Barnett Shale Natural Gas Field
When you liquidate your mineral, royalty or overriding royalty interests in the robust Barnett
Shale with Phillips Energy Partners, you can be assured you’re partnered with one of the most
experienced and well-capitalized mineral buyers in the industry.
Our 100-year legacy and financial strength has allowed us to help thousands of mineral owners get
closer to where they want to be by offering our clients the right to secure a competitive cash
settlement upfront, instead of waiting for operators to produce from the formation.
According to the Barnett Shale Energy Education Council, the 24-county field encompasses
5,000 square miles in North Texas and is the largest and most developed onshore natural gas
field in the state and, what experts believe, in the United States.
Although it was first discovered in 1981, it wasn’t until the late 1990s that it became
commercially productive to drill the Barnett Shale due to fracture technique breakthroughs
necessary to penetrate the tight shale.
While the Barnett Shale is predominantly a natural gas play, and has become less attractive to
some due to a significant decrease in natural gas prices, we still see tremendous value in these
assets. We have been aggressively acquiring Barnett minerals since 2007 and our pace has not
slowed, purchasing more than 26,000 acres in the last two years. We remain resolved to
expand our Barnett holdings despite the significant downturn in the commodity price.
