Barnett Shale Fact Sheet
Barnett Shale Fact Sheet
NORTH TEXAS
The Barnett Shale is regarded as the nation’s most important energy
development in the last 80 years and is considered the birthplace of
the shale gas revolution.
The Barnett Shale, located in
the Fort Worth Basin of North Texas,
continues to be one of the largest
natural gas fields in North America.
Devon was one of the earliest movers
in the Barnett, acquiring its initial lease
position through the 2002 purchase of
Mitchell Energy. Devon was the first
to test the application of horizontal
drilling and hydraulic fracturing in the
Barnett Shale.
The successful
results enhanced
Devon’s drilling
economics and
production,
and ultimately
transformed the
Fort Worth Basin
into one of the
top-producing
gas fields in
North America
and kick-started
the shale gas revolution.
Devon is one of the most prolific
producers in the Barnett, accounting for
more than 1 billion cubic feet of natural
gas equivalent per day.
About Devon

energy company engaged in finding
