    - Kevin K. Leonard, Tumbleweed Exploration, LLC Midland, TX
  • “Lee Vendig is our consultant and chief negotiator who negotiated the best pricing on our crude in East Texas Oil Field.

    “After working with Lee Vendig for a few months, I can recommend him highly as a consultant. He knows the oil market, stays up-to-date with it and is good at explaining pricing options to his clients. He responds quickly to phone calls and is helpful in giving his clients appropriate language for them to use in negotiating with buyers. His monthly commentary on the current state of the world oil market is useful; he pulls together information from several varied sources. It would take the busy operator many hours to research and accumulate the same information. Lee is pleasant to work with and he also has a good sense of humor! In addition to his helping you to get the best price for your oil, I believe you will find him enjoyable to work with.”

  • “I wanted to take a moment to thank you for the recent advisories you have sent on various subjects related to the oil market and pricing. These summaries are useful to me in understanding the market and being able to make rational decisions on our oil sales. You have kept Carr Resources, Inc. at the top of the price paid for oil in all areas where you market our oil. I have recommended your services to many companies and hope that they will all avail themselves of your marketing strength. I had wondered years ago why no one was making a cooperative out of all the small operators to have more leverage in the market. Your position in accomplishing this is not only profitable the relationship is enjoyable.”

    "Lee is spot on in his market evaluations and contract negotiation skills. Lee is personable and easy to understand. His fees are very reasonable, especially for the results achieved. We continue to do business with Lee because of his unstoppable dedication to monitoring and interpreting world and national events that affect oil and gas prices and to making sure that we always have the latest information before we act on a new contract. We simply will not act without first seeking his advice on a contract. I would highly recommend Lee Vendig to any company, large or small. He is indeed a true professional and knows his stuff. The Survey asked me to \"Choose THREE attributes that best describe this service provider\" and I chose all of them. Unfortunately, they wouldn\'t publish it until I culled it down to three. But in reality, Lee Vendig exhibits all of the qualities listed, Great Results, Personable, Expert, Good Value, On Time, High Integrity, and he is Creative."

    "I have worked with Lee on a couple of projects and his analysis and timing were very beneficial for our company. His recommendations literally increase our cash flow in the six figure range. The cost to do business with his company on a monthly basis is so minimum to the bottom line that I didn't hesitate to continue this relationship in other ventures. His relationships with the first level purchasers and his knowledge of their markets really shortened my decision tree and gave me a comfort level when negotiating for our company's marketing needs. If you need that extra comfort level before making your marketing decisions please give Lee a call."

NATURAL GAS MARKETING SERVICES: WILLISTON-SHALLOW NIOBRARAN SHALE GAS PLAY

LDV Oil and Gas Consultants Provides Services to the Williston Basin on the western shelf of North America

The Williston Basin is a structural-sedimentary intra-cratonic basin located on the western shelf of North America.  The present-day basin occupies a large segment of the northern Great Plains and extends northward into Canada. The basin region is a generally flat lying, moderately dissected plain with minimum topographic relief. The Canadian Shield and the Sioux Uplift border the basin on the east and southeast.  The Black Hills Uplift, Miles City Arch, Porcupine Dome, and Bowdoin Dome define the western and southwestern borders. The United States part of the basin covers approximately 143,000 square miles, with a total sedimentary rock volume of approximately 202,000 square miles.

Shallow gas was discovered in the Upper Cretaceous Eagle Sandstone on the Cedar Creek Anticline in southeastern Montana in 1916. In 1951, discoveries of the Beaver Lodge field by the Amerada Oil Company on the Nesson Anticline in North Dakota and the Richey and Southwest Richey fields by Shell Oil Company in eastern Montana sparked further interest.

The chalk lies at elevations ranging from about 1,500 feet above sea level on the Sioux Ridge to about 5,000 feet below sea level in the Williston Basin. The depth of burial is from several hundred feet in eastern South Dakota to about 3,000 feet in parts of western South Dakota.

Estimating the technically recoverable oil and natural gas resource base in the United States is an evolving process. For shale gas and oil, the evolution of resource estimates is likely to continue for some time. The size of the technically recoverable oil and natural gas resource base in the United States becomes evident only as producers drill into geologic deposits with oil and gas potential and attempt to produce from them on a commercial basis. A full report on potential resources has not been assessed and no commercial production has yet been obtained from the Niobrara in South Dakota. However, numerous gas shows have been encountered in the Niobrara throughout the state over the years, indicating the possibility of widespread Niobrara gas accumulations. In 2008, Deutsche Bank reported the average well cost as between $3 and $4 million dollars.
