Just a warning. I have owned minerals for 30 years in Stephens County and have leased them many times. I leased Echo Energy out of Oklahoma City about 2 plus years ago offsetting a proposed well in 3 South-4 West Section 4. I own minerals in section 5. That went smooth. Back in October 2016 they approached me with a full paid up top lease with all the funds up front. Since the previous transaction went well I sent them a signed notrized lease with their promise of prompt payment. Well, they never paid and even placed the signed lease of record the day they received it. I spent nearly two months trying to get my original lease back and a release of oil and gas lease. They were bad returning calls and I even had to talk to senior in house people to finally get my lease back.This was the first time I have ever not sent the lease and draft in for collection. My fault. Lesson learned. Beware that these companies may be trying to sell your lease and then pay you. The day of gentleman hand shake deals are gone. There is a new bunch in the oil patch.
