Seismic Helps Discover Largest Natural Gas Resource Ever Examined
Estimates of the Haynesville and Bossier formations are estimated to contain more than four times the amount of natural gas originally thought to be in that area in 2010.
“It’s amazing what a little more knowledge can yield,” said USGS scientist Stan Paxton, lead author of the assessment. “Since the 2010 assessment, we’ve gotten updated geologic maps, expanded production history and have a greater understanding of how these reservoirs evolved. All of that leads to a better geological model and therefore a more robust assessment.”
