Austin, Texas (PRWEB) April 19, 2012
As the values of Oil and Natural Gas continue to move in opposite directions, Caddo Minerals has followed in step, shifting it's focus to some of the "oilier" domestic shale plays. Fields like the Eagle Ford Shale, Utica Shale, Brown Dense, Mississippian (Mississippi Lime) represent some of the most exciting opportunities for unconventional Oil and Gas production to date. Companies like Chesapeake, Anadarko, Southwestern, Devon and EOG are making significant investments to control sizable acreage positions and immense reserves in each of these plays.
Caddo continues to offer landowners in Texas, Louisiana, Arkansas, Oklahoma, Ohio and other states across the lower-48 the option of selling all or part of their mineral rights or royalty ownership.
“It’s simply a matter of diversification and use. If you’re a landowner who has their entire net worth and future riding on the royalty payments from producing minerals, you should strongly consider selling a portion of your interest. If you have immediate needs or better uses for cash, it could make sense to sell your minerals. These plays can dry up almost as soon as they start. We have seen the same thing happen in the Haynesville, and it is best to catch it on the upswing,” says Caddo Minerals President, Bill Fowler.
Lease bonuses reached almost $25,000 per acre in Louisiana's Haynesville Shale in 2008 when natural gas spiked. Today, leases are going for less than $1,000 per acre.
While Caddo is an aggressive buyer, they believe landowner education is an important part in the sales process. By asking the right questions and giving landowners expectations about what their minerals or royalty could produce for them in the future, landowners are able to make informed, intelligent decisions for them and their family.
“Selling Mineral Rights or Royalty can make a lot of sense for some people. For others, it might make sense to hold on to what they have. Our goal is to help you make the best decision for your future,” says Fowler.
