Adherence to gas leases

We own a tract of land that has had a gas lease since the middle 70's.  It was renewed and had a Coal Bed Methane Lease added to the original along with modifications to the original gas lease in 2008.  We conducted an audit in 2014 that actually did not start until 2015.   Much to our surprise we found the lease had been totally mismanaged, and the terms of the lease were not being followed.  Things such as royalties were being paid to the wrong person,  Deductions were being taken that…

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%. In addition, they will also be lowering their 2016 Capex by 50%, meaning less drilling and completion activity will take place in 2016 than we saw in 2015.  

This move, however, is not unique to Noble Energy. Over the last several weeks we have seen many operators such as Chesapeake and Rex Energy suspending stock…

Weak gas infrastructure fueling Utica's struggles

"So, when drillers elsewhere were getting maybe $2.75 per mcf for their gas, in Ohio: “On July 4, I saw Utica gas sell for 64 cents,” said Ohio Oil and Gas Association executive vice president Shawn Bennett in a recent interview.

To be fair, that’s a strikingly painful price, even for the Utica. But that same day in mid-July, Bennett looked up the price of Utica gas while the Henry Hub price was $2.80, and found that Ohio drillers were only getting about $1.12 for their gas. That’s…
