Thanks Richard.

Michael Joslyn, The Hatchett 1H-33XR is now the Hatchett 1H-4. Sec. 33 was not drilled per letter I received from Newfield lawyers. The 1H-4 had first production in June 2015.

Does anyone know the status of Davenport Ranch 1-31H  that Marathon is drilling in Section 31 T1N R6W? They started drilling in February and it seems like it should be close to completion.

Comment by Michael Joslyn 20 hours ago

I was looking for information on the Hatchett 1H-33XR.  There is no completion report yet.  There is a Hatchett 1H-4R on the Gross Production website showing as active but no production listed yet.  The OCC website does not have a listing for the 1H-4R.  I know they had a problem with the first Hatchett well and had to redo the well.  I am wondering if they had problems drilling into Garvin County section 33 and just went to section 4.  Has anyone heard anything on this?

M Barnes,

Thank you. I will keep plugging away at this. I think we have similar ownership I recognize the name Barnes as being one of surface owners in Sec 14 1S 5W.

Here is another link to some other information about Chesapeake; it is from late last year.

Suzanne - My understanding is that Peggy DO's are supposed to be out next month.
Comment by Suzanne Clark on Monday

Hello, new to the forum.  Still waiting for Marathon to send division orders for the Peggy 1-33H well in sec33-1N-5W.  Anyone in same boat as me?

The Chesapeake Lawsuits have come up a couple of times now and no one responds to the questions. There must be operators that have done the same thing and it hasn't caught up with them yet. Here is what I have found and I put links to the articles down below. It looks like in January 2015 Chesapeake was ordered to pay from 119 Million up to 1.2 Billion in settlements for unethical practices of doing wrong math to benefit their organization during the gas price crunch back in 2012. Apparently they couldn't stay afloat in the custom they were use to with out ripping off the royalty owners. That was in the Oklahoma newspapers. Here is the problem. No one has mentioned exactly where the royalties/properties are located in Oklahoma. It seems to be very controversial because of the former developer of Chesapeake is a very high profile individual in Oklahoma owning a sports team and such. No one wants to be accountable. I included some links below of some of the information I have found. One of the links is to Royalty Ripoff. I guess they are handling the royalty owners going after Chesapeake. I myself would like to skip the attorney and them keeping 2/3 of the money and proceed with my own documentation to Chesapeake. The oil companies pay out billions but most of goes to the attorneys and it show in the amount of money that actually gets paid to the royalty owner. I'm just merely stating the facts. Nothing against attorneys; that is just how they operate. I think that it is time for the royalty owners to quit getting manipulated because we think all organizations are socially responsible and looking out for the better of group and not just for themselves. Hopefully that trend will change in the near future forced by the hand of the law and the IRS.

If you find out anything please share.

K Dawn, you may have to work with an attorney or landman on that question.  You will probably have to go back to the unitization documents and see how deep they cover and whether they have depth restrictions on them.  Can find them on the OCC Imaged Documents area if you are lucky. Some units are specific to a certain set of horizons. Then you would be paid on the unit by one company and if you lease again deeper, paid by someone else or they might cut a deal with the original operators.  Some units cover all zones, so any subsequent drilling success would be paid by the operator of the original unit. (I hate those because I am usually stuck at 1/8th royalty from the 1920's and it is unfortunate.)  Units can constrict and get smaller over time, so you need to check on that as well.  You might get a brief answer by calling the OCC and asking them first before you hire someone to check it out for you. 

Or someone else on the forum may have a better answer.
