Mineral Rights Forum

America’s conversation place for mineral owners

Greetings.  This is for mineral owners generally located from north of Weimar on 155 down to Oakland on 532 and on down to Breslau. Then west to a Freyburg / Komensky line.  If you don't know where these places are, you're probably in the wrong place.

Congratulations on your new site .......though I'm in SW Fayette and outside this specific area I wish you all the best of luck and your share of production acitivity in the near future ... The EF maps I've seen show the area you of interest you've described as being well located in the shale play and surprising that there has been so little activity in that area so far ...but I bet it's coming !  In fact my personal guess is that at least the western portion of the area you talk about is some of the best prospect in the two county area of Northern Lavaca and southern Fayette and it seems to be that so far the drilling activity has been sort of skipping around the edges and so far ingnoring the meat of the prospect .

I know there are a few folks that have commented on the new pipelines in and around AH in the past such as RobSco and Billy.  I have forgotten who the company's are but I believe one was Copano that laid a line from AH to Conniff then onto their gather line further east.  The other is a much larger pipeline which is a major expansion (Enterprise, DCP, Energy Transfer ???) that runs across 77 then heads NE through AH's lease.  The pipeline ends up paralleling 90 around Sheridan.  Why did they turn the pipeline NE after crossing 77 and then head SE towards Sheridan.  Are they anticipating future production in our area to take advange of?  If anyone has any insight I would love to hear from you. 

That DCP Midstream pipeline runs through my place south of Schulenburg.  It runs more or less parallel to 77 and I'm sure it's one of those that you're talking about.  I had a chance to talk to some of those guys when they were doing some maintenance work, and they told me that pipeline runs from south to north.  This surprised me because we always thought it ran the opposite way.

 

Mr Irving , I failed to mention something you've no doubt seen yourself in your travels but that gathering yard in Luling is growing with oil trucks dumping there like a weed ....passed it headed for a meeting in S'Burg Thursday afternoon and it was swamped ....came back later that night and the line of trucks had doubled .

The pipeline I was referring to is the DK expansion which is owned my Copano.  It is what runs west/east through our area and delivers to the new Houston Central plant in Sheridan.

Mr. Washington, when I was a kid I danced my way around your neck of the woods. I think I got my first kiss at Freyburg hall and when the old hall at Dubina burned down years ago I held a cold Shiner high in fond memory. Like Mr. Chiliman that is not home over there where you are but I can sure see it from my back porch. I hope that I can contribute now and then and occassionally offer the perspective of the oil industry.  In spite of the implications elsewhere oil men and women are not the enemy.

 

I followed a gas play from Dubina to Freyburg once; Shell put together 25,000 acres over there some 30 years ago. Believe it or not it was in the Oakville sand at about 600 feet below the surface. Some marginal wells were drilled but it never turned out. Resevoir quality was bad and gas prices were....exactly the same per MCF as they are today. Anyway, it was facinating to watch such a large company prospect such a shallow, low volume, low pressure sand. 

 

As for the Eagle Ford play that now consumes us all, things seem to be developing pretty much like they should, at the pace that it will. 

 

Good luck.

Mike,

 

The Dubina Hall is still standing.  You must be thinking about New Bielau Hall that burned down years ago.

Keep in mind that Mike is from 'way out West' around Flatonia, so New Bielau is really a long way away.  I always felt the same way about the Cistern Recreation Hall.  Way Out West for me, for sure.  Felt like I was in Abilene or something.

The thing I mainly remember about New Bielau is the clever system of belts/axles where one electric motor drove every ceiling fan in the whole place.

JBob:  So it's a pretty sure thing that Copano is separate and apart from DCP, I guess.  The bottom line is that for us more gassy people (sorry, had to say it) we need the pipeline people to put in some infrastructure before much serious drilling begins.  I for one would hate to see my gas going up in a pretty flare.

Yes, sorry, New Bielau it was. That was a long time ago. Too many dance halls, so little time to get to them all just the one night a week. 

 

Mr. Irving, we always thought the grass was greener across the fence, you too, uh?

WI,

I believe the DK line is the infrastructure needed. I think its a 36 inch pipe that actually runs NE of AH then turns SE to Sheridan. Not sure why after it crosses 77 they did not go east as the crow flies to Sheridan.  The pipe tracks NE for a few miles. Only thing I can think of is maybe they had talks with ZaZa and ZaZa committed their future production, also maybe Copano foresees future drilling in NE Lavaca. Just talking my book here.

The DK line is built to handle NGL's.
