Black Hills completes acquisition of Mallon Resources Corp.

By OGJ editors

HOUSTON, Mar. 12 -- Black Hills Corp., Rapid City, SD, completed the $53 million acquisition of Mallon Resources Corp., Denver, saying it will soon launch a drilling and workover program and expects to recover more gas from Mallon's leasehold in northwestern New Mexico.

Mallon had 53.3 bcf of reserves as of yearend 2001 on Jicarilla Apache Nation lands, mostly gas in shallow sands (OGJ Online, Oct. 21, 2002). The 56,000 net acres are mostly on a contiguous block in early development stages.

Black Hills believes the shallow sands could yield additional reserves and that gas could be recoverable from deeper unexplored horizons that produce elsewhere in the San Juan basin.

The properties produce 12 Mmcfed, and Mallon operated 152 of the 174 gas and oil wells with 90-100% average working interests.

Global LNG: Adjusting to New Realities

Fri, Mar 20, 2015

Oil & Gas Journal’s March 20, 2015, webcast will look at how global LNG trade will be affected over the next 12-24 months by falling crude oil prices and changing patterns and pressures of demand. Will US LNG production play a role in balancing markets? Or will it add to a growing global oversupply of LNG for markets remote from easier natural gas supply? Will new buyers with marginal credit, smaller requirements, or great need for flexibility begin to look attractive to suppliers? How will high-cost, mega-projects in Australia respond to new construction cost trends?

US Midstream at a Crossroads

Fri, Mar 6, 2015

Oil & Gas Journal’s Mar. 6, 2015, webcast will focus on US midstream companies at an inflection point in their development in response to more than 6 years shale oil and gas production growth. Major infrastructure—gas plants, gathering systems, and takeaway pipelines—have been built. Major fractionation hubs have expanded. Given the radically changed pricing environment since mid-2014, where do processors go from here? What is the fate of large projects caught in mid-development? How to producers and processors cooperate to ensure a sustainable and profitable future? This event will serve to set the discussion table for the annual GPA Convention in San Antonio, Apr. 13-16, 2015.

This event is sponsored by Leidos Engineering.

The Future of US Refining

Fri, Feb 6, 2015

Oil & Gas Journal’s Feb. 6, 2015, webcast will focus on the future of US refining as various forces this year conspire to pull the industry in different directions. Lower oil prices generally reduce feedstock costs, but they have also lowered refiners’ returns, as 2015 begins with refined products priced at lows not seen in years. If lower per-barrel crude prices dampen production of lighter crudes among shale plays, what will happen to refiners’ plans to export more barrels of lighter crudes? And as always, refiners will be affected by government regulations, particularly those that suppress demand, increase costs, or limit access to markets or supply.
