Although these bid tracts may or may not be associated with Austin Chalk I think this is the best place to post this discussion. Feel free to re-post to parish groups if you want to take ownership and carry the discussion forward. Under Inland Tracts review the information for Tracts 44135-44144. Use this link:
It will be interesting to see if they get a lease of any sort. There was one for the Mississippi from just above St. Francisville down toward Baton Rouge. And now is the time it should expire, so my guess is they are trying to drum a some more lease money. Our lease expired in July last year. Not a peep out of anybody but with the price of petroleum at or below $50 all is quite. So I do not expect anything will come of it.
