"I was in no way trying to belittle anyone or their career choice. I was merely commenting on the idea of an "entry level" job being a career. If a person wants to provide for a family in the fast food business, or any business,…"
"From the perspective of mineral owners mistaking investment for success, then I completely agree. Here in the F'ville, when it first got started, all of south east Arkansas was trying to decide how may different colors they should…"
"I sure don't have a professional sounding answer, but I do know that $2.35 looks a lot better than $1.85. That being said, I have lost faith in all of the "shale depletion lower rig count colder forecast fixen' to export bound…"
"Don't know anything about the guy. You reckon it was a case of arrogance leading to a "can't fail" belief, or was it just the typical gambling wildcatter, albeit it with a much bigger budget?
Seems a stretch to take on a…"
"Well, we have a clearer picture on what the future holds for us here, pretty much nothing. The WV purchase may have been good from a long term perspective, but I'm afraid your comment about taking on the debt at this time may be true."
"That's a good observation. And your right, you would have to have a separate line for fresh and re-use. Also, it would seem that poly is the way to go, since it can be reused. I would also think the truck count would be much…"
"I obviously oversimplified it -
Basically, you don't want/can't really have 200 produced water trucks show up at the frac site each day and you don't really want to pipe it through 10" steel or aluminum irrigation pipe. So…"
"The Moorefield is a good thing, for sure. The Arkansas Oil and Gas Commission permit list had several Moorefield wells listed a couple of weeks ago. All we have to do now is hope conditions allow the few rigs running now to keep…"
"I've always been kind of skeptical of the "sayers of 'nay'" that have been around nipping at the heels of shale producers. Their has certainly been some to go belly up, and will be more as "lower for longer"…"
"That's an interesting look on things, Skip. Although the prices I'm sure have depressed the outlook in the HS, to get some of the acreage in the hands of companies that are nimble enough to work it in this environment is a good…"
"maybe it's all phsycoll, er. phsicellog, er, maybe it's all in my head, but I'm glad to hear were getting closer to export. I don't believe that exports are going to be the "knight in shining armor" for nat…"
Hello! I hope the site is a place for you to learn, network and contribute. My name is Keith and I started the site in June of 2008 to open up lines of communication between landowners. Since then, we have grown to over 13,000 members.
Because our network has grown word-of-mouth, I want to encourage you to invite your friends and family by clicking here.
There are a couple things you should check out. 1) Check out current discussions. 2) Join in on the County and Parish Groups. By joining a County or Parish, you are networking locally with people who share similar concerns.
Be sure to read up on how to navigate the site HERE. This will help you get the most out of the site.
As a member, should you ever be on the recieving end of crudeness, rudeness or spam, let me know. The site is a peered monitored site and we need your assistance.
