More Southern Iraq Oil is Starting to Hit the Markets

For the last 10 years, the oil industry in Iraq has been under intense pressure from jihadist insurgents and many leading oil producers were force to pull out of the region because of fears of safety for their workers, and the locals that lived in the areas according to Energy in Asia.

However, things have begun to change in the South of Iraq, especially in the oil-rich fields of North Rumaila which,…

The good times are likely to continue well into 2015 for consumers at the gas pumps, with some experts now forecasting New Mexico’s average price per gallon of unleaded to slide to $1.55 by March, before it starts to rebound in the spring.

Consumers can generally thank Saudi Arabia for the latest predictions, said Daniel Fine, associate director of the New Mexico Institute for Mining and Technology’s Center for Energy Policy. That…

undue influence

Sherri , After reading your post I would advise you to look into (with an attorney ) the legal term "undue influence" - it is usually applied to wills , probate , trusts , etc. - What it means is that someone has had an unfair influence over your mother because they have influenced her - capitalizing on her fears of being poor and handicapped - and even of dying and maybe not going to heaven etc. - easy for a pastor or caretaker to do because the person depends on them so much, or fears that…

Too Much Clay? Chill Out. Why Cryogenic Fracturing May Be the Answer


Almost without exception, today’s shale wells are stimulated using water-based fracturing fluids (slickwater).  This technique is popular due to its ability to transport proppant effectively at a relatively inexpensive cost.  However, it is a magnet for criticism from environmentalists, who are concerned about the incredible volume of water needed as well as the resulting contaminated wastewater which must be treated and disposed of properly.   Water use is often cited as one of the…

Rice Energy Lease Bonus Payments

Hi - Received an offer from Rice Energy which shows 1/2 bonus paid in 75 days and balance paid one-year from signing. Does anyone know if Rice Energy is normally agreeable to other bonus payment schedules that would better benefit the landowner (like maybe 1/2 in 75 days + 1/2 in 3 months)? Am worried they would not pay the second installment when it comes due. Any advice on this is welcomed!

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
