Minerals and Royalty: Or, What Did I Just Sell to That Guy?

Now that NAPE has been over for a couple of weeks, and the hangover(s) and short week after Mardi Gras has come to an end, I figured I would address a topic that has come up on more than a few occasions in various discussions on GHS, and seems to have been revived again in the wake of the latest mass mailings from mineral and royalty brokers.

I should probably mention here that my area of discussion, and the state in which I predominantly work is Louisiana. No knocks to the Texas and… Continue

State of the Industry, As Seen at NAPE (From an Observer's Perspective)

Many of you have looked to various indicators and bellwethers as to the general health of the industry as a whole, and in particular, how same will apply to the Haynesville Shale for the coming year. From those of us "in the business", many of us look to the turnout, prospects, and outlook gleaned at NAPE (formerly the North American Prospect Expo) as a significant bellwether as to the general state of the business in the coming year.

A little background:

NAPE began in… Continue

Dion, do you have an idea why work is so slow? This is the first time in 10 years that I don't have anything to do.

At 17:16 on July 16, 2013, Skip Peel - Independent Landman said…

I'm staying busy and doing just enough business to allow me to run to the mountains and go fishing on Toledo Bend whenever the spirit moves me.  Every day I am thankful to make a living doing what I do.  I've looked for this job all my life.  I will now enjoy it to the fullest as long as I am able.  I know just how you feel about the repetition and the know nothing, cranky members who come to rant.  I have to remind myself that they are a small minority and the majority appreciates all the industry members who invest time in answering questions and offering opinions.  Quite a few of them contact me privately on my site page or through my off site personal email.  They are often hesitant to participate in discussions.  I have 484 friends.  And I think that is confirmation that there are members who appreciate what I do.  I'm sure they feel the same way about you.  You are just not as prolific a poster as I am.  LOL!  I have about 178,000 points.  I hope you are staying busy and prospering.  We need to have lunch again.  If business takes you north, I'll meet you half way. 

Regards, Skip

Re:  Outdated Shout Message Off.  It's about time!  LOL!  How the hell are you?  Seeing my last comment below, I can still put you in touch with Jay.  He is an old curmudgeon, although he is younger than myself.  He may complain a lot but he continues to stick around for which I am thankful.

At 10:46 on February 13, 2013, Skip Peel - Independent Landman said…

Dion, Jay may not wish to reveal his company in an open discussion thread.  I can send him an email and see if he would care to pass along his private email address.  I feel sure he would not mind it in fact he would probably welcome it.  I communicate with him semi-regularly off site.

At 12:55 on June 30, 2012, Skip Peel - Independent Landman said…

Dion, FYI.  Just in case you would care to follow this new GD thread that seeks to find anyone willing to agree with his assessment that collusion occurred regarding leasing in the Ashland Field. here is the link:


No one I communicated with ever expressed interest in Ashland.  In fact, they were all puzzled why CHK would take such a large step out in such a strange direction.  Every other company was quickly headed SW and into E TX.  I can see why none were interested in a risky and unsubstantiated step out in a direction thought not to be prospective. Ah, but you'd never convince GD that CHK made a mistake and it makes perfect sense why no other company was interested in leasing in that area.

At 10:18 on June 30, 2012, Skip Peel - Independent Landman said…

Dion, I apologize for jumping into your discussion thread with GD.  I learned he was a fraud in the very earliest days of the site and have to bite my lip every time he gives poor advise to some unknowing member or demonizes the industry with unfounded comments.  He really is "a legend in his own mind".  I do my best to ignore him but sometimes he just gets my goat.  Regard, Skip

Dion, do you have any information on the timeline for drilling on R1R/ T6S/ section 1. This is the section west the Edwards #1 well. We have had recent activity in the neighborhood. Do you know who holds the permit to drill on that section?
At 19:10 on October 13, 2010, Linda Whatley said…
Yes, I agree Dion, courtesy is the best approach. I have seven leases with Chesapeake, and so far, my experience with each landman has been pleasant. I for one don't want to hold up progress on the drilling process...... that's why I recommended that Jack go ahead and sign........ do something good for others, and it will be returned to you twofold!
