We have had some 5 public forums here in Fergus county in the past few months. It is all about the Heath formation and then some natural gas in the north part of the county so far. The oil companies have been buying property in town (Lewistown) and making other preparations. I will make some inquiries but because of the state of development and drilling, it is probably early to get the really good offers.
I agree with Will. Due to the early stages of the exploration the offers will be low. There are 6 oil companies exploring the Heath formation and 2 of them are looking at drilling this year, the others I am unsure as the information provided is sparse. One is focusing on Petroleum county, another on Judith Basin.
