What are the terms of the offers?

I haven't been able to get all the details yet, Jon.  All I know so far is $400/acre bonus and split royalty.  25% above the Cotton Valley and 20% below. 

That is what I have heard also. With a 3yr lease & 4 yr  option.

I spoke to a rep with Miller Land Professionals this afternoon. They are offering us $350.00 an acre for 3 years with 20% royalty. If they haven't hit anything in three years, we will get another check with a lease extension of 4 more years, no option. Total contact of 7 years. This company is a broker company, the maim company is remainimg secret until they drill. This is what I was told today. Is this a fair offer for this area? I ask this because in the Caddo parish area, the price per acre was much higher with 25% royalty. Thoughts or comments are appreciated, since we are still considering this offer.
Thank you.

Lease value is location and acreage size specific.  No one can give you an accurate answer without that information.

Thank you skip peel and Mike, I really appreciate the advice. I'm afraid all the land owners around me will jump on this first time lease and miss a real opportunity. What will happen if I'm the only hold out with 10 acres in Sec. 23-23-10?
Will they drill anyway and take my minerals right out from under me?

If the operator forms a compulsory unit, you will be subject to force pooling.  However you may enter into a lease at any time even after the well is drilled and producing.  Operators prefer to have 100% of minerals in a unit under lease if they can get them at terms they find acceptable.  The best time to negotiate a lease is after a well has been permitted or spud.  You just have to decide what you are willing to accept in the way of lease terms.  Should you not receive an offer that you find acceptable and you choose to remain unleased, the operator will withhold your proportional share of production until the well costs are recovered and then pay you 100% of your share of production subject to periodic deductions for operating expenses.  That is "if" the well is productive and "if" it is sufficiently so to repay the cost of drilling the well.
