haynesville shale overview
Haynesville Shale - Overview
  • CHK discovered in 2007, the Haynesville Shale is likely to become one of the two largest natural gas fields in the U.S.
    • Play encompasses approximately a 3.5 mm acre area in northwest LA and east TX
  • CHK is the largest leaseholder in the play with ~620,000 acres under control, primarily focused in the core
    • Currently operating 35 rigs in the play; plan to top out at ~40 in ‘10
  • Currently producing ~330 net mmcfe/day (450 mmcfe gross operated) and anticipates exceeding ~370 net mmcfe/day (500 mmcfe gross operated) by year-end 2009. By the end of 2010, ~500 net/ 670 gross. By the end of 2011, ~690 net/930 gross

  • Created 1.1 bcfe/day of gathering capacity
  • Over the past two years, CHK has rapidly shifted from exploration to full-scale development and increased its rig count from 1 rig to 35 rigs and is on its way to 40 rigs
chk is king of the haynesville core
CHK is King of the Haynesville Core
  • CHK discovered the Haynesville and from the beginning targeted the Core
  • In the past three years, CHK has built the dominant leasehold position in the Core
  • CHK has already HBP’d 88,000 net acres (17%) of total 510,000 net acres
    • Estimated HBP by YE’09 ~109,000 net acres (from CHK operated wells only)
    • Estimated HBP by YE’10 ~218,000 net acres (from CHK operated wells only)
    • Estimated HBP by YE’11 ~330,000 net acres (from CHK operated wells only)
  • 150 million years old
  • 200-300 feet thick
  • 2.0-2.5 miles below surface
  • Targeted EUR of 4.5-8.5 bcfe per well (6.5 bcfe mid-point EUR)
bossier shale overview
Bossier Shale Overview
  • CHK is the largest leasehold owner in the play
  • CHK currently owns ~175,000 net acres of leasehold prospective for Bossier Shale
  • CHK’s initial Bossier Shale test, the Blackstone 26 H-1 had an initial production rate of 9.4 mmcfe/day on August 2, 2009; averaged 8.1 mmcfe/day in the first 30 days
  • CHK’s leasehold position in the Bossier Shale has risked unproved reserves of ~2.3 tcfe and unrisked proved reserves of ~9 tcfe
  • Currently drilling second Bossier Shell well, Muench 10H-1, in southern DeSoto Parish
  • Two additional industry Bossier Shale horizontal wells are currently producing
  • CHK has the industry’s largest combined resource potential in the Haynesville and Bossier Shales
chk is also king of the haynesville bossier shale overlap core
CHK is also King of the Haynesville/Bossier Shale Overlap Core
  • CHK anticipates having an interest in roughly 80% of the wells drilled in the Haynesville and Bossier Core area
  • CHK is concentrated in geologically stable areas where faulting and depth issues are minimized
  • Haynesville Core area has the best reservoir characteristics within the entire Haynesville play
  • All of the wells that have IP’d at >20 mmcfe/day are in the Haynesville Core
  • In addition, at 175,000 net acres, CHK has the dominate leasehold position in the emerging Bossier Shale Core and especially where the two Core areas overlap in LA
  • From Barnett to Haynesville to Marcellus, CHK has always focused on leasing the highest quality rock – dividends from this policy will pay off for decades to come
haynesville shale emphasis on superpads
Haynesville Shale – Emphasis on Superpads
  • Superpads
    • Reduced surface impact
    • Fewer rig moves
    • 8 wells per superpad
    • 16 wells per superpad in Haynesville/Bossier stacked fairway
    • 1 superpad per section
  • Wells
    • 80-acre spacing (8 per section)
      • 660’ nominal wellbore spacing
    • Single 4,500’ lateral
    • Oriented north-south
  • No current plans to drill multi-lateral stacked horizontals due to too much operational risk
  • Gathering systems east-west along section lines between superpads
  • Design of drilling program minimizes surface impact and maximizes getting leases held-by-production
haynesville bossier shale summary
Haynesville/Bossier Shale - Summary
  • Haynesville/Bossier Shale will likely become one of the two largest natural gas fields in the U.S.
  • CHK is the largest leaseholder in the Haynesville and Bossier Shale plays
    • CHK will likely end up participating in roughly 50% of all wells in the play
  • Overall project has the potential to add ~39 tcfe of unrisked unproved reserves to CHK
    • Haynesville Shale upside is ~30 tcfe of unrisked unproved reserves to CHK
    • Bossier Shale upside is ~9 tcfe of unrisked unproved reserves to CHK

  • CHK has the #1 position in the #1 play in the U.S.
impact of the haynesville shale
Impact of the Haynesville Shale
  • Chesapeake currently conducts business with over 250 local Louisiana companies for our operations in the Haynesville
  • Industry’s Economic Impact in 2008
    • Generated approximately $2.4 billion in new business sales within the state of Louisiana.
    • Created nearly $3.9 billion in household earnings.
    • Generated an increase of 32,742 new jobs within the state in 2008. As a reference point, this is slightly larger than total employment in all of Louisiana’s banks and credit unions. The job multiplier is remarkably large in this case due to the fact that $3.2 billion in lease and royalty payments were injected into the state’s economy by the extraction firms.
    • Increased state and local tax revenues by at least $153.3 million due to the extraction activities in the Haynesville Shale.
  • Chesapeake’s Community Activity – Together WE ALL WIN!
    • Growing list of partners in NW Louisiana
    • Scholarships, vehicle donations, and community sponsorships,
astute federal policies will allow natural gas to be the clean energy bridge
Astute Federal Policies Will Allow Natural Gas to Be the Clean Energy “Bridge”
  • Natural gas is an affordable alternative to imported oil and gasoline and supports the use of such intermittent renewables as wind and solar with clean baseload
  • When used directly as CNG, natural gas provides
    • Up to 30% fewer C02 emissions
    • Up to 70% fewer smog-forming pollutants
    • An answer to a carbon regulated world
      • Transportation sector emissions represent 40-70% of all pollution


  • Natural gas can be used indirectly as the power behind the “plug”
    • PHEV’s and EV’s will require “clean” power for optimal environmental benefit
compressed natural gas cng the energy answer
Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) - The Energy Answer!
    • Produces 93-95% less overall toxics and reduces greenhouse emissions by 20-30% compared to gasoline and diesel vehicles.
    • 98% of the natural gas use is produced in North America. We purchase 70% of our oil from foreign nations.
    • Natural gas reserves continue to be discovered and increase each year. The U.S. has enough natural gas to last for 120 years and beyond.
    • CNG costs on average are over one third less than conventional gasoline at the pump.
