The Fayetteville Shale is an unconventional natural gas play found in Arkansas and is a part of the Arkoma Basin. Its geology is likened to the Barnett Shale in North TX and the Caney Shale on the Oklahoma side of the Arkoma Basin.

The Fayetteville Shale stretches approximately 50 miles from Fort Smith to Little Rock and ranges from 50-550 feet thick and can be found from 1,500-6,500 feet deep. This play is named after the city of Fayetteville, Arkansas.

Natural Gas Aplenty in the Fayetteville Shale

The shale is best known for its’s natural gas resources. This resource and the land it dwells in requires hydraulic fracturing to extract the gas. This “fracking” is necessary because the shale is trapped in a tight rock formation. Major producers in the Fayetteville Shale include Southwestern Energy, BHP Billiton, Chesapeake and XTO.

According to the US Energy Information Administration, it is estimated that this specific shale play once held 13,240 billion cubic feet of unproved, recoverable gas.

The average well in the Fayetteville Shale is estimated to produce around 1.3 billion cubic feet of gas. Contact Stag Minerals today if you’re looking to sell your mineral rights.
