Rene I missed the 2nd part of your question before. The bad news is that you can expect a well to be down to 35% of it's first 12 months production in 5 years. The good news is the "experts" expect a well to level off and hold 20-35% of initial production for "decades". They say that a well may require additional fracks to maintain, but that the gas is there. Seems to be only a question of what measures will need to be taken to keep the well at a decent production rate.

This one seems to work pretty well:

it's for gas

William.  Is the royalty formula below the same for natural gas or is this for Oil only?

How much is the decline typically after 2 years?

You can get a fair idea by taking your net acres included in a pooled unit, multiply that by your royalty percentage, multiply that by 100 and finally multiply that by $500. This will give you a pretty good idea of the income you will receive for each of the first 2 years for every well in the unit. Expect that figure to decline after a couple years.

what good is the calculator if the gas companies are ripping you off anyway?

Not seeing the calculator at all right now.

where is the calculate button??????????????????

Comment by NYPAShale on March 17, 2014 at 12:34am

What is the correct way to use the "No decline rate? Click "calculate" to view daily production" page? I'm assuming that you choose the percentage of the wells decline each year, and that it drops off more quickly in the early years. But, is there an accepted level of decline for each year? I realize that this is al estimating and that no two wells are alike, but I'd just like to make sure I'm doing things correctly. Thanks.

the price (futures) is in the header next to the logo...

If I go to I can get the calculator, but not the price. On all I get is a blue NEXT button.

What am I doing wrong? Or am I that blind?


Comment by Keith Mauck (Site Publisher) on November 3, 2012 at 12:19pm
It's still there...
Comment by Sherre Boyanowski on November 2, 2012 at 12:29pm

You took away the price of gas and oil at the top of the page. How can we calculate our royalties?  Calculator didn't appear either.
