    In conjunction with its large amount of potential NG reserves, its huge NG presence in BC, won't the agreement with Encana to build an LNG export facility in BC Canada propel APA even faster?

    How does APA compare to CHK in its NG holdiings?

    I know APA has from:

    EIA's Review of Emerging Resources: U.S. Shale Gas and Shale Oil Plays

    July 8, 2011

    “technically recoverable” Total US = 750 Tcf,

    Marcellus = 410 Tcf

    "Marketable NG”

    BC Liard Basin = 48 Tcf (based on production from 4 wells only)

    BC Horn river Basin =78 Tcf

    After CHK sells off its NG assets, will CHK still be #2 behind Exxon (due to XTO purchase)

    CLARIFICATION of my query [because Cramer just recommend APA]:

    How does APA compare to CHK in purely in its wet & dry NG holdiings? (which contributes to their 3 Beq total proven reserves)

    on July 8, 201, in EIA's Review of Emerging Resources: U.S. Shale Gas and Shale Oil Plays, EIA found for “technically recoverable” NG the Total US = 750 Tcf, while the total Marcellus was 410 Tcf.

    For comparison sake, APA guestimates it has from the BC Liard Basin = 48 Tcf "Marketable NG” (based on the production from 4 wells only)

    POINT: After CHK sells off its NG assets, will CHK remain #2 behind Exxon, or will APA become #2 ahead of both CHK and DVN?
