The Times announces that The City of Shreveport will host two meeting on the Haynesville Shale.
The first will be from 6 to 8:30 p.m. Thursday; the other will be from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. June 21. Both will be at the Shreveport Convention Center. Dubbed "Haynesville Shale 101," the city will use the meetings to provide handouts with information to help residents understand the terminology associated with the Haynesville Shale, general issues related to gas drilling, mineral leases, signing bonuses and royalties.
A panel, including city officials and property owners who have dealt with drilling and mineral leases, will talk. A question-and-answer session will follow. Mayor Cedric Glover will be available for one-on-one conversations, according to a city news release.
