Dealing With Blackbeard Operating, LLC

Has anyone had any recent dealings with Blackbeard? They recently (Jan 2020) took over production from 3 companies in Hemphill Cty, including Tecolote. Their operations acct didn’t answer my original questions so I wrote again. She apparently didn’t know the difference between a 1099 and a W9. Often a royalty owner is sent a new W9 when the payor is changing and/or the owner number has changed as well. Finally got an answer. Be careful with Blackbeard’s operations with royalty owners.
