Haynesville Shale Update - 7/30 - CLR, - Bakken Shale

I wanted to give a Haynesville Shale update this morning on a new company drilling the Haynesville.

Continental Resources ( CLR )

Continental CLR is now drilling at the Haynesville you can recall from my other blog posts, they are the largest operator in the Bakken Shale Oil Field in North Dakota. Continental Resources has 17,000 acres in Louisiana but aren't saying in what parishes. They will be spudding their first well in the 4th quarter.

Broadmoor Neighborhood Association

Approximately 475 to 500 local residents attended this Haynesville Shale meeting at 6:30 p.m. July 22 the Captain Shreve High School auditorium.
BNA had strongly recommended homeowners hold off on signing oil/gas leases until attending the meeting to listen and discuss various matters related to mineral leases, bonus payments, drilling and other related topics. Nonbinding letters of intent for membership in Shreve Centre Coalition LLC, legal since July 18, were distributed to attendees. BNA President Ken Krefft served as moderator at the panel discussion, which included a question-and-answer session.
