Barnett Shale still produces more than Haynesville, firm says
A Texas-based natural gas consulting firm is challenging the Energy Information Administration's estimate that the Haynesville Shale in Louisiana and Texas is producing more than the Barnett Shale in Texas.
"Our data clearly shows that the Barnett production is still greater than the Haynesville production," said George Lippman, president of Lippman Consulting.
The Barnett Shale averaged 5.52 billion cubic feet per day in February, Lippman Consulting's estimates say, compared with Haynesville daily output of 5.03 billion cubic feet, Lippman said. (Source: Fort Worth Star-Telegram, March 24, 2011)
