00:00 - 00:03It appears that we cannot lease the acreage in Section 7.
00:04 - 00:05The landowners are savvy.
00:05 - 00:07They know what we paid their neighbors to the South.
00:08 - 00:12They will not lease to the North.
00:12 - 00:15Unless we pay a bonus of $25,000 per acre.
00:17 - 00:19Maybe pay a higher royalty.
00:19 - 00:21Maybe a gift certificate to Applebee's?
00:24 - 00:26Sir...
00:27 - 00:28They...
00:31 - 00:33They are vegetarians. Applebee's will not work.
00:34 - 00:36They demand $25,000 per acre.
00:53 - 00:58All secretaries and staff, get out now. Lock the door.
01:13 - 01:15What the hell are they thinking?
01:15 - 01:17I knew we should have never started paying such high bonuses.
01:18 - 01:23I should have trusted my own instincts.
01:25 - 01:28What do they think is going to happen?
01:29 - 01:31we're #@#$!
01:31 - 01:34Now what will we do.
01:34 - 01:37What about the other acreage I asked you to lease?
01:37 - 01:40Certainly you were able to lease that acreage?
01:40 - 01:42Sir, the acreage was already under lease.
01:42 - 01:46You told me that they were ready to sign. Ready to sign!
01:46 - 01:48Sir, maybe we can take a top lease.
01:48 - 01:52A top lease is worthless
01:53 - 01:54It's worthless
01:56 - 01:57I have been in this business for 30 years.
01:57 - 02:00Never have I taken a top lease.
02:00 - 02:03A top lease is garbage.
02:04 - 02:08Are you kidding me?
02:08 - 02:13You should have gotten an assignment.
02:14 - 02:16I have a rig on standby.
02:17 - 02:21Do you have any idea how much it cost me? Thousands!
02:27 - 02:29We are doomed without a lease.
02:30 - 02:34If only you had listened to me. I told you.
02:34 - 02:36We cannot pay $25,000 per acre.
02:41 - 02:42It's too much.
02:43 - 02:47I cannot trust you any longer. You're traitors!
02:48 - 02:53Certainly you could have offered them something.
02:54 - 02:56$25,000 per acre.
02:56 - 02:59Do you have any idea how much it costs to drill a well?
03:00 - 03:02It will never payout! never!
03:04 - 03:07It's okay - there are jobs in Pennsylvania.
03:14 - 03:16Now I will have to fire the staff.
03:19 - 03:23Give them one week's severance pay.
03:25 - 03:26I may need a place to stay.
03:31 - 03:33A roof and a warm bed.
03:40 - 03:46I will bring my own towels and sheets, but I need a cook.
03:46 - 03:49Maybe it's not too late to start over.
03:53 - 03:56What is the day rate in Texas.
