I had Pinebelt call and ask to lease mineral rights on about 140 acres. When I asked them who was the company behind this project they stated that they didn’t have that information. I find that statement a little hard to believe since someone is paying for their services in obtaining these leases for them. Does anyone know who it is? They are putting together 640 acre plots.
I have dealt with the same situation in North Dakota and I decided that it really doesn't matter who the broker is for as long as the bonus/acre, % royalty and lease terms met with my approval. You can always shop around for another offer if you feel the broker's is too low.
