The firm pioneered the PUD-heavy package, recognizing the advent of the resource play with slick water fracks in vertical wells in the Cotton Valley. Selling upside in a new play, with limited production data necessitated advising potential sellers as to the number of wells required and how much history was sufficient- a combination of technical acumen as well as feel for the market.
Shortly thereafter, Harrison sold the first major openly-marketed Barnett package. The play was new, the wells new, and the package-bought by Chesapeake – was in Johnson County, opening the play in areas without the Viola as a frack barrier.
Harrison sold the first Wolfberry package, a new play that led to the reopening of the Permian Basin. This required credible engineering, and the ability to communicate to industry the parameters that ultimately ushered in the horizontal activity of today.
