Greetings!  Does anyone know of the going rate for large water sales (for drilling and fracking purposes) nowadays in the Eagle Ford Shale area?  (I'm in the McMullen/Live Oak County area of TX, if it matters.)  Water was selling, I believe, for 50-cents/barrel some years back....  Many thanks for any information that you can please soon provide.  Thanks!

Not sure if they are still in bankruptcy but probably are. With no production on their wells (Since May 2014) and term expired, looks like open season to me. Anyone wanting to lease your property will run the traps on all this to make sure that they can get a valid lease

Here is the latest I can find on this / Dec 2016:

Dimmit County - Mineral Rights Owner...
What is the status of Gambit Oil's former leases? ... are they still held by the bankruptcy courts? My leases have expired with this now defunct co.
Interested in rcvg new leases. Any replies, much appreciated.

Doug,  It is a fee that is part of the Severance Tax it is part of the Crude Oil Production Tax that is collected and paid to the State Comptrollers office which is part of the severance tax.  Here a link to Comptrollers site https://www.comptroller.texas.gov/taxes/crude-oil/ hope this helps.

My lease form is one that very clearly a 25% cost free royalty. My position is that they are getting 75% of my minerals and I am not paying for anything against my royalty other than severance taxes.

I see that I am being charged for "Oil Field Cleanup"  Anybody know what that is?

Does anyone have a feel for the royalty and lease bonus rates in southern Zavala county just north of Crystal City? We've been approached a couple of times over the past month by two reputable operators in that area

Dennis - 

Your interests in SW Atascosa and SE Frio are very, very, very, very valuable.  In most of that area, not only is the Eagle Ford extremely productive but the Pearsall formation that runs about 2,000 feet deeper is just as productive. 

If you will accept my invitation to become A Friend on The Forum, I will discuss my history in helping people in that specific area of the Eagle Ford with you.  

In the meantime, I advise that you don't sign or even verbally agree to anything.  And, if you don't have an experienced Oil and Gas Attorney to consult, I can suggest a couple to you.

Could anyone give a general idea of what bonus, royalty and primary term of leases may be going for in the SW part of Atascosa and SE part of Frio Counties?  Understood a good part of this acreage is HBP.  Any information helpful.

Comment by TR Levee on November 29, 2016 at 3:03pm

Anyone got current lease rates in Burleson Co/EaglefordShale. Also anyone have any info on Halcon these days.

Comment by William Douglas Archer on August 14, 2016 at 4:13pm
You can likely find it on the railroad commission website and can then download the plat which will detail the land included.
