    Comstock delayed in completing Haynesville and Bossier shale wells

    By Oil & Gas Financial Journal staff

    Frisco, Texas-based Comstock Resources Inc. (NYSE: CRK) says has been experiencing significant delays in completing its Haynesville or Bossier shale wells due to the limited availability of high pressure pumping services, according to a press release issued by the company on Oct. 19. The situation was previously mentioned when the company reported its second-quarter operating results.

    As of Sept. 30, Comstock had 26 Haynesville or Bossier shale wells drilled and waiting on completion. Going forward, the company has been successful in obtaining pressure pumping and other related services which will allow it to frac 14 wells before the end of the year. With six operated rigs drilling in the Haynesville and Bossier shale, Comstock expects to drill another 10 wells in the fourth quarter giving the company an estimated 22 wells to carry over into 2011 for completion.

    In response to the weak natural gas prices, Comstock plans to release one of the 6 rigs in November and is considering moving an additional rig to South Texas to be utilized in its Eagle Ford shale drilling program in 2011.

    Comstock also said that the company has entered into an agreement with a major service provider to provide the company with a dedicated frac crew for its North Louisiana operations in early 2011. The dedicated crew will allow Comstock to complete its backlog of Haynesville and Bossier shale wells during 2011 as well as keep current with the company's 2011 anticipated drilling activity. In addition, Comstock is in the process of finalizing agreements for completion services for its 2010 and anticipated 2011 Eagle Ford shale drilling program in South Texas.
