HOUSTON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Mesa Royalties II, LLC (“Mesa II”) is pleased to announce it has closed on the acquisition of a mineral and royalty portfolio containing ~15,000 net royalty acres in the core of the Haynesville shale play from an undisclosed seller. The acquired asset contains 472 existing PDP wells, and the projected asset cash flow for the next twelve months is ~$30 million.

The asset has robust existing cash flow that allows us to begin an immediate distribution plan for our investors. The assets are situated in the core of the Haynesville in north Louisiana, and there are currently 9 rigs drilling on the acreage today. Additionally, ~50% of the active drilling permits in the basin are currently located on this acreage footprint, which will allow the position to continue to have a significant cash flow profile for years to come.”
