You Say Fracking, I Say Frac'ing: Let's Talk Valuation
Date: June 17, 2015
Duration: 2 hours

Whether you call it fracking, frac'ing, or something else, advances in petroleum exploration & production technology including hydraulic fracturing have awakened the potential of mineral interests that have been dormant for decades or centuries. The unlocking of this wealth has now made minerals a major economic issue where they were once an ignored afterthought.

Have you ever asked any of the following questions? If so, this webinar is for you!

"I'm a licensed real estate appraiser, not a geologist: What is my role in the valuation of mineral rights?"

"I'm a geologist, not a licensed appraiser: What is my role in the valuation of mineral rights?"

"What is the relationship between the work of the reservoir estimator and the real estate appraiser?"

"Does fee simple include mineral rights? What are my professional responsibilities with respect to mineral rights? What are my risks? What do I do about mineral rights? How do I find out about mineral rights?"

"I think I see an oil pump jack on the property next door. What does that mean to my appraisal? What are my professional responsibilities?"

"Does frac'ing cause earthquakes? What are my professional responsibilities as an appraiser if my subject property is near a drilling operation and my subject property has suffered earthquake damage?"

"There are 275,000 oil and gas wells in the State of Ohio alone. I notice pump jack on the property adjacent to my subject. What will the new FHA regulations require? What are my obligations? What if there is an oil and gas well and I can’t see it, then what?"

Presenters will:

  • Provide an overview of hydraulic fracturing and discuss where is it happening.
  • Address frac’ing and whether or not it can cause earthquakes.
  • Discuss the differences among oil, gas and other materials.
  • Explain how reservoir estimators evaluate producing acreage.
  • Explain how reservoir estimators evaluate de-risked, non-producing acreage.
  • Explain how reservoir estimators evaluate unproven acreage.
