As the owner of Sanchez Resources, a Sanchez Oil and Gas affiliate company based in Houston, I write to thank U.S. Rep. Jeff Landry, R-New Iberia, and Secretary of Natural Resources Scott Angelle for their assistance in keeping our job-creating operations in Louisiana. When the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries altered historic precedence and expedited the Catahoula Lake drawdown, our company faced a nearly impossible task of completing our drilling operations in the lake. However, with the prompt assistance of Congressman Landry and Secretary Angelle, we were able to find a common-sense solution with the LDWF. Thanks to our agreement with the LDWF, Sanchez Resources has the potential to generate over $5 million in royalties for the state of Louisiana and create jobs for her people. As a company which spent approximately $25 million in Louisiana in the last year — we applaud Landry, Angelle and the LDWF for their efforts to make Louisiana a pro-business environment. And as a company focused on the acquisition and development of oil and natural gas producing properties — Sanchez Resources looks forward to creating more jobs, revenues, and opportunities for the state.
