Good Monday morning Joe. My main source for hearing conversation about leasing around West Feliciana is to listen on the sidewalk outside of Church and to listen at Dinner Parties. My wife and I did both this weekend and though the owners of large tracts would not give up much, it does seem that the offers are getting much better, at least that is my impression. The discussion on GHS about leasing to 1334 is insightful to our situation. So far as I can tell, no one will admit having discerned if any of the competing persons making offers are with EOG or that all are "flippers." Reading what Skip Peel says in the before mentioned discussions, some of these guys have the acerage to demand that information. So I sit tight. Charles
Joe, my name is Charles Jenkins . . . I am a resident of West Feliciana Parish and am watching with interest the lease possibilities being put forth here. I remember with appreciation your analysis from the TMS days and would like to talk with you about our current situation, if you would be willing. I am not associated with any Oil or Gas Company, just an old retired guy. I used to post on GHS under the name of Cocodrie Man. Hamilton Willis suggested I would do good to talk with you. If you are willing, I will send to you my mobile number. Thanks
Happy New Year, Joe. FYI, Robert Johnson is an Internet promoter who gets paid for posting articles about a client, in this case "Oil Guru" Dr. Daniel Fine, in as many parts of the Web as possible. It helps make Fine look like an expert, whether he is or not, if someone googles his name. You will notice that Robert Johnson never makes a reply. He only posts discussions and then "favorites" his own discussions. Keith and I have discussed Robert Johnson and his use of GHS to promote Dr. Fine but don't see any reason to take any action as long as the rules are observed and members don't object.
joe, fyi. The "detailed reports" posted by John Matherne are not compiled by him. They are regular reports from the database which he has downloaded. He does deserve credit for spending the time to find them but the more one uses the SONRIS databases, the easier they are to navigate.
It has helped. We do have a lease on our property that extends through 2013. IMHO it's a slightly above-average lease (compared to other $ figures I've heard in our area). The lease was signed by a trust company before we were beneficiaries, so we're new to the property and I'm just now working through understanding the terms on the lease.
Joe, I don't have time to post links to the recent TMS and Austin Chalk unit apps. Do me a favor and use this link or post this link so that members in those groups can do their own tracking of unit apps. Thanks, Skip
Hope everything is going well for you. I am a little concerned about a comment that I received from "Blessing". It has nothing to do with o&g and is of a personal nature. I received the same one from "Peace" when I first joined this site. I clicked on the name and saw that a msg. was sent to 16 members at the same time last night(e-mail address from UK). I am wondering if this is something that Keith should be made aware of.
Hello! I hope the site is a place for you to learn, network and contribute. My name is Keith and I started the site in June of 2008 to open up lines of communication between landowners. Since then, we have grown to over 13,000 members.
Because our network has grown word-of-mouth, I want to encourage you to invite your friends and family by clicking here.
There are a couple things you should check out. 1) Check out current discussions. 2) Join in on the County and Parish Groups. By joining a County or Parish, you are networking locally with people who share similar concerns.
Be sure to read up on how to navigate the site HERE. This will help you get the most out of the site.
As a member, should you ever be on the recieving end of crudeness, rudeness or spam, let me know. The site is a peered monitored site and we need your assistance.
As exciting as this is, we know that we have a responsibility to do this thing correctly. After all, we want the farm to remain a place where the family can gather for another 80 years and beyond. This site was born out of these desires. Before we started this site, googling "shale' brought up little information. Certainly nothing that was useful as we negotiated a lease. Read More
