  • In September 2017, New Dawn Minerals, an affiliate of New Dawn Energy, acquired LaBokay Natural Resources, a mineral company owning servitudes and fee lands in multiple parishes in the State of Louisiana.
    • Encompassing 273,000 net mineral acres, LaBokay’s rights stretch almost the entire length of Western Louisiana from the state’s northern to near its southern borders. The holdings are located in Allen, Beauregard, Bossier, Calcasieu, DeSoto, Natchitoches, Rapides, Sabine, Vernon and Webster parishes.
    • LaBokay’s website is:
  • In February 2018, NDE entered into a joint venture with Roxanna Oil Company, a privately held Houston oil and gas exploration and production company, and its partners to develop shallow chalk formations in Sabine Parish, Louisiana.
    • The development area covers more than 24,000 acres leasehold primarily in the legacy Pendleton-Manny Field.
    • The joint venture drilled the initial shallow (TVD ~3,000’) well in 2018, followed by additional three horizontal wells to the same formation in 2019.
    • The three successful wells had average IPs of 120-590 BOPD.
  • In May 2018, NDE and Eagle Valley Energy, a portfolio company of Alliance Bernstein Financial, signed a joint development agreement to develop 18,000 (gross) acres in the Haynesville and Mid-Bossier Formations in East Texas.
    • The acreage is located in the Haynesville and Bossier Shale “sweet spot” with porosity ranging from 7%-10%.
    • Both the Haynesville and Bossier reservoirs can be co-developed from single pads.
    • Recent offset horizontal wells hold a substantial production rate for a long period of time. IP 210 is approaching the same as the IP 30
    • The first joint development horizontal well was completed in the 1Q 2020. The well has the option of adding a stacked lateral in the Mid-Bossier Shale. A second well is planned in 2021 with future additional wells as is prudent.
