Barnett Shale’s Top Operators Revealed

June 24, 2009

AUSTIN, Texas, June 24 /PRNewswire/ — What do some of the Barnett Shale’s key players know about a portion of the play long considered outlier and non-economic that others don’t? These areas have seen a significant increase in activity on the heels of recent production successes of EOG and DTE in Palo Pinto, Montague, Jack, and adjacent counties.

“What many people miss in these types of plays is that operations matter, and they matter in a big way; a good operator can produce up to 5 times as much hydrocarbon from a given acreage as a bad operator,” according to Ramona Hovey, Drillinginfo Energy Strategy Partners’ Managing Director.

These findings within the Barnett Shale are part of an update to Drillinginfo’s Fort Worth Basin Research Platform. The Fort Worth Basin Platform is comprised of deep data and analysis of the play as it emerges, including a full ranking of acreage probable productivity, acreage potential graded by operator, and relative operator efficiencies within their graded acreage.

Drillinginfo will be holding two full day seminars to provide an in-depth look at the Research Platform and to reveal how the play’s top producers get the most out of their holdings. The seminars will be held in Dallas on August 21st and in Houston on August 26th. The seminars will discuss the methodology behind this ground breaking study, including Drillinginfo’s proprietary Graded Potential Acreage, or GPA(TM).

In addition to the science behind the Platform, the seminars will provide an overview of the Barnett Shale play and the current competitive landscape. It will provide details about how to leverage the Fort Worth Basin Research Platform to make crucial land and business critical decisions.
