Happy New Year! MDN Off Until Jan. 4; Our 2016 Prayer 4U

happy new year 2016MDN will not publish on Dec. 31 or Jan. 1. We will be back on Monday, Jan. 4. MDN’s prayer for you in 2016 is this:

May all of your land get leased (for obscenely high signing bonuses and royalty rates); may all of your drilling units get drilled on; may drilling rigs pop up like spring crocuses, providing jobs and new royalty income; may new pipelines pop up like summer dandelions, connecting hundreds and thousands of new wells; may all of those pipelines be filled to capacity; may the price of natural gas double in the New Year; may at least one ethane cracker plant receive a Final Investment Decision; and may 2016 be the safest year ever–with no fatalities in the oil & gas patch. Amen.
