We have 160 acres in Beckham CO, spanning two sections in T9N R22W. We signed a lowball lease in OCT 2014 for 80 acres, a hole was drilled in March 2015 and we were told it looked like a viable hole and they were moving forward to complete. A month and a half ago when checking in with the land man we were told that the exploration company had tried two attempts to complete and said both were to tight. During that discussion we told that they would make a third attempt with in the next two weeks. Also during the discussion the land man mentioned that they were interested in leasing the remaining 80 acres at the same very low ball lease. We've not received and lease offers yet and upon speaking with the land man last week he said that the exploration company has asked him to not divulge any more information with the mineral holders, leaving us to feel left in the dark. I'm just guessing but my thoughts are that they don't want a competitor to swoop in on their find and get the other adjasent 80 acres. Has anyone experienced this? Any knowledge or experiences would be appreciated.
