Christmas - Viewed from the other side

Almost five years ago now, I was a frequent poster on a forum about the movie, The Passion of the Christ. I decided to try and emulate C. S. Lewis' magnificent Screwtape Letters. (I am sure I shall probably have to apologize to him profusely when we do meet someday.) Below is what I posted then.

No Time to Relax

I’m getting ready to load up the van for our Christmas drive. Loading up the vehicle became more complicated after marriage, and then even more complicated after the birth of two little ones – girls at that! Of course, my philosophy on packing differs from my wife’s. She’s more into trails. Trails of items ranging from shoe boxes to grocery bags filled with odds and ends, and of course regular luggage. I’m learning to chuckle at it, but I do find myself asking why? Why all this hassle? After… Continue

"Haynesville" the Movie Now Exclusively Available on

"Haynesville" the Movie is now available in our internet store. If you haven't seen the trailer, scroll further down.

I have seen this documentary, and I was impressed. Mr. Kallenberg did a tremendous job capturing the dynamics involved with a shale play. I truly believe that this movie can change the way this nation looks at energy. This movie is not only for those involved in… Continue

Here's the list...

1. Louisiana

2. Hawaii

3. Florida

4. Tennessee

5. Arizona

6. Mississippi

7. Montana

8. South… Continue

Seismographic Survey from Global Geophysical Services

Has anyone been contacted from Global Geophysical Services for a seismographic survey? I've received a letter from them asking for permission to do this survey on our land, basically surface rights only for one year. They are offering $25 per acre and claim that there will not be any damage to the land, just 3.5" holes that they plan on filling when they are finished. Are there any negative consequences to signing this and does the compensation seem fair?

Natural Gas Futures Near $5.90 /Per Million British Thermal Units At Mid-December 2009

A 7 percent jump for natural gas futures occurs during energy trading on Dec. 17 as the Energy Information Administration reports a drop for U. S. natural gas supplies. During Dec. 17 morning trading, natural gas for January delivery was up 40 cents, or 7.3%, at $5.86 per million British thermal units. Cold weather in recent days over the northern part of the U. S. is partially responsible for this drop in natural gas supplies.

what might a well located in section 32 17n 15w expect to produce?

For some time I have been aware that there were Drilling & Production Units formed as other than HA (Haynesville) Units but which none the less included the HA zone in their depth definition. In the Summer of 2008, the Commissioner of the LA. Office of Conservation issued an order forbidding the inclusion of the HA zone in a unit with sandstone formations. Those units already approved were grandfathered. I posed a question to the LOC staff requesting to know how many of those units…

Need information on Sec. 9 Twn 16N Rge 15W

There is currently a well in section 9 (South of Buncomb Rd. just past Woolworth Rd.) permitted to drill into section 3, and as of yesterday is permitted to drill into section 4 from the same site. My question - does anyone have any information as to if and or when they will be actually drilling for gas in section 9 itself?

I have heard rumor that they were supposed to drill this month but I have not seen an approved permit to that affect.

Approximately 130+ acres of the section did… Continue

"Formal notice of withdrawal"?

We have never had any type of communication with this Land Company, or any other Land Company for that matter. Below is the contents of the letter we received today:



Mr. *******,
