Depressed natural gas prices have somewhat dulled the development pace at Haynesville, but we still like this play. Now that the shale orgy has let go some of its decadence we can examine the potential without all the fanfare. Here’s why we like it:

•    As the natural gas market levels off, Haynesville will be on the top of everyone’s list
•    We’ve only tapped into one-quarter of the Haynesville Shale’s potential
•    Not only is it the US’ largest shale gas field, it could be the world’s 8th largest
•    It is this play that balances natural gas supply and demand

•    Largest inventory that can easily be delivered to market
