There are a lot more on there since this last post. Chesapeake is rumored to be buying out several of the companies that have been leasing and operating in the County.
Bonus money offers are now starting at $600 a Net acre now and 1/4 royalty. Make sure your lease addendum's are good.
There are several companies that are still try to pay $300 per acre (Burke Royalty).
They are beginning to pay more and give better terms. If you have some minerals west of Lovelady you can get a lot more. Brokers and Landmen have to know you have them first. Navidad and Burke are Partners and they pay the least and have the worst lease addendum's.
