Long Overdue Update...

I'm sorry it has taken so long for me to post an update! It may have seemed that I had fallen off the face of the earth, but no, I have been spending the last several weeks traveling the back roads of Haynesville Parishes. I rarely have cell phone reception, much less access to the internet for my computer.

I have met more wonderful people in the last few weeks than I ever imagined, due largely in part to my finally becoming familiar with my way around. I was born and raised in an… Continue

An update on my haynesville shale learning endeavor...

I am thoroughly familiar with the internet, but this is my first blog so hang in there as I learn the routine.

I have spent the last two weeks bouncing back and forth from DeSoto Parish, Red River, Caddo, and Bossier. Along with meeting people, I have also tried to gain a little first hand knowledge of the court houses. As I said before, I am not pushy enough to be a salesman, and I have learned this characteristic would come in handy venturing into the Clerk's Office. I had to ask… Continue

Attempting to learn more and document the process...

I'm a 24 year old one semester away from a Biology degree, not your typical oil and gas researcher. However, I grew up with a grandfather working extensively in the oil field services area, and my uncles were destined to follow. I attended UL in Lafayette, and was introduced to the off shore drilling aspect, and was also made familiar with the business and investment portion of the industry. I was born and raised in the Haughton area, with my family dispursed over Bossier, DeSoto, and Union…

Was UL known as SLI (Southwest Louisiana Institute) back at the time my alma mater was Louisiana Polytechnic Institute? Now known as Louisiana Tech University. Seems all the college names have been modified in La. A good friend of mine played basketball for SLI and later coached at Northwestern La. I graduated from Tech in 1957.

Keep all of us posted on your adventures. I like it.

Just caught your blog and find in entertaining. I am glad to see a young person interested in the business. I have been doing this for 17 years and was one of very few young landmen in the early '90s.
You will learn a lot poking around like you are but you should try to intern with a landman for a couple weeks and help them lease, run records or whatever to get some hands on. It may be tough to break in with the intensity of the activity in N LA but if you’re upfront with your objectives you should be able to find someone that will help you.
I was working up there in the start of the frenzy in 2008 and it was a great experience. I am a in-house landman but started in the business doing field work. I have never looked back on picking the career path and have not only learned about the oil and gas business but it opens your eyes to all types of business circumstances and objectives. There are two stories to every deal and each party tries to make the best deal they can. The industry gets a bad rap (some deserved) but overall it is a hard working group of individuals that keep it moving and the climate is always changing. Either with a new play, land owner relations, oil and gas prices or government regulation, there always seems to be something that the industry has to adapt to. That is also what makes the business so enjoyable, it is ever changing and you are always learning.
Keep it up and happy to answer questions.
