Nothing to do with oil or gas..just need to vent

A friend of mine died yesterday. She was only 42 years old. She did not have cancer or some other horrible disease. She was not in an accident. She was shot to death by the man who claimed to love her. She left him last Friday. He called her yesterday and asked her to come to his apartment. Unfortunately she went. He was waiting there with a shot gun. He shot her twice as she tried to escape then turned the gun on himself. He left behind 2 children to wonder why he would kill and commit… Continue

Haynesville Shale Basics for the Newbies out there

Since this site has gotten so big and there are so many newbies on here, I thought I would do a little basics outline for folks this time. Let me prefice this by saying that leasing has slowed to a crawl at this point and Chesapeake is backing out of many deals in areas they do not hold the majority. That said, I do think the market will stabalize and the leasing activity will ebb and flow for the next several years so information about drilling and leasing is still relevant. I hope this helps… Continue

An interesting tidbit of inormation

As you all know by now my neighborhood is held by production from a 1955 lease and a well in a completely different section. I and some of my neighbors have spent the past 3 weeks discussing the need to move forward with a demand for release and possible litigation with all of the folks in the affected area. There has been much discussion re, the attorney fee, court costs, etc.



There have been many questions raised and, since more and more people out there are finding themselves in… Continue

An Unpopular View

I have always felt we are responsible for ourselves because we really cannot depend on others to be responsible for us. When I was sixteen I quit school, packed my bags and left home. I ended up homeless for a while then was blessed with a son who made me want to be more. My son and I were on food stamps and lived in government subsidized housing and I received Pell Grants when I finally got my GED and started college. I was grateful for the help but never saw it as a hand out instead I thought… Continue

A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To Sign The Letter Of Intent

A funny thing happened on the way to sign the letter of intent..NOT!



I have been working since May for my area. I went door to door and talked to folks in my section about mineral rights and the need to collectively bargain. I had meetings in my living room then moved them to my yard when there were too many to fit into the house. Soon people from outside my section were joining our group and we had representatives from 8 sections.



I have been negotiating with the O&G… Continue

The Podium is yours sir.

I had an interesting experience this Sunday. I was scheduled to speak to a local homeowners association. The turn out was great, around 400 people guessing from how full the auditorium was. A member of the Homeowners association went before me and did a great job giving about a 10 minute speech regarding things he had seen on a recent trip to Fort Worth and his concerns regarding the impact of the Haynesville shale on this inner city neighborhood.



My turn came to speak and I began my… Continue

My first gohaynesvilleshale.com blog

My first gohaynesvilleshale.com blog:

Haynesville asked me to do a blog every other week here on gohaynesvilleshale.com. I decided my first entry should be a little bit of history about how I got involved in all of this so here goes.

I have 3.5 acres in a Desoto Parish neighborhood. We were one of the first families to move into our subdivision. After my divorce I chose to stay here with my boys because it is such a peaceful area filled with good hardworking families. One of those… Continue
