Are there other companies leasing in WF Parish I could contact?
EnCana (and any other energy company that operates, meaning drills wells) wants every square foot under lease in a unit that they can get at terms they consider reasonable. They don't wish to Force Pool the little guy and not get the benefit of his proportional production. Force Pooling is often misunderstood by mineral owners. It's prime purpose is to force parties with development rights (leases) to cooperate to produce the minerals. That's why Working Interests are charged risk penalties and unleased mineral interests (UMI) are not. LA mineral codes protect the UMI to a much greater extent than other states.
If you can get lease terms you find acceptable from Trinity, you can enter into a lease with them. However it is best where possible to be leased to the operator as that usually results in a better royalty percentage. Keep in mind that all operators must abide by the terms of your lease even it is not their lease. When your minerals are included in a unit and the unit operator has spud a well is an excellent time to negotiate a lease.
The Lake Rosemound Field unit(DeLee property well) is directly above this new unit. They named this new field Bayou Sara Field. This well will be on what locals call Mulberry Hill - Spillman land in part. The 2 units touch each other on their North/South borders. There will be another unit, yet unannounced, due east on the John Willis property.
Yes there are.
Though Trinity did offer me a lease, which I have not taken, I do not know if they represent anyone else.
Mac, respond to my friend request and I will give you my 2 cents worth of advice regarding my contact with Trinity and others and Island Road.
There is no minimum number of acres under lease required to apply for a drilling & production unit with the State of Louisiana. The EnCana rep doesn't know what he's talking about or he is purposely feeding you disinformation.
