Robert, you can find decline curves online in the company investor presentations. This will give you a good idea of the decline curve in your area. You can then apply that to your past and current production to get a fair future cash flow model for financial planning.

Dennis, Totally depends where your lease is located. If in the core of the good production, these numbers are way low (but if your block was in the core I would be surprised you are unleased right now). 

If you are in the more updip or thinner EF area, numbers may be more appropriate although the 20% is low for the trend in general.

For a property in Gonzales County I have been offered $750 per net mineral acre, a three year lease term, and 20% royalty. How does this stack up to other lease terms in the area?  Is anyone interested in offering better terms? Thank you.

I want to get more informed re: production decline rates on wells in Gonzales County. I am in production, own the minerals. Want to do some financial planning and need some feel for how ours wells will decline.

any help would be appreciated by this 5th generation Texan now living on the left coast!

I'm looking for approximately 5-10 acres to possibly place a commercial disposal well.  Must have retained surface rights, of course.


Thanks in advance!

This is true, the AAPL says that no one really knows what a Producers 88 is. There is no standard lease.  If you use the services of an attorney, always find out what the turnaround time will be.  I have seen a post recently where a mineral owner missed out because the leased laid on the attorneys desk too long.  All it takes is a dry hole or poor producing well to end the project.

If ya have questions about leases, bonuses, etc, talk to an experienced Tax and oil and gas attorney.  Don't let some slick land-man tell you that the leases (model 99, etc are al the same, they all have to be read in their entirety.

Has anyone here used Hilltop Royalties to negotiate their leases? I came across their ad on Facebook. Their website is http://www.hilltoproyalties.com   I called their number and they said that since I have already had a lease offer that their fee structure would be based on a % of the additional amount they were able to negotiate for my lease. They said that they would work with me to find a fee structure that I find agreeable, whether it be a percentage of bonus or percentage of royalty or both. Has anyone here used a company like this? My minerals are in Ward County but I am posting here since they said they focus on the Permian Basin and Eagle Ford. I am new to this website so if there is a better place to post this please let me know.

Thank you,

I ment lessee

My advice  to Mickie would be to educate yourself of the basic terms  and conditions  of a lease,i.e. bonus, royalty, number of years, Pugh clause  etc. Then  hire a reputable land man without any conflict of interest or a trusted experienced friend  that knows the area  and terms of similar leases. Negotiate  the business points of lease with the lessor ( DO NOT SIGN ANYTHING)   Then hire an  attorney that specializes in oil and gas complete all legal documents based on your business points.
