The Empire Strikes Back
Today, Chespeake, Devon, and Tudor, Pickering and Holt published objections to Lynn Pittinger's and my articles on the Barnett and other shale plays. I choose not to respond at this time since there is little substance in these commentaries.
The only response that is appropriate at this time is contained in the accompanying graphs of cumulative Barnett Shale production. These are not interpretations but hard data. I leave it to our critics to explain why production trends cannot be extrapolated to the levels claimed by operators (click images to enlarge).
