The Fayetteville Shale, is a black, organic-rich rock of Mississippian age that
underlies much of northern Arkansas and adjacent states. It produces natural
gas in the central portion of the Arkoma basin. The productive wells penetrate
the Fayetteville Shale at depths between a few hundred and 7000 feet below
the surface and at elevations of between a few hundred feet above sea level
and 7000 feet below sea level.
The first wells to produce natural gas from the Fayetteville Shale were
traditional vertical wells with low to moderate production rates. However, in
the past several years vertical wells have been drilled down to just above the
Fayetteville Shale, turned, and drilled horizontally through the rock unit. These
horizontal wells intersect large numbers of vertical fractures which bring a
flow of gas into the well and drain the surrounding rock. Fractures are also
induced by pumping pressurized fluids down the well bore to fracture the rock
unit. These additional fractures enhance the permeability of the Fayetteville
Shale and allow more efficient gas production.
