BPCC Meeting

Anyone go to the BPCC thing Tuesday night? I was there and was very disappointed in the speakers. There was very little new info and most of the speakers were obviously on the "side" of the O&G companies. (Take "side" however you wish) I was out in the lobby handing out flyers about income tax effects of lease/royalty income and heard a lot of people leaving saying the same thing. The person they put up for "asset management" was good, if at this point what you are worried about is dying… Continue

Let's learn from landowners in North Texas and the Barnett Shale

I own about 100 acres in Shelby Co, Texas- and I also have five properties in the Barnett Shale - in North Texas. The first lease I signed with only got $2000 per acre in August' 2007. I signed my second lease in April'2008- and we received checks on the day of signing (not drafts) for $23,000 per acre with a 25.5% for a 3 year lease- which is renewable after 3 years with an additional cash bonus at that time of 3/4 of the initial bonus. Prices continue to go up ... now landowners are getting… Continue

This morning there was a large convoy of over 30 large well service trucks from Pennsylvania pull into Shreveport on I220. I heard rumors that some companies were pulling off the Marcellus shale and moving into our area.

My first gohaynesvilleshale.com blog:

Haynesville asked me to do a blog every other week here on gohaynesvilleshale.com. I decided my first entry should be a little bit of history about how I got involved in all of this so here goes.

I have 3.5 acres in a Desoto Parish neighborhood. We were one of the first families to move into our subdivision. After my divorce I chose to stay here with my boys because it is such a peaceful area filled with good hardworking families. One of those… Continue

Taxes

This thing is going to have a big impact on taxes, social security and medicare benefits for people when they get money. Yet I've seen virtually nothing in the media or on websites about it.

I'll be right up front, I work for H&R Block during the tax season and have over 20yrs experience. But for the record, I am NOT pushing Block on anyone. Besides advice and questions are always free. ;-)

I've gone to a couple of meetings to brief on this and would like to go to as many more as… Continue

LEASE CLAUSES for No-Surface Operations

FOR INFORMATIONAL PURPOSES ONLY



Here are some lease clauses that landowners can talk over with their attorney. These clauses are more favorable toward the landowner and cover a lot of different items that I have not seen mentioned in this forum. Paragraph 2. a. makes sure that you get the full market price of the sale of your minerals and that the company cannot make a "brother-in-law deal" with your minerals.



Remember, these are just samples to discuss. I may have a few… Continue

The firm says Range was a darling of the E&P space in 2007 and into 1Q08, however as infrastructure delays and water permitting/cost questions emerged in the Marcellus Shale, investors began to sell the Marcellus names and Range was a go to call.
