The Haynesville Shale Region does have a lot of rigs but almost a third in LA are drilling something other than the Haynesville/Bossier shales. 10 out of the 36 rigs deployed in north Louisiana are drilling Cotton Valley sands. And in recent weeks there have been rigs drilling Hosston sands.
I'm with you michael however comparisons to pre-unconventional development are fraught with problems. It seems a difficult task to get GHS members who follow horizontal development to add 2x to rig counts. Example, the Haynesville Shale will never see 60 rigs running again....that's because 4.0 well designs mean that one rig drills the linear feet of lateral that took 2 rigs to drill just 2 to 3 years ago. So 26 current Haynesville rigs is roughly equal to 52 rigs in 2013/2014/2015.
I am invested in a gas well in Palo Pinto County, TX. The well is on the Hart ranch and is relatively close to Possum Kingdom Lake, Possum Kingdom Lake is on the Brazos River that generally separates Parker County and Palo Pinto County. I reside in Parker County. While this is big time Barnett Shale area in Parker County, it is shallow gas in the Palo Pinto region. It will be an interesting investment to me.
