AE&J Royalties LLC is offering for sale a mineral interest position located in the core of the Delaware Basin in southern Lea County, N.M.

Detring Energy Advisors, which was retained for the sale, said the AE&J position is "concentrated in the highest-returning portion of the highest-returning basin in the Lower 48" with substantial near-term cash flow as a result of premier operators drilling extended laterals utilizing next-gen, high-intensity completion techniques.

Cash flow from the offered assets is forecasted to reach roughly $5 million in 2020E. Currently, the position includes exposure to seven proved developed producing and 17 drilled but uncompleted horizontal wells and permits.

Detring added the offering includes non-cost bearing clauses across roughly 50% of the net royalty acreage that increases margin and realized cash flow. Additionally, the offering's high royalty interests average about 2% per well, accelerating the impact of on-mineral development.
