See my post of yesterday to Mercer County Comment Wall. Halcon's stock was down over 20% on Friday and closed at $2.27. If crude prices stay as low as they are for even 3-4 more months, I believe Halcon's survival is unlikely. Other small E&P companies also saw their share prices fall dramatically. See Yahoo Finance.

Bob Rock: Thanks for the link. It brings up the article out of West Vrginia referred to in my post below.

More Potential Good News: Yesterday I discovered an article from "The State Journal, West Virginia's only business newspaper". The article is by Suzanne Elliot and is dated November 20, 2014 as updated November 22, 2014. The content and the tone of article suggests that Shell may actually build the plant at the old Horsehead Site in Monaca in Beaver County. See my recent comment to Mercer County Comment Wall.Perhaps by now someone will have posted a link to the article.

Big News!! Go to Mercer County Comment Wall and read comments over last few days. Halcon seeking permits to build pipeline from Five Points area in Mercer County all the way into Venango county and ending not far from Allam Well. See post by Bob Rock to Mercer county comment Wall where permit application is attached and also Maps of the course proposed pipeline will follow in both Mercer and Venango counties.

The only thing going on in this area that I know of is Range Resources is going to be doing some work on the pipeline that runs through my moms farm. The landmen told me the wells drilled in this area are very good and they are possibly going to start leasing again. Fwiw

James: Have you heard whether or when Hilcorp may drill the 2 parcels that they have permitted near you or your folks property? , I am speculating, (and it is only speculation) that we may not see much going on in our area until 2016, and possibly not until 2017 or even 2018. I have no real facts to back up any of this. Frankly, I hope my guesses are way off and that you and I and a bunch of other people in our area get leased in 2015 and that we get leases with at least decent, if not spectacular, bonus money.

Company wiener roast. They needed long hotdog sticks to avoid the hot flame.
