For the complete article in the Farmington Daily Times use this link-->http://www.daily-times.com/farmington-opinion/ci_26938726/column-sa...The shale oil boom which returns 25 percent of the New Mexico State revenue is under "bust" threat from Saudi Arabia.The current price decline in both midland Texas light sweet crude and brent (world price) will begin to defer future projects if prices fall to $72 a barrel and below. An estimated 80 percent of production and projected production in the next five years requires price stability higher than $ 75 per barrel. Saudi Arabia is combining market share strategy with a world oversupply of crude oil.Oil producers in New Mexico are partially protected through cash flow hedges, which are crude barrels sold forward with prices established in futures (must be higher than present prices). However,…Continue

Column: The resource war and San Juan Basin oil By Dr. Daniel Fine Special to The Daily Times

For the complete article use this link--> http://www.daily-times.com/election2014/ci_27283196/column-resource-war-and-san-juan-basin-oil Resource War and San Juan Basin oil Oil and gas companies in the Southwest, the Rocky Mountains and the Dakotas are revising or recalibrating their capital budgets for 2015 as the price per barrel of west Texas intermediate crude trades in the $50 range. Most companies are moving into a cycle downturn phase in defense against a world price decline mostly aimed at unconventional production (shale or light tight oil). The question is how much cost savings coupled with production declines is ahead? And how long will the Saudi Aramco market share impact last?It is now clear that the San Juan Basin and the Four Corners will be significantly impacted. A loss of two and possible three rigs will contract the general economy. Job…Continue

Paula, I would post this in the Howard County group.
Comment by Paula Oliva on July 12, 2017 at 10:27pm

I own mineral rights in Section 21, Block 32 T2N of Howard County.  I am interested in selling and have gotten several offers for my rights, but I don't know if they are offering top money.  How do I find out what my mineral rights are actually worth?

I just found out yesterday that Firewheel will not be renewing our lease in Mitchell County.Has anybody heard whether or not any of the companies are still looking for leases in that county? If so, what is anybody leasing for per acre?

Comment by Wade Caldwell on July 30, 2014 at 8:32pm
The deed records will control, although the will can act as a conveyance document if it was probated and recorded in the deed records. In other words, the will cannot create a mineral interest that does not exist or has since been sold.
Comment by ferrell nolan on July 30, 2014 at 1:03pm

A great grandfather's will describes several thousand acres of mineral rights in Nolan, Mitchell & Taylor Counties, but we can find warranty deeds for only 1/2 of those acres.

Is it important to have in our possession these deeds or is the will sufficient in verifying ownership?

Comment by Robert M. on July 24, 2014 at 10:23pm

Hi Dena.  If you have an iphone or ipad there is an app called BHI Rig Count, which locates drilling rigs.  I do not know how comprehensive it is, but it does show this rig right now.  It shows the location to be just south of Co Rd 458 and west of Co Rd 442.  Best of luck!

Comment by j richardson on July 24, 2014 at 1:44pm

They are in Mitchell Co. about 7 miles North and 1mile west of the town of Loraine.

Where is the Three Span well and "Big K" dry hole?
Comment by Robert M. on July 24, 2014 at 10:01am

Thank you very much for the update.  I guess it is a good thing that there is not a dry hole marker on it.  Any other info or updates on this are greatly appreciated.  Thanks again!
