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.

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.

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?

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

If you shake hands with Diamond Resources, in my opinion you should count your fingers afterwards. I say this from 7 years acquaintance. If Diamond Resources should contact you? Retain a lawyers services immediately!

My overall experience with Diamond Resources is that a lot become title problems shortly after successful drilling and that the royalies stop. I refuse to talk to them anymore.

AD, Did you sign with HRC or someone else? Where in Burke are these acres? Mine are in the eastern Dimond (I think) - about 160 net acres. I've been told that the package is coming so I haven't had a chance to read the lease yet.

Comment by AD on March 8, 2017 at 7:59pm
We just signed in Burke at 1/5 on 180 net acres , 5 year term with 3 year extension option, at $500/acre. This offer came in two weeks ago and we negotiated up on first offer.

Here is a question.  Some leases in ND are signed at a 1/6 royalty interest rate, some 3/16ths, rarely 20%.  Is it correct that in Texas 20-25% is the norm?  Why are the royalty interest rates offered lower in North Dakota?  Why did I read that if you have too high an interest rate there would be more deductions?

Shale Oil made front page news in my local newspaper- that business is picking up again.   And thank-you Dianne Arnold for giving some info about HRC/Halcon offers.
