  1. Very solid considering all that went down last year, starting with the epic #WTI nosedive.

    The growth in BOEs and DUCS is encouraging too.
    BOES (TPL’s share of oil and gas is measured in barrels of equivalency.)
    2018 – 8,800
    2019 – 13,700
    2020 – 16,200

    DUCs (drilled but uncompleted wells)
    2018 – 362 
    2019 – 486 
    2020 – 531

  2. Agree, sold quarter considering epic oil nosedive. Like the reinstatement of share buyback. Quarterly dividend a plus. They seem to spend a lot of time on thinking about compensation, but understand the transition to corporation may justify.
