This and That’s - Natural Gas

By: Victoria Lee Hall

In early 1890’s, President Harry Truman’s father, while drilling a water well, struck natural gas. He used it to heat his own house and the house of his neighbor. While the exact mechanism he used to heat the two houses is not known, it is known shortly before (in 1885), the Bunsen Burner was invented, leading to other inventions to heat houses. And, although that seems a long time ago, the very first known natural gas well was drilled by the Chinese in 211 B.C. Later, the Chinese adapted bamboo pipelines to transport natural gas to provide fuel for boiling water, heating, and the first known instances of lighting.

Still meeting. Still protecting landowners.

Some folks think that because the economy is bad and natural gas leasing activities have slowed down that the Haynesville Shale is over.

Well, it's not.

The HSLA is still holding meetings letting landowners know about our program, what to expect and how they can get a lease that's written in their favor - instead of the gas company.
