other countries. We need sensible… Continue
