I Thought You Were a Professional?

Oklahoma Minerals Owners,

Berlin was having coffee at the sale barn this week where she ran across an ol' boy named Keith. Keith asked Berlin what she did when she wasn't raising stockers and she mentioned she's a landman. Keith looked a bit perplexed when he said "a landman? I thought you were a professional, like an accountant or doctor or some sh*t."

Sorry to disappoint Keith, both you and daddy wished Berlin was a doctor or some shi*t too. But even landmen can continue to learn. Below are some items that Berlin thought might be of interest to the readers of The Oil Scout. 

 Everything from these pipe fences to producing oil and gas from Oklahoma mineral property is going to become more expensive thanks to the new tariffs.

Learning How to Learn: A new course from Coursera created by UC San Diego

Never Split the Difference: Negotiations book (recommended, but you can't use what you learn when negotiating the sale of your Oklahoma oil and gas royalty interests to Berlin)

The Tariff Folly: This tax increase on imported aluminum and steel will punish American workers, invite retaliation that will harm U.S. exports, and make everything that is made out of aluminum and steel more expensive (so...,almost everything). Berlin predicts this will negatively affect the Oklahoma oil and gas industry more than the proposed increase in the gross production tax that the OIPA enjoys complaining about.

More to follow,
