Chevron filed with the DEP to make the Bowser pad "inactive". They did the same after drilling the Jefferson McCullough well.

I'll take a look and report back as soon as their viewable JohnL.

Several more Hilcorp to Chevron deed recordings today.

JR- isn't Hilcorp part owner with NiSource of Pennant Midstream? I hope they don't end up like Chesapeake and over charge landowners for gas transportation. I guess this means they plan on sticking around.

The 122 page recording between Hilcorp and Pennant etal. is a memorandum of agreement that covers transportation of gas, oil, etc. from most all of Hilcorp's leases.  110+ pages of the thing are just the lists of all of Hilcorp's leases in Mercer County, although the agreement itself covers Hilcorp leases in Columbiana, Trumbull, Mahoning, Mercer, Lawrence and Beaver counties(the "Dedicated Area".)  In other words, Pennant will be transporting the gas/oil products from Hilcorps wells in these counties.  I believe that's the gist of it.

Sam, you win some, you lose some, Floyd Wilon got lucky once before selling another gas/oil company for big profits, he isn't as smart as he wants shareholders and landowners to think, I personally think he had no clue what he was doing and spent 100s of millions of dollars foolishly because he was greedy and didn't want other gas/oil companies to get land leased before he could. It's easy to spend someone else's money and throw it away like he did, I hope he never starts another company and screws so many people again. I still never understood the last big money he spent leasing all the property around the Alam well spending millions more and then walking away, unfortunately I wasn't able to get any of that free money, they leased everything right up to my property. Oh well, like I said, you win some, you lose some.

JR- I've never seen it take this long to compete a deed recording. Looks like it involves every Mercer County Hilcorp lease.

Sam - I had a similar situation like yours years ago. I made the gamble and it paid off big, but then again it wasn't Halcon. They'll be bankrupt in the coming months.

Comment by Samuel J. Orr on September 30, 2015 at 10:32pm

Just to make some of you folks feel better, I still have my 1500 shares of Halcon whech I purchased in 2012   for $7.42 per share because I knew Floyd Wilson was a genius. Halcon closed today at $0.53 / share! That's what I said, it closed at 53 cents per share. Maybe I should blow another $11,000 dollars and really get greedy. Instead of just 1500 shares, I could buy about 20,000 shares. Do I have the guts to do that? I don't think so!

JohnL, As soon as it's completed, I'll post a synopsis.
