LEASED PROPERTIES AND LEASES
As of March 31, 2018, the Company had three significant leased properties located in Oregon, Wyoming, Louisiana, and the Gulf of Mexico, which are leased on a triple-net basis to major tenants, described in the table below. These major tenants are responsible for the payment of all taxes, maintenance, repairs, insurance, and other operating expenses relating to the leased properties. The long-term, triple-net leases generally have an initial term of 11 to 15 years with options for renewals. Lease payments are scheduled to increase at varying intervals during the initial terms of the leases. The following table summarizes the significant leased properties, major tenants and lease terms:
The future contracted minimum rental receipts for all leases as of March 31, 2018, are as follows:

Substantially all of the lease tenants' financial results are driven by exploiting naturally occurring oil and natural gas hydrocarbon deposits beneath the Earth's surface. As a result, the tenants' financial results are highly dependent on the performance of the oil and natural gas industry, which is highly competitive and subject to volatility. During the terms of the leases, management monitors the credit quality of its tenants by reviewing their published credit ratings, if available, reviewing publicly available financial statements, or reviewing financial or other operating statements, monitoring news reports regarding the tenants and their respective businesses, and monitoring the timeliness of lease payments and the performance of other financial covenants under their leases.

On December 21, 2017, the parent company of the Company's tenant at the Portland Terminal Facility, Arc Logistics, closed on its previously announced merger agreement, whereby it was acquired by Zenith Energy U.S., LP. ("Zenith"). In its earlier proxy filing associated with the merger, Arc Logistics described a number of different actions available to it under the Portland Lease Agreement, which include (i) continuing with the current terminal lease, (ii) exercising its buy-out option on the terminal or (iii) terminating the lease at its fifth anniversary, subject to the termination provisions in the lease. The proxy suggested that Arc Logistics had not yet decided which of those plans of action it may select, and it remains unclear whether the merger will have any impact on whether, or when, any of the options would be exercised. In January 2018, the Company entered into an amendment with Zenith Terminals which extended the notice period for the fifth anniversary termination option for an additional six months, from February 1, 2018 to August 1, 2018. The Company has not received notice with respect to either a buy-out or termination option election and, to date, the terminal lease continues to operate in the same manner as prior to the merger.
Acquisition of Pinedale LGS Non-Controlling Interest
On December 29, 2017, Pinedale LP I, a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company, purchased Prudential's 18.95 percent non-controlling equity interest in Pinedale LP for consideration of approximately $32.9 million. As the transaction resulted in an increase in the Company's interest in Pinedale LP, but not a change in control, the purchase was accounted for as an equity transaction. Upon closing the transaction, the Company indirectly owns 100 percent of Pinedale LP through its wholly-owned subsidiaries Pinedale GP and Pinedale LP I and there is no longer a noncontrolling interest in the Company's consolidated financial statements.
