Jerry. I am unaware of any leasing activity in your area of north Bossier Parish. Two suggestions, also post your question on the Bossier Parish Group Page and review the activity of current drilling on the SONRIS Well Scout Report for your area. It is updated every Thursday. Good Luck.
don't know if it is legit but a friend of mine told me last week that a lady in his area told him that she recieved a letter from some sort of Antrim concern out of Lafayette. 250 per acre and 20% minerals. He got one a couple of days later. He had seen the one I got from Cobra for some property I have in Stonewall. He said it was not the same.
I will get more info from him this Sunday Skip....he lives just south of PD off HW3
Connell. Antrim is the name of the field just south of Plain Dealing. There are no producing wells in the field. We have discussed it in the past as there is a deep well there by Samson Contour that was drilled in 2006. This well was never produced and reported as Status 31 - Shut-In Dry Hole/Future Utility since it's completion. Recently, 6-4-09 Samson changed the Status to 32 and filed for a work permit to P&A (Plug & Abandon) the Forcap. I am unaware of any current leasing but will check for you if you can get me the name of the Lafayette company offering the leases you refer to.
I heard about those two...but they also have some working wells in a community called motts, east of PD, Carterville on 157 toward springhill and bellevue i believe...i am sure that mose experts are still saying nada to that area but last year when i worked in the east texas fields attending fracs...a few of the people told me that even though the maps show it short of the Arkansas line for the most part that it extended into southern Arkansas.
i am not disputing the experts, much respect to you guys...
i believe that a fissure will be hit and a crack will allow the gas to flow up in that area and those of us on the arkansas border will get a little dough too...wishful thinking ahuh...
my sister and i have about 120 acres up there if some one wants to make an offer...smile...i must have the only acreage in Stonewall that has not been drilled..go figure..oh well
Connell. Don't pout! LOL! There is actually a good bit of DeSoto that is undrilled. For HA. Much old shallow production there holding all depth leases with low royalties. The lessees holding those drilling rights will hold out for a big payday as long as they have sufficient continuing production to hold their leases in force. Good Luck with Plain Dealing and Arkansas.
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
