For the complete article in the Farmington Daily Times use this link-->http://www.daily-times.com/farmington-opinion/ci_26938726/column-sa...The shale oil boom which returns 25 percent of the New Mexico State revenue is under "bust" threat from Saudi Arabia.The current price decline in both midland Texas light sweet crude and brent (world price) will begin to defer future projects if prices fall to $72 a barrel and below. An estimated 80 percent of production and projected production in the next five years requires price stability higher than $ 75 per barrel. Saudi Arabia is combining market share strategy with a world oversupply of crude oil.Oil producers in New Mexico are partially protected through cash flow hedges, which are crude barrels sold forward with prices established in futures (must be higher than present prices). However,…Continue

Column: The resource war and San Juan Basin oil By Dr. Daniel Fine Special to The Daily Times

For the complete article use this link--> http://www.daily-times.com/election2014/ci_27283196/column-resource-war-and-san-juan-basin-oil Resource War and San Juan Basin oil Oil and gas companies in the Southwest, the Rocky Mountains and the Dakotas are revising or recalibrating their capital budgets for 2015 as the price per barrel of west Texas intermediate crude trades in the $50 range. Most companies are moving into a cycle downturn phase in defense against a world price decline mostly aimed at unconventional production (shale or light tight oil). The question is how much cost savings coupled with production declines is ahead? And how long will the Saudi Aramco market share impact last?It is now clear that the San Juan Basin and the Four Corners will be significantly impacted. A loss of two and possible three rigs will contract the general economy. Job…Continue

I was told that Three Span O & G was drilling north of Lorraine near 458 and west of 644.  I was told they were drilling deeper than the Cline Shale into the Strawn Sand I believe.  Does anyone know anything about this, when they started, how far along they are, if what I was told is accurate, etc...?  Thanks!

Craig my lease is at the south end of lot 180 blk 29 w&nw rr. most is end glasscock and crosses into sterling county. I'm not trying to pin you down (put you on the spot) just your opinion of that amount being close at this time. reasonable.

Comment by Craig Wascom on June 19, 2014 at 9:47am

I would say 3000 is a healthy bonus but I'm no expert and things are changing very fast. As soon as I say that is a good offer someone will get a better one. Glad to see you are getting professional help, at some point you are going to have to trust the pros and bite the bullet. Problem is no one knows where that point is.

Where is your area/county?


Comment by Ralph Fuquay on June 19, 2014 at 9:31am

Craig  a lawyer/landman told me the going rate in cline shale area I should ask for is 3000 per acre signing bonus. ( in area of my lease). I would appreciate your opinion on this.

Comment by Ralph Fuquay on June 18, 2014 at 1:48pm

sounds good!

Comment by Craig Wascom on June 18, 2014 at 10:22am

We will see in time the eastward movement is beginning to pick up steam. The story changes from one quarter to the next. Remember 6 months ago there were some on this site ready to give the play last rights. What I am seeing and hearing in the field is there are HUGE results about to be announced. The next month should be very interesting.

Comment by Ralph Fuquay on June 18, 2014 at 10:10am

the landman that called me with a low offer, says my area is not to good, but we want you signed up asap, this is probably typical they do this for a living. I believe positive with new technology and cline discovery. this is the best opportunity for oil wells.

Comment by Ralph Fuquay on June 18, 2014 at 10:00am

it opens more opportunities for everyone involved. it's good news for mineral owners.

Comment by Craig Wascom on June 18, 2014 at 7:19am

Some are saying that this could end up being like the Gulf with much more being found deeper. Pretty far fetched in my opinion but we did not expect what we have now.
