Since that address is an executive suite, not sure how ready they are for operations of Haynesville wells in and around the Shreveport water supply.  Vignesh used to be with Millennial Energy.

Both principals are connected to Glendale Energy Capital and do not appear to have any operating experience.  Maybe an investment anticipating a WI position?

Vignesh does.  He was with several e & p companies prior to Millennial.  I assume they will put together an operating team.

North of Cross Lake would put the AOI into the area that has been reported to have increased clay content.  The new well completion designs are impressive but wouldn't seem to have the ability to overcome as less ductile lithology. Opinion?

I agree.  Horsepower can only unlock the rock so much.  It has to be at least decent rock to start with.

jay

That's what I am thinking.  In my reply above I meant to write more, not less, ductile.  Ductile:  able to be deformed without losing toughness; pliable, not brittle.

Saw a lease offer from Mammoth today for T17N R15W section 25.  It had two options.

#1 Bonus of $1000 per net mineral acre, 3/16 royalty, 3 year term with 2 year option.

#2 Bonus of $750 per net mineral acre, 1/5 royalty, 3 year term with 2 year option.

I do not have a dog in this hunt, however I believe both offers need some serious tweaking. JMO

That #1 royalty offer is ridiculous.  

jay

I generally agree with jay but would add the following.  My opinion would be informed by location.  If the offer was for the northern portion of 18N-15W, I might consider the one fifth royalty based on other lease terms advantageous to the lessor.  For Section 25, 17N-15W, I would not consider either offer.  I would want a quarter royalty and a bonus per acre in the $1000 to $1500 range.  What is known at this point is that the southern two thirds of 17N - 15W are dis-risked.  Meaning the chances of drilling economic wells is high.  The risk of finding non-economic rock goes up as you go north.  The actions of companies at this point tend to point to them thinking that the chances of making good wells extends to the southern two thirds of 18N-15W.  I hope they are right but anything in the northern two section tiers of 18N and north from there is a crap shoot owing to the historic Haynesville wells drilled there that were not economic due to increased clay content.
