The Barnett Shale is considered to be the "granddaddy" of all U.S. shale plays, as it was the formation in which Mitchell Energy & Development first successfully implemented the technology necessary to unlock shale gas in the early 1990s.
The Barnett Shale is located in the Bend Arch-Fort Worth Basin, this north Texas shale play is hailed for its gas-bearing potential. The development of hydraulic fracturing technology has been key to unlocking this play's potential due to the tight nature of the reservoir.
The Barnett Shale is a geological formation and rich source of natural gas located in the Fort Worth Basin in Northeast Texas. The shale consists of sedimentary rock made of clay and quartz and spans 5,000 square miles, beneath about 18 North Texas counties.
Barnett Shale is a hydrocarbon-producing geological formation consisting of sedimentary rocks and stretching from the Dallas–Fort Worth metroplex west and south, covering 5,000 square miles.
