Having recently investigated Bakken Exploration and applying the cease and desist order, you'd think they (ND Attorney General) would be even more pro-active to watch for other companies doing the same. There has to be similar patterns among the aggressive companies, which should raise red flags. If the Attorney Generals office, gave half an attempt to research other states this has happened in, from this company, they'd put a stop to it, or at least step on their toes some.
As fast as Blanca Peak Energy is moving with their leasing, they can breeze in and hit this state with a whole pile of non-paid lessors, before they realize they didn't get paid within the "lengthy" 60-120 business day Order For Payment. By years end, the ND Attorney Generals office will likely have seen enough complaints, to then begin the investigation. With Kevin already alerting them to their practices, I do hope they are quicker than years end to shut them down.
As fast as their recording numbers increase, by September, they'll possibly have 3000-5000 recordings. It will be interesting to watch just how many ratifications will be needed with this company. That in itself, should alert the Attorney General.
