HK has gone "all in" on shale gas. If they want to HBP their shale leasehold and continue to lease and keep up with the Chesapeakes in the Haynesville and elsewhere, they have to raise cash.
$320,000,000 divided by their acreage total of 42,000 (net acreage) as of HK April 2008 presentation....

$7,619.05 per acre value. I wonder what private company bought it?

I could be wrong but it was fun to punch in those numbers into my calculator. :o)
Keep in mind this is for producing acreage, and would include all the wells and equipment, not just the leases.
Clayton Williams has a few units adjacent to KCS in Terryville.I wonder if they might be the buyer. They have been forming some new units in the area lately.
Jay, if it would have been an existing company I would have said J-W or Samson.
WildHorse Resources, LLC was the buyer
Are they located in Houston?
I'm not sure.
Yes, they are located in Houston. My lease came up for the two year extension in Webster Parish and Wildhorse, (Wildhorse bought the lease from BroadOak) chose not to extend the lease. There are four people in their office and we talked back and forth about the extension, but they finally decided not to re-up the lease. Now I know why.
Wild who resources??? I am assuming the team of 4 has no intention of developing the field further but will more than likely flip it to another buyer??
What's up with some of these companies (Mustang/Blue Dolphin comes to mind) that have domicile addresses in Wilmington, Delaware?

The State of Delaware has laws favorable to corporations.
