I’ve had the pleasure of speaking to Lynn and John Irving on several occasions. They are the gate guards on a well that I’ve visited. They are a fascinating couple that are from New Zealand and now working part of the year in the states for Gate Guard Services to provide support for gas well locations.

Pre Conference Notice (What the heck does it say and what the heck does it mean).
I’m going to try to lay out what the things on a pre conference notice mean in simple terms to a layman (from a layman). If I get it wrong, please correct me. If it is a nuance difference that is only useful to those of us that love to pick apart every lease clause and obsess over everything oil and gas, please be kind and post it somewhere else. Let's keep it simple. I hope that this blog and comments… Continue

I'm a 24 year old one semester away from a Biology degree, not your typical oil and gas researcher. However, I grew up with a grandfather working extensively in the oil field services area, and my uncles were destined to follow. I attended UL in Lafayette, and was introduced to the off shore drilling aspect, and was also made familiar with the business and investment portion of the industry. I was born and raised in the Haughton area, with my family dispursed over Bossier, DeSoto, and Union… Continue

I've had the pleasure of getting to know Mr. Kallenberg over the last year and it's no mistake that "Haynesville" is the first rate film that it is. 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
