Introduction

In 2016, the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) completed an updated assessment of undiscovered, technically recoverable oil and gas resources in the Upper Jurassic Haynesville Formation of the onshore U.S. Gulf Coast Province (Paxton and others, 2017). The Haynesville Formation was assessed using both the standard continuous (unconventional) and conventional methodologies established by the USGS for four assessment units (AUs): (1) Haynesville Western Shelf Carbonate Gas and Oil AU, (2) Haynesville Eastern Shelf Sandstone and Carbonate Oil and Gas AU, (3) Haynesville Shale Continuous Gas AU, and (4) Haynesville Shale Peripheral Continuous Gas AU. The revised assessment resulted in total estimated mean resources of 1.1 billion barrels of oil, 195.8 trillion cubic feet of gas, and 866 million barrels of natural gas liquids. The purpose of this report is to provide supplemental documentation of the input parameters used in the USGS 2016 Haynesville Formation assessment.
