have you leased your land in sec 15? JAG plugged the Willamette Well a couple weeks ago and HK is re-leasing f what was released that was HBP. Brother has 60 Acres that was held..talking and hasn't signed, I have 40 unleased.
Jed, I have 70 acres in T16N-R10W-S22 and have an offer for $15K/25%. I have several tracts in Bienville, but live outside of New Orleans. I don't know any details of what's actually going on up there except what I read on gohaynesvilleshale. Do you by any chance have any phone numbers for Petrohawk, Chesapeak, XTO, Acadian, or anyone leasing in Bienville? My family (and heirs) have a number of tracts (some leased; some not) up there, and would like to see if anyone is interested. Thanks for any help... Brooks
Petrohawk was refered thru a friend as my land extends into Webster. The agent told me he had orders to go southwest from Webster. I was contacted out of the clear blue from Chesapeake today. Haven't had a chance to respond to them as of yet. It's getting better!!!!
I am in Bienville @Section 1-16N-10W. Today I was offered 17,000 an acre with 25% for a 5 year lease from Petrohawk. I also recieved a letter from Chesapeake today atating they wanted to discuss leasing my land. :)
The highest I have heard on signed bonus was 12,500 and 25% in NW Bienville( not Petrohawk). This is up from 4000 and 25 a couple of weeks ago. It's not far from Elm Grove to NW Bienville. Petrohawk has been the only major leasing and thats why it has stayed so low. Sit tight!!! the gas isn't going anywhere.
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
