I think we've moved on past "Plastics"
huh, you say.
I really am surprised no local news coverage of this: Mystery buyer, mystery price for 500,000 acres of Appalachian leases
Let's count.. 500K acres times what $/acre the market is at these days? I think that is a couple orders of magnitude more $$ than is involved in say the former Hilton Hotel bankruptcy that gets lots of coverage all around.
Read the last line of that link to get to the interesting point. Whomever was buy side on that must be one of two things. Platts suggests only the first option, that the buyer was a publicly reporting company, but one that is so big that a multi-billion dollar deal did not warrant public disclosure of a material event. The other possibility is that the buyer was a private entity. I'm thinking a sovereign player. Who is left though? The Sultan of Brunei?
