to lease or to buy?
Better grab that money because when they get bought out those offers won't come back around anytime soon.
I agree. When they make an offer accept it or negotiate, but don't wait for something better because there is a fair amount of lease land available. Unless you have inside info about the company's need.
could get that much in just the first year of royalty if drilled.
I'd call Pikewood Energy in Morgantown. I hear they have paid nearly $7,600/acre for 18% royalties with no fees and closings in under 20 days.
Depends on what you're looking to achieve, though.
