New name in Michigan. Dart Oil and Gas has assigned over 700 leases and transferred over 80 wells in 20 counties to Layline Energy III of Houston,TX.
Layline Energy came out of Layline Petroleum. Layline Petroleum founded by Chris Lewis and Dr Mukul Sharma in 2006 to deploy modern technologies on legacy
oil fields and substantially increase their production capacity.(Dr. Sharma is a professor at Univ. of Texas, Austin and the Chair in Petroleum and Geosystems
Engineering. He has 30+/- patents either pending or granted from 1995-2017 and has published over 300 journal articles. His interests are hydraulic fracturing,
oilfield water management, formation damage and improved oil recovery). Layline Petroleum sold $375M of producing properties in Texas in 2013. This privately held
company has drilled in Texas and Louisiana. Layline Energy III organized on 1/24/18 in Delaware and 4/24/18 in Michigan. Layline Oil and Gas formed in Mich
on 4/2/18. Well transfers reflected in weekly MDEQ permit report. Assignment of leases recorded in 20+ counties as well as a Mortgage and Fixture Filing betwen Layline
Energy III and Frost Bank (Houston). "Future Advance Mortgage" signed on 4/30/18 and recorded on 5/7/18.

Counties involved: Gladwin-155 leases, Missaukee-41 wells, Kalkaska-1 well, Crawford-6 wells, Clare-6 wells, Midland-69 leases, Roscommon-1 lease, Bay-91 leases,
Iosco-1 well, 2 leases, Arenac- many parcels 19-3, 19-6, 19-7, 20-6, Isabella-11 leases, Wexford 21n-9w, Montcalm-127 leases, Newaygo-17 wells, 49 leases,
Saginaw-87 leases, Eaton- 25 leases, 6 ROW, Osceola-4 wells, Lake-1 well, 25 leases, 6 ROW, Tuscola-40 leases, Ionia-18 leases.

Could be more counties, wells and leases involved. Wells appear to be from multiple formations from Traverse and Dundee to the Richfield and the PDC. Some wells were drilled
75 years ago, some in the 1980's and some in the 2000's. Many were reworked over the years and many had pretty high production numbers for short periods of time.

"Layline" - imaginary line to indicate the point at which a sailboat should tack in order to just clear the mark.

Appears Merit Energy Co. has assigned,conveyed and sold some/all of their interests in 21 +/- Michigan counties to Lambda Energy Resources of Dallas, Tx. Assignment in Kalkaska county shows 280 pages of leases, deeds, pipeline ROW and easements. Included in deal are Merit's natural gas processing facility in Kalkaska (Kalkaska Gas Plant) and the 225 mile long NGL pipeline which cuts through Kalkaska, Missaukee, Clare, Isabella, Gratiot, Saginaw and other counties which brings ethane and other products south. In total, some 1,257 wells in 14 counties transferred to Lambda. Oscoda county shows 190 leases assigned to Lambda. Deal was signed in July, 2018.
308 page Future Advance Mortgage signed between Lambda Energy Resources and Citibank.

Lambda Energy Resources, Dallas, Tx. Redevelops existing conventional oil and gas fields in the U.S. They buy existing fields that have remaining potential and use proven technologies to tap that potential.
CEO/President and Chief Development Officer are both Electrical Engineers with Masters in Petroleum Engineering. Lambda registered in Michigan on 7/3/18 and formed in Delaware on 2/1/18.
