Disregard my question about your name on the other site..I answer your first comment before reading your second. I also wish SWAMO great luck. I went to school with Snake and he is really a great guy!!
Thanks for the invite but I am already on that site. I am Terry on the Beech Springs site..are you Parker? I have already decided to go with Beech Springs. I have the same feelings that we might be better off in tighter groups. I have been trying to talk to my neighbors in BC and hopefully some will also decide to join Beech Springs. Thanks for your work on the Beech Springs site!!
Hi neighbor, some of my land is in beaver creek. I did not take your comments as knocking swamo. In my opinion, we are all in this together no matter what group we decide to join. I want everyone to be educated about this play. I don't want my neighbors to be taken advantage of. I have heard your argument before........I am sticking with swamo. A group is only as strong as it's weakest link. I wish my neigbors in beech springs group the best of luck and maybe later on the groups can join forcres trade info and learn from one another. Our goal is the same. No one has written this book yet. We are on new ground. All we have to look at is the barrnet shale. The haynesville shale is 4th largest in world...maybe bigger. The barnett shale is not even in top ten. That fact kinda hit home with me. Its scary and exciting.
On another subject........hopefully you've lived in Minden area a while and can answer this question. This area to my understanding (section 25) is called Minden field. I was questioning mineral rights for the area. Looked up mine back to '91 and looks ok but someone said might need to go back further. The well on this section was plugged/dry i beleive in 1976. You heard anything about this?
The land in section 25 belongs to my church. They have asked me help secure a lease. My family leased 156 acres in Bienville Parish to Chesapeake. The best answer I can get concerning the Salt Domes is that all the gas was extracted years ago but the gas under neath is huge! I do not know how they go thru the salt, people do not want to address our questions concerning this subject. Please advise about the Beach Springs Meeting, who is in charge and is it a no fee? Snake is trying to get us to join his.
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
