I have land/minerals on Sykora Road in Fayette County.  Does anybody know of lease activity in this area?   Thanks.

The good news is that leasing is happening again!!  Lots of factors to consider when evaluating the bonus, but I contacted landman/brokers in the area just a few weeks ago, and no leasing, but told if oil prices stabilize, leasing may start, so my curiosity is peeked and thank you all for the information!

Rock Man:

You are totally correct.  Plus I haven't heard royalty percentage even mentioned as well as a bunch of other extremely important lease elements.  This is no secret; but, I would like to add one additional point.  Whatever the bonus is, it is nothing compared to a decent mineral friendly lease and right now they know they are in the drivers seat.

For what it is worth - I am sure that various brokers are monitoring these sites. If you don't want your conversations to be public and seen by everyone, you may want to "friend" individuals and talk in private

What are the companies?

Comment by Ladyonhill on July 14, 2016 at 6:33pm
Just FYI... Been contacted by 2 companies with lease offers of $200 & $400...
Comment by Ladyonhill on July 13, 2016 at 6:24pm
I haven't returned their phone call/email yet. I was surprised by that their contact & wanted to check out what other people were doing!

What was offer & what did you end up with?
Comment by 709 on July 13, 2016 at 4:45pm

I've also been recently contacted by a land man representing Geo Southern. the offer that they made was what I considered to be a low ball and the contract is pretty standard and in favor of the lessee.  I was able to get the bonus and kicker amounts up a little.

I've been contacted by a land man from Geo Southern to lease property outside of La Grange off 609. Anyone know about this new interest in leasing?

Comment by Wade Caldwell on February 6, 2015 at 6:56am
It is really important to negotiate a term on the easement so you have the opportunity to get renewals or get the thing removed at some point. Also, you want to provide for surface damages when they go ind have to repair it. Just a couple of points among many.
I have seen alot of companies accept an addendum which overrides many of the overbroad parts of the form easement they present. Also, I have not seen right of way agents, generally, be as aggressive as landmen in pushing back on contract changes.
