I am seeking information about activity and what is going on in Beauregard Parish. My land was surveyed

by Seismic Exchange, as many others, huge block . I think Cypress Creek Project. Very big block like

350 miles from Sabine Border through to DeRidder. This was in late 2010, and wasn't finished until late July of

2011. It has been since late 2012, that this info was available to the oil companies, etc. Is there any

way that the landowner can find out the determination of this 3 D project on their land?

I would be greatful for any information.

Near Juanita in Beauregard Parish, T5S-R10W.

Thanks!

  18-5S-10W, and the land around me was bought, not leased,

by Sabine Uplift Mineral Corp. This is around 809 acres, and was previously owned

by Boise Cascade for many years. I understand that Sabine Uplift Mineral Corp. bought

all of Boise's land. I don't know if that 809 acres was all or not. Do you know anything

about Sabine Uplift Mineral Corp.?

Thanks Jay, as you can see, I need some education on leasing. Have

any suggestions on where I should start? Incidentally, someone is

approaching me about a "Hunting Lease" on my land. If I leased my land for Hunting,

would this be a problem if  an oil and mineral lease opportunity presented

itself?

Thanks so much Jay

Jay's response is both funny and on-point. The more important thing to consider is making sure that your hunter can't complain if there are mineral operations, not the other way around.

As far as what you should do about your minerals, I would advise you to continue to get as much general education as possible on leasing minerals, but otherwise wait to be contacted by an interested party. Odds are poor that you would ever be able to find a company who happened to be interested in your area, and if you did find one they would probably think you were highly motivated and lowball your offer.

Let them come to you, and be ready when that phone call finally arrives.

Andrew,

That is not necessarily the case. We had somewhat of a problem with a seismic company that did not want anyone hunting in the area that they were setting up and shooting in. I guess they were concerned about their personnel being in the woods with hunters. They waited until deer season was over before they moved in to do their shoot. So there can be a concern about hunters in the area of operations.

Joe,

That's good to know. I've never heard of that being an issue, but I can see why the seismic company wouldn't want anyone around for them to somehow injure. That would all depend on what the seismic agreement says, if it is even still in force.

A number of years back, an issue with a so-called "dubious" hunting lease in the Haynesville did pop up on GHS.

There had been some chatter about the wording, implying that there could've been a fine-print clause (or some such wording) which had something to do with the mineral rights.

Too bad KB's not here.  Maybe she'd be able to clarify whatever happened in that specific case.

I always advise everyone to never sign anything in regards to their land until they've had their lawyer review the document, i.e., it doesn't hurt to be extra careful these days.

Of course, the odds are that this is a straightforward hunting lease.

  

Thanks for your post, Jay - where did you find the lease information?

Sabine Uplift is Ricky  Evans.Ricky and his brother Sonny are major landowners in the  Haynesville Shale. For the  past few years he has been buying a good bit of Boise property. He told me once that he tries to find tracts that are not contiguous to other large Boise tracts in hopes of one day maybe getting the minerals. Ricky and Sonny raise timber.

Someone should tell 'em that Sonny story from WWII.

Jay,

What about 6S-11W-25 ?

Thanks.
