Modern Exploration's Barnett Shale Drilling
Since 1981 several oil and gas companies continue to expand The Barnett Shale in the Fort Worth Basin in northeast Texas. The Barnett Shale begins near central Texas and extends all the way to near the Texas-Oklahoma state line.

Modern Exploration, Inc. gladly continues to explore and help develop this Mississippian-age, organic rich shale. It just might be (when all is said and done) the largest gas field in the United States.


Barnett Shale

The Barnett Shale is geological formation of economic significance. It consists of Mississippian sedimentary rocks in the U.S. State of Texas. The formation is estimated to stretch from the city of Dallas west, covering 5,000 square miles (13,000 km²) and at least 17 counties.

Some experts have suggested the Barnett Shale may be the largest onshore natural gas field in the United States. The field is proven to have 2.1 trillion cubic feet (59 km³) of natural gas, and is widely estimated to contain as much as 30 trillion cubic feet of natural gas resources. Oil has also been found in lesser quantities, but sufficient (with recent high oil prices) to be commercially viable.
