    Increasing daily production by that much is HUGE, but perhaps the most important piece of news seems to have been glossed over:


    "This acquisition will mark an important change in the Vanguard strategy. For the first time in its history, Vanguard will be allocating capital to drilling wells on these acquired properties"


    Change in strategy, very interesting.

    >100% non-operated properties with an average working interest of 10%<


    Does this mean that VNR's interest is actually 11.3 Mcfe/day ?
