Oil & Gas Exploration
Soon after the original organizers of the Lacassane
Company purchased the property, they began to investigate
revenue sources other than cattle ranching. One of the first
OGM leases obtained by the company was from Shell Oil.
The well which resulted from this lease is still producing
today. Mineral interests on the property are owned in part
by the company and partly by the shareholders. Although
the company has branched out into various operations,
Oil, Gas and Mineral leases are still a viable part of the
company's annual revenues today.
