More Barnett Shale Rigs Coming Up - 100 More from Quicksilver this year

The article also talks about Chief drilling, which was bought by Devon Energy.

Another Barnett Shale driller, Quicksilver Resources of Fort Worth, plans to add six new rigs to the 10 already working in Hood, Parker, Somervell and Bosque counties. President Glenn Darden said Quicksilver will drill 100 wells in the Barnett Shale this year, 15 more than originally planned.

Darden said Quicksilver recently brought in a well in north central Hood County with initial production of 5 million cubic feet per day. He said two wells spaced at 55 acres apart in southern Hood County recently had combined initial production of 6 million cubic feet.

"We're seeing consistent performance in our wells," said Darden, whose company has 285,000 acres under lease south and west of Fort Worth and has also built a processing plant near Granbury served by a 120-mile pipeline gathering system.

Darden said the processing plant, which opened late in 2005, will be expanded in capacity from the current 75 million cubic feet per day to 200 million cubic feet per day.

I'll have to start taking pics of the changes in Somervell County as we get more and more rigs in.
