Current Issues on Rights of First Refusal - October 22nd, 2008
At summer camp I remember singing “Michael, Row the Boat Ashore,” in endless rounds as the orange glow of the crackling fire lit the night while we kids were safely seated so far away from the conflagration that we felt no heat and mostly spent the night swatting mosquitoes, shivering, and yearning for the torture to end. Amid these sweet memories I recall that a fireside buddy once asked me, “Where’s Michael rowing?” and I quickly answered, “Fer shore dummy, he’s rowin’ fer shore.” Years later, as a newbie evaluations engineer in the oil patch, I was asked if there were any “row fer’s” on some land. I was very confused. “Row ‘fer?” The first thing I thought of was Michael’s endless row fer shore to get to that milk and honey on the other side, or sometimes to meet someone’s mother.

The Little Land System ® - April 14th, 2008
Finding ways to cut costs and remain competitive are important challenges for small business owners, especially in the oil and gas industry. Managing land information efficiently is the key to capitalizing on business opportunities and is best done with specialized computer software. The price of most of the products on the market, however, is prohibitively high for junior explorers and producers. Because of this lack of viable software options, these small companies are forced to choose between trying to come up with the funds for these expensive programs in the hopes that they will “grow” into them, or trying to keep track of important land information using basic spreadsheets. In order to provide an affordable alternative for small companies, Tracey Stock and his associates Debbie Degenstein, Rory McGuire, and Moya Little have designed The Little Land System ®, a product of Enermatix Consulting Inc. This new system is now available, but will be formally launched on March 19, 2008, at a presentation being held at the Chamber of Commerce, and provides an exciting new alternative for small businesses that need to manage oil and gas land information.
