Royal Dutch Shell Plc sold off its last package of Haynesville assets on Dec. 30 as the oil and gas supermajor finalizes its exit from the shale play.

The Anglo-Dutch company had previously sold off a bulk of its Haynesville assets roughly five years ago to Vine Oil & Gas LP and its partner Blackstone for $1.2 billion in cash. Shell’s remaining assets in the Haynesville gas play consisted of a nonoperated position, the company website said.
