In March 2008, several oil and gas companies announced the finding of what could potentially be the fourth largest deposit of natural gas in the world underneath northwestern Louisiana, southwestern Arkansas, and eastern Texas: the Haynesville Shale.   

The Louisiana Natural Resources Department has now created a website to provide information to the public related to the Haynesville Shale formation.  To visit the website, click here.

A blog has also been created to provide information with respect to the area.  To visit the blog, click here.
