Recent asset sales (I, II) by Magnum Hunter (MHR +3.9%) and Quicksilver Resources (KWK +2.9%) are just the beginning, as drillers reach a point where their cash flow isn't enough to pay down big debts racked up in the shale land grab. The combined long-term debt for 85 small and midsize U.S. drillers was more than $130B at the end of Q3 2012, according to one estimate.

    It's about time these people start using their assets to pay down their
    debt and concentrate on other holdings. As an MHR investor I sure hope this jumpstarts the company.

    if they didn't they would wind up like some of the company's they have acquired, who couldn't and wound up broke.
