Barnett Shale Study Fort Worth Basin, Texas

Our Ft Worth Basin Barnett Shale study to reflects drilling and exploration activity up to 2001. This digital product includes maps, cross-sections, and database in Adobe Acrobat (PDF) format on a single CD-ROM. Paper copies of each map at 1"=16,000 feet and one copy of each cross-section are also included. The project area now includes 700 study wells drilled through early 2001.

All maps and cross-sections have been updated to reflect the new well data. Correlations have been improved and refined in many areas from the new data. Logs have been digitized from approximately 500 feet above the top Barnett to 300 feet below the base of the Barnett. Production decline curves have been compiled for every Barnett producer and estimated ultimate recoveries estimated using consistent decline analysis methods.

This study will be an indispensable aid for your regional evaluation of the Barnett Shale play. Know where this play is likely to grow and focus your exploration and leasing efforts now!
