Hi Naive_investor,  I kind of agree with you.  The financing to do the horizontal drilling will come from this agreement.  How could you forward sell your natural gas if you don't have a contract with someone to buy your natural gas?  Thats why this news was so important because it now opens up there ability to access financing and opens up there natural gas to be sold to the market.    Yesterday's news was a double good news. 

      My oppinion is that they're putting off production news because it may send the stock price up and they want certain entities to buy these shares that are being sold by the flip gang.   There is a tonne of news to come out and this is just the beginning.  Good luck
