Surface rights include the water rights on the property in Texas...depending on how deep the fresh water aquifers go. Around
me in Reeves county, they extend down to 2000 feet depth.
Ten years ago or so, $300/surface acre was about the average....$150 to
$750/acre was the range then. Now it starts at $750 and goes up
to $10,000/acre for surface property in Culberson county.

My advice is to hold out for more reasonable offers if you need the
money and want to get rid of the land. By the way, where is the land
in relation to Van Horn? I was just out to a homestead on 10 acres 12
miles south of Van Horn on Green River road....and the guy paid $3000
for the acreage he owns there.
Be advised the exploratory drilling of the stacked shale plays under Culberson county has just barely begun and the companies KNOW the
production reserves for both gas and oil are there.....so as the exploitation advances, the price of land will go up and up to whatever
the oil and gas company market will bear.

Hi-I’m new to this site and I’m hoping someone can help us. Last December 2017 we saw a junk mail offering $800 for our 9.24 acres land in Culberson County. We bought it for more than that so we held off on it. Last week, my son who studies in New York received a call from a Petroleum Landman, Marc Jacobsma and was asking for our contact numbers. We are in California and we have no idea how they tracked us through our son.
Long story short,the landman said he was willing to pay $300/ac for “the surface of the land.” Not sure what he meant by this at all. Our land sits on NW/4 of the SW/4 of the NE/4 of section 2, block 112.

Can someone please tell me if this amount is fair or should it be countered?

Thank you all in advance.

Apache article with good maps of infrastructure build out and well locations.

Is anybody here involved with or knows anything about, Charger Shale and their activity?  My guess is they are waiting on the 70 miles gas pipeline to be installed.  Any info would be greatly appreciated!

Thank you!

Lots of factors control the "spud to first check received" factor. I would say the range is 4 to 9 months with 6 months being the average

Comment by Robert E Sullivan on November 14, 2017 at 2:25pm



What is the average timeline for a horizontal well being spudded to getting that first check?   I know there are numerous factors at play, but just curious.  Thanks!

Comment by Rock Man on November 4, 2017 at 1:31pm

TD = total depth / planned end point on a well.

For a horizontal, it will be the end of the lateral

Comment by Lamont on November 4, 2017 at 1:16pm
What does TD mean?
