Would be interested to know y'all thoughts/opinions on what "they" would be looking for in the Miller County (AR) area...Cass County, NW LA & most of the ARK/LA stateline to the east of Miller County are all very active but it seems each area has a different target.
Happy to...thanks Tom--
JAG (2011) & Stroud (2010) are companies that have contacted my family for minerals we own in S5T20SR27W the old Kelly Bayou Field. Stroud initially wanted 8-10,000 depth only & NO HAYNESVILLE SHALE. Then when the lease arrived they "forgot" and included all depths as well as a Haynesville Sand/Shale clause. JAG wants all depths in Section 5.
I spoke to a Miller Co landowner that has been leased from Stephens Land for a company called Enduro. I follow N. Caddo Parish, Cass County, Arkansas as well as LSBD sites. I see quite a variety of zones being followed/drilled/discussed in these sites. N. Caddo Parish & Cass County have picked up of late and, of course, along the state line east of Miller Co. has been active for some time. Miller Co. seems to be surrounded by a lot of activity. Some of the discussions I've read felt strongly that the Brown Dense was not in Miller County. So...what are they looking for? My family has a large amount of minerals in southern Miller Co. The offers have not been very good...in my opinion-- and I am trying to weigh ...lease or wait. I wish I had more info to share. Any thoughts or comments would be welcome.
Tom, thanks for the reply. It all makes for some interesting and exciting times...I grew up in Miller County with the hum & pop of the pump jack on the hill "rocking" me to sleep EVERY night...a well that was drilled in the 1930's and when I checked production in 1985 it was still producing 50 bbl/month. Yes, fun times ahead. Thanks again.
thanks Tom for this insight. The family is sitting on wait.
Tom, what leads you to believe they may be looking for LSBD? Do you have direct knowledge of what oil/gas companies will and won't pay? Would love to know your source so that I might deal with companies accordingly. Why do you expect to see continued activity in Miller, Cass and north Caddo? Who or what is your source? Any info you can provide as far as specifics is appreciated as it will help in dealing with situations as they arise.
Thanks for the response. You say "information gathered" which is rather vague. What gathered information leads you to believe the LSBD is as far west as Cass? If memory serves, the maps I have seen (maybe Southwestern) didn't show it as far west as Cass. So your gathered info is most encouraging. Just wanting more than your vague reference.
Tom, I found the Southwestern map I saw a while back and I believe it is showing their areas of interest only. What I am looking for is a report from a state or a federal geology agency, energy company report etc. When you mentioned information gathered, I mistakenly thought you might have a report or link to a report to back up your statement that LSBD might be as far west as Cass. Since this seems to be nothing more than your opinion, I will look elsewhere.
