In La. the landowner has a right to see the well log. Don't know about ARK? If someone knows the landowner in southern Columbia where this 11000 ft. well is being drilled it may be the only way ya'll will ever know if the shale is present. That is the way most seem to be finding out down here.
What I heard today from a friend that called me was it is south of the river bridge on the Dutch John road which will be around the Motor Cross track or beyond it...He didn't mention the names you gave me. It was the old name of the place. He didn't know if there was an actual ck. passing hands. He did believe it was the LS developement that signed the owners which tells me what I need to know. Dont worry about the O&G...they will be back. I didn't have anything before all this and have nothing to lose by being patient! Ten years and 20 counties later they are still leasing in the Barnett shale!!!!!
Allen is this is Lone Star Land Developement..they aren't actually giving any money to my knowledge....just trying to flip leases. I really hope you find there is someone else who will actually hand landowners a good check
Don't let Pittboss quell your hopes that maybe you will be in the Shale in Benton. I hope that you are.

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
