  Coal prices averaged $85 from 2009-2021, then skyrocketed to the the current $400 starting Aug 2020. Cannot find a Lignite quote but assuming it has moved also. Wondering if Dolet Hills would re start Lignite mining if prices persist?  Profitability potential must have improved enormously.

I own property in section r15wt12n19.  Received a letter from Comstock that they wanted to make the well that is closed for future use the following: register 19-18 HC No.1 Alt.  the plat that I received shows other wells in the same section as the same thing.  HA RA SU60 28-AA-30 is the information on the plat.  what does this mean?  The plat also shows two new wells being drilled on the north part of the section and being pulled from section 18.  The alt. wells also show being pulled from section 18.  I would like to know also on an alt. well if they come and and work on it.  this well was drilled back  in the 80's and is not a Haynesville shell well but they want it to be a Haynesville shell alt. well. Help me to understand this please.

Thank you Henry.

Mary Alison,

Note-- the surface location is in 14-11-11, so look in that section on sonris to find your well.  As Larry said, it is not a bad well at all.  It appears CHK has choked it back some, but so we cannot tell what it would flow at otherwise.  However, the well in 22-11-11 is producing very well - it's up to almost 5 Bcfe to date - so maybe this one will produce similarly over time.  If your family member is unleased, he/she will have to wait a while to reach payout -- this well has produced only about 2.5 Bcfe of gas so far.  You'll have to reach at least 4 Bcfe of production for your well to reach payout (very rough estimate).

Thank you Larry.

Sorry but the post did not copy right, But go to SONRIS, click on the Well Number when the box opens, add your number, 242981, it will then take you to the well information. Scroll down to production. There you will find the month by month production that CHK turned into the DNR and it is then posted on SONRIS.  You need to get a copy of the Lease, go to the DeSota parish court house, have the name of the owner, the parish, etc and tell them you need a copy of the signed lease. The well is owned by CHK.

Your well was drilled and is produced by CHK, from Sonris posting not a bad well;

Does anyone have info. on EDDY 23-11-11 H.  Serial #242981 in DeSoto Parish?  A family member has some an interest in this well and was not notified of completion cost or anything else, and believes that CHK deliberately made the cost low so as to regain some position.  His interest is 65 acres. There was a dry hole drilled in the 1970's.  He has not received any royalty and wants to know if this well is worth filing a lawsuit to recover. I think the royalty obligation from CHK is 1/8th...I am not sure of that %.  Are not they obligated to contact owners with smaller working interest's?

How many of you check the SONRIS production site? Twice CHK has paid us less MCF than was/is listed on the SONRIS TABLE OF PRODUCTION, I have checked with SONRIS and asked them how accurate the listed production was on the List.  They told me that what ever the production company turns in is the amount listed and the company has several months to correct the amount if it is not correct.  Our last royalty check was short a little over 8000 MCF, I called, got NO reply, have sent 2 emails and have not heard back from CHK. I will continue until they do answer me or someone else.
