It's a guitar with mosaic stones glued on it. You can make one pretty easy.

Thanks. I do have a couple of questions I would like to ask them about lease terms. Sounds like they will listen.

John S, My family has just dealt with Echo on minerals about to be pooled and we have been very pleased. Matthew did everything he said he would. They paid a premium bonus and agreed to all our lease terms. So far, all is good and we would definitely sign with them in the future. We did have the benefit of having some close associates of a family member have a positive experience with Echo. Good luck.

Has anyone dealt with Echo Energy? We have an attractive lease offer from them. I understand that they are folks who left Chesapeake, but can't find much about them on the internet.

Martha and Hutch, I thought I sent a big thank you for your comments but I guess I hit the wrong send. So consider this a belated thanks. We wish we had known about this site when helping our Mom in 2010 with leasing decisions. Newfield sort of got the best of us but it could have been worse.

Those of you who are in leasing positions Please pay attention to what Rick, Hutch, Martha and Linda are telling you. They have great experiences.
There is a simple truth. Anyone who wants to purchase your minerals wants to at least double their cash flow.

Thanks RW!

If you want to research your "pre-lease" it's commonly known as a Top Lease. I am usually not in favor of top leasing for many of the same reasons I don't like unpaid options in a lease agreement. If someone wants to top themselves in a top lease, I would say , why don't we just jump to a new lease agreement, a novation. The reason a company would want to top themselves is in hopes that a well is drilled during the period of the first lease so that they never need pay you the remainder of the top lease bonus. They want insurance and they want you to sell them the insurance at a discount. They also get the advantage of your minerals not hitting the open market again where the market and competition sets the price. Good luck.

By the way, I will send you a friend request and we can talk further this if you like. There are other factors (clauses) you will want to know about before you lease.
