Haynesville's Top 2022 Players That Made It Happen01/05/2023
After reaching record-high production in 2021, the Haynesville Shale seemed to have a quiet 2022, with a smattering of deal activity and attention seemingly focused more on LNG exports than production. Meanwhile, the indications are that the third-largest producing gas shale in the U.S. is growing up for a robust 2023 if commodity prices stand still.
The Haynesville Shale play, situated in northwestern Louisiana and eastern Texas, was remarked in March 2008. Petrohawk Energy Corp. and Chesapeake Energy Corp. both held lease acreages in Louisiana, making the region famous.
There was a 54% growth in Haynesville rig activity from the 46 average count in 2021 to 71 in the first half of 2022, according to J.P. Morgan’s September “JPM Natural Gas Reservoir” report.
Recent gas pipeline scrapes are running ahead of anticipations, setting record highs of almost 99.3 Bcf/d in September, with MTD gas production estimated at 98.7 Bcf/d, which compares to the August average of 97.7 Bcf/d and the September 2021 average of 92.7 Bcf/d.
Top basin performers Chesapeake Energy, Southwestern Energy, Comstock Resources, Aethon Energy, and Rockcliff Energy II produced a combined total of 1.53 MMboe/d, 83 bbl/d of oil, and 9.2 Bcf/d of gas in the first half of 2022.
One of the first companies to operate in the basin, Chesapeake was the Haynesville’s largest producer in the first half. The company produced 1.23 MMboe/d in the half, 365,766 boe/d came from its Haynesville operations, with 2.19 Bcf/d of the 6.98 Bcf/d total produced coming from the Haynesville as well.
Nevertheless, it produced 89,862 bbl/d of oil in the first half of the year, and none of Chesapeake’s oil production came from the Haynesville. The latter half of the year was aimed at concentrating on Chesapeake’s midstream capacity, committing 700 MMcf/d to a new pipeline to be constructed by momentum from the heart of the Haynesville play down to Gilles.
The company reported 334,716 boe/d in the first half of 2022 production from the Haynesville, comparable to the total 887,668 boe/d produced by the company across all its assets. In the basin, it also produced 2 Bcf/d of its total reported 5.19 Bcf/d across the combined Haynesville and Appalachian assets.
Comstock has assets spanning northern Louisiana and eastern Texas, making it the third most productive Haynesville operator with eight total rigs. The company produced a total of 314,483 boe/d, 28 bbl/d of oil, and 1.88Bcf/d of gas in the Haynesville in the first half of 2022.
As the largest private producer in the Haynesville, Aethon produced 313,492 boe/d of its total 330,601 boe/d from the basin. Moreover, 19 bbl/d of its total 402 bbl/d of oil production and 1.88Bcf/d of its total 1.98Bcf/d of natural gas production came from the Haynesville.
The second private company to emerge as a Haynesville top player, Rockcliff production totaled 205,997 boe/d in the Haynesville in the first half of the year. 36 bbl/d of its 347 bbl/d total oil production in the half came from the East Texas basin, as did 1.24 Bcf/d of its 1. 32 Bcf/d total natural gas production.

The Haynesville oil and gas basin and its importance
The Haynesville oil and gas basin is a significant shale gas-producing region located primarily in northwest Louisiana and eastern Texas in the United Statesб with some estimates suggesting it could contain up to 500 trillion cubic feet of recoverable natural gas.
Momentum Midstream Becomes a Leader in Haynesville Due to Latest Acquisitions
Houston-based company Momentum Midstream LLC on September 22 purchased Midcoast Energy LLC’s East Texas business from an affiliate of Arc Light Capital Partners LLC and Align Midstream LLC from Tailwater Capital and claimed that it establishes a leading presence in the Haynesville Shale. New Generation Gas Gathering or NG3 project will collect natural gas produced in the Haynesville Shale for re-delivery to premium Gulf Coast markets, including LNG export. Moreover, the NG3 project includes a carbon capture and sequestration component that will eliminate 100% of the CO₂ and accumulate it underground for a long time, creating a net negative carbon footprint. With the combined assets of Midcoast ETX and Align Midstream, Momentum is currently delivering volumes of more than 2 Bcf/d for a diverse customer base composed of producers, utilities, end-users, and LNG exporters. Momentum’s footprint in the Haynesville includes about 3,000 miles of gathering pipelines, 1.5 Bcf/d of treating capacity, 700 MMcf/d of processing capacity, 200,000 HP of compression, and 820 miles of pipelines transporting gas to the Gulf Coast markets in southeast Texas and the Carthage and Bethel markets in East Texas.
Permian Resources bolsters dominance in the Delaware Basin with strategic land acquisitions, expanding its portfolio by over 5,000 net leasehold acres and 3,000 royalty acres. In a stunning display of growth and strategic maneuvering, Permian Resources Corp., based in Midland, Texas, has made waves in the first quarter by securing a series of deals worth over $200 million in the highly sought-after Delaware Basin. This move solidifies their position as a player in the region.
The Williston Basin, which spans parts of North Dakota, Montana, Saskatchewan, and Manitoba, is a major oil-producing region in North America. In order to transport crude oil and natural gas from the wells to refineries and other destinations, a vast pipeline infrastructure has been built in the area. The pipeline infrastructure in the Williston Basin consists of a network of pipelines that connect production sites to processing facilities, storage tanks, and major pipeline hubs
Matador Resources Co. is making a big move in the oil and gas industry by acquiring Advance Energy Partners Holdings LLC, a major player in the northern Delaware Basin. The acquisition, which comes with a hefty price tag of at least $1.6 billion in cash, includes valuable assets in Lea County, N.M., and Ward County, Texas, as well as key midstream infrastructure.
