Last Crown petroleum and natural gas rights sale of fiscal year today

Unofficially, the $42 million sale pushed the fiscal year-to-date total to slightly more than $115 million. Anything close to the March total again this month will push the final 2012-2013 fiscal year total well past the 2012 calendar total of $139.2 million. 

It remains to be seen if the current price of natural gas will impact today’s sale. It has been above the so-called four dollar benchmark now for nearly three weeks.
