Holbrooke storage field

Signed a lease with a company in November of last year. We are the mineral/royalty owners. We were told that the landowners get the signing bonus and we get only royalties. The last thing we were told is that there is no time frame when we would get our royalties and that drilling is being held up by the Holbrooke storage field. They obviously knew this before they had us sign a lease because there has been litigation over the storage field since 2012. Anyone know what gives? We are ready to… Continue

Shake and Bake: the advent of the resting period

Chesapeake released some quite interesting news during their first quarter 2012 conference call.  Apparently they discovered, entirely by accident, another factor impacting production numbers on their OH Utica completions.  When the Buell Well was drilled in Harrison County, a minor problem prohibited them from immediately completing it.  The unintended resting period allowed much of the water and frack fluid to dissipate prior to completion.  Their Carroll County wells, drilled…

Chesapeake's French Connection May be Coming to an End



On November 4, 2011, Chesapeake announced a joint venture agreement whereby they agreed to sell part of its holdings in the Utica Shale for $2.3 B.  The announcement claimed that CHK would get $649 M from an undisclosed buyer in exchange for a 25% interest in 650,000 acres in Ohio's wet gas and volatile oil window.  It's partner, Enervest, would receive $90 M in cash.  Further, the buyer, now disclosed as France's TOTAL SA, agreed to pony up $1.5 B toward Chesapeake's drilling…

E&P Companies Like Ohio for More than Just Geological Reasons

Drillers like Ohio for more than just geological reasons. Ohio is ideally located to take advantage of development and commercial networks in both the Midwest and on a national scale. Ohio is within 600 miles of 60% of the US population and more than half of the Canadian population. It has considerable existing infrastructure and one of the most favorable tax/business climates in America. Ohio has zero tax on inventory or corporate income, no tax on investments for inventory or equipment, no…
