Which way is better to have your mineral rights?

Started by Tim. Last reply by oldoak Aug 27. 4 Replies

I have a question. Four of us friends bought 300 acres many years ago together. We all have 50% of the rights in that land. We have now split that land into 4 equal tracks so each one owns his own…Continue

I included the permit for this well in earlier reply - it includes the plat. Runs NW to SE basically along the length of the horizontal (with appropriate footages on either end for unit stand off distances). Wide enough to fit several  parallel horizontal wellbores in this same unit (which is typical plan when these units are set up).

Comment by John Swicegood on May 21, 2014 at 6:18pm

How is a drilling unit shaped, does it just run the distance of the horizontal well? thanks

Comment by John Swicegood on May 21, 2014 at 12:02pm

Thanks Rockman!

You can go to the permit or completion section and use the API number to find the well too. Different filings in each area.

I am having trouble with the GIS viewer accepting the well number. I will keep trying. The lease was through Bow property, they were acting on behalf of Apache as best I could tell at the time.

Above is permit and plat for this well (670 acres in unit)

Use the Tx RRC GIS map site to find the Apache well in A-235. This will allow you to look at permit and related info on this well includiing all paperwork pertaining to permit (P-12, etc.)

Well is the Apache McCullough Wineman EF 1H. API is 42-041-32218.

Are you leased to Apache? If so, Division orders take several months to be sent out after production commences.

Comment by John Swicegood on May 21, 2014 at 11:43am

Rockman, wow, thanks! I have some acreage in the 235, hard to know if the drilling unit is on my acreage, I have not received division orders. Any advise on how to find out. 

Comment by Rock Man on May 21, 2014 at 11:40am

Apache has drilled and completed an Eagle Ford horizontal in A-235. Completion data included below. Produced over 22,700 BO & 45 MMCF gas in March (initial production month / probably partial month of production).

Laredo is also drilling EF horizontals near the Texas Speedway.

You can use the Tx RRC GIS mapping site (in the link below) to find any survey and then check out industry activity.



Comment by John Swicegood on May 21, 2014 at 3:03am

Does anyone know of any drilling activity in the A-120, A-235, A-245, Abstract 206, the R. Ferguson Survey, the D. Wickson Survey, Pendelton Rector Survey in Brazos County, thanks!
