New "name" in the Bakken. In the March, 2017, NDIC hearing dockets, a new name was noted, DW Slate. The company is not yet found on the NDIC "well search" site. From a pay site:
Austin real estate developer Forestar Group is selling its oil and gas assets targeting the Bakken and Three Forks in North Dakota for $59.5 million. Buyer DW Slate, an affiliate of New York alternative asset manager DW Partners, is getting 9,000 net acres (56% HBP) and an average 8% WI in ~140 producing wells primarily located on the Fort Berthold Indian Reservation near Parshall field. DW Partners was spun off from European hedge fund...$60 million / 9,000 net acres = $7,000
Forestar was also not found at the NDIC "well search" site. So, I don't see either of these as operators; they hold "interests" in mineral acres in North Dakota.
A DW Slate, LLC, has this address: 590 Madison Avenue, NY, NY 10022.
