Further to my last comment, Petro Harvester has 3 active producing wells nearby on sections 17, 19 & 23.  These were drilled in 2010 and 2012.  I don't know how much these are producing, but maybe Mr. Kennedy knows.

Mr. Anderson:

I just received an offer for a few acres in Section 16 on the same terms.  The bonus offered is double what they offered in late November, 2017 and they finally deleted the warranty of titke clause which should never have been in the lease anyway.  I think they also made a third offer back in April, 2017, but I never picked that up from the PO as the property was not yet in my name.

In any event, I stopped leasing to Diamond many years ago.  At this point, I'd rather see if some other company makes a better offer or take my chances going non-consent.

Just received a lease offer from Continental Resources (via our "friends" at Diamond Resources). It's for a small interest in several parcels within Section 4, T162N, R94W. Offer is for $150/acre and 1/6 royalty. SEveral family members own similar small fractional pieces. While I recognize we don't have much bargaining strength, this seems like a low offer based on earlier deals we've had in the general area.  Any thoughts would be appreciated.

I read somewhere that if oil was at least $60 a barrel, then Burke County would be profitable for drilling again.  If this is true, what would be fair pricing for leasing minerals now?  Has anyone been contacted lately?  My minerals are in T159N R90W.   I'm not sure of the best way to advertise anymore, it's been a long time for prices to come back up.  Thanks for any information.

I own some working interest in Burke (T161N, R94W), interested in taking offers. Please send me a private message if you are interested in getting details.

Thank you!

I understand that Diamond/Continental may be interested in this area, but I would prefer to shop the lease to another company.

Mary Beth,

Acqyre is Liberty Resources, Denver.

Comment by Mary Beth on March 17, 2017 at 1:50pm

So leases are being filed for all around my mineral interests.  A lot are from Diamond Resources who has now transferred the leases to Spear Energy, LLC in Bottineau, ND.  Has anyone heard of Spear Energy??  Oil company, investor?  Google search only comes up with a solar energy company with a name close to that.   I did not lease with them. Looks like many were signed for 15% or 16.67%. for 5 years.    HRC has a bunch of leases in the same areas, but I don't know their lease particulars. 

Comment by Mary Beth on March 10, 2017 at 11:07am

Hi AD,  I'm wondering who Acqyre is representing?   Are they an oil company or an investment company? 

I was trying to figure out the areas that are being leased and I think they are mainly the Cottonwood area- over and into the Noble area.  I saw that 160N94W is the North Tioga area, right? 

Comment by AD on March 9, 2017 at 10:42am

We signed with Acqyre. As to the location we are 160N Range 94.
