Lender's request for future royalties

Bank is requesting a letter from some of the operators that production will continue over the next 3 yrs. Interested in how some of the brilliant minds would approach that. I'm also interested in what volumes of Nat gas would constitute commercial production on Caney Woodford wells in Southern Oklahoma.

Sounds like fuzzy thinking on the part of the bank or an impossible to obtain commitment to produce for the next 3 years because if it isn't a commitment, then does it really mean anything?

No, RWJ, but I think I will be able to put their concerns to rest. I think they will be reasonable in spite of the request.

Ms. Wilbanks, I hope the bank will be reasonable. If my bank had been more reasonable I would be a working interest in 5 more good wells.
