EOG Resources (EOG) is the unnamed company teaming with ZaZa Energy (ZAZA) to develop assets in Texas' Eaglebine trend, an SEC filing says. For acreage 100% owned by ZaZa, EOG will be the operator and earn a 75% working interest, while ZaZa will retain 25%; for acreage currently owned 75% by ZaZa and 25% by Range Resources (RRC), EOG will earn 50% while ZaZa and RRC each will retain 25%.

  • Good news, as this acreage needed a competent firm to develop it. Zaza is technically weak at drilling and completing. Essentially, Zaza gave away 75% of it acreage for a drilling carry. If this acreage is as good as it looks, EOG made a great deal. Zaza shareholders were the losers.
