Noble Energy Cuts Stock Divdends

According to Marcellus Drilling News, Noble Energy - a major player in the Marcellus/Utica, has announced plans to cut dividend payments for its common stock by 44%.

Lawyer Retainers & Agreement Contracts

     Here’s what you need to look for when signing a lawyers contract. I’ve seen a few of these including the TV Lawyers contracts that advertise “You Don’t Pay If We Don’t Win”.

A lawyers’ contract should be short and concise since lawyers write contracts as part of their daily work and they have been trained in the art of writing contracts. There should be no need to interpret what they have written.

When looking for a lawyer take a copy of their contract home and read it…

Jim Litwinowicz replied to Mike Murphy's discussion 'Rex Planning 6 well pads'
"All depends on how the lease is written. Some say something like "Work has begun" or "Upon commencement of drilling operations" which means even sticking survey sticks in ground or brush hogging in a path counts as HBP"

"Well, it depends heavily on what the terms of the lease are - some require drilling, some production, and some allow the lease to be extended when unspecified 'activities' occur."
