Sell the furniture, hock the jewelry, ditch the car and take the bus, cancel the reservations and do a stay-cation, tell your 23-year-old kid to get a job and pay his own student loan, drink domestic beer, wash and iron your own shirts, brown-bag it . . . .
Then solve this formula for the fair value per unit:
2.8 cents per well per year royalty (my rule of thumb at 75 mmcf/day and $4 NG price),
x 30 wells,
/ .11 cap rate,
= value per unit,
and then discount it back to present value using about a 20% annual rate for five years.
But don't believe me. I've been wrong, wrong, wrong on this for the last year.
