Frac Sand Shipment Largest on Record

Preferred Proppants announced last week it has begun commercial operations at its Atascosa sand mine and facility. The opening of the Eagle Ford Shale facility is part of the company's strategy to move production closer to the demand.

This opening represents a significant event within our continued, multi-year localization strategy. The Atascosa facility, coupled with our second local plant opening in the near term in Monahans, Texas, will ultimately add over 6 million tons of capacity available to our customers in both the Permian Basin and Eagle Ford Shale.
— Michael O’Neill, founder and CEO of Preferred Sands

 

The facility is in the heart of the Eagle Ford in Atascosa and Bexar counties and will ultimately produce 3 million tons of local sand per year. Other details include:

  • Wet and dry plant and storage silos
  • Automated, multi-lane, drive-in, drive-out trucking capabilities.
  • Produces high quality 40/70 and 100 mesh local sand

Be careful here because if you are not the drill site then they can leave you out of the unit.  Generally these companies do the "honorable" thing.  I can put you in touch with a contract landman with EOG who works this area and see if that helps.  Send me an email at james@oginfo.com and I'll introducing you all by email.

Comment by Diane E Mallett on May 11, 2016 at 2:17pm

I learned in Sept 2015 that I inherited one mineral acre of a 10 acre track from my mother's estate.  I also learned that the other heirs had been contacted by EOG and had signed 3 year leases with a $ 1500 per mineral acre bonus.  Most of the heirs signed their leases in 2013, but one signed in 2014.  I was never contacted.  EOG has since contacted me and I am being offered the same lease with a $ 300 bonus.  I have countered asking for what my cousins received.  EOG is holding firm with the $ 300 per mineral acre offer.  I do not have any knowledge of how the process works, I would like advise regarding next steps.  Should I settle for the $ 300 or hold out and hope they come around to the $ 1500?

Does anyone have any information about interest in drilling and developing production in the AUSTIN CHALK in North Eastern Atascosa County.  In years past there was a lot of production in the East Pleasanton field east of Pleasanton toward Coughran and Blackhill south of Hwy 97 toward Floresville.  Those wells were around 4800 ft and never Frac'd.  They produced more than forty years.  Much cheaper to drill and produce than the Eagle Ford.

Has there been any activity of any leasing going on in the northern part of Atascosa county? I am approx. 7 miles south east of Lytle and and about 7 miles south south west of somerset. I have 170 acres that is available for leasing.
Comment by Andy G. Grubbs on October 30, 2014 at 3:00pm

I think what you are asking is when is land no longer "HBP"  that is held by production.  You should be able to look that up in the original lease.   Often it is stated that after X amount of time with no production from the lease it is finished.  you can get ther records for a wells production, or production of the wells on a particular lease, from the Railroad commission.  use the gis map viewer and find the wells you are interested in to start your search.  there are some articles with explanations on how to find stuff on the RRC website here at the Mineral rights forum

need some information on Mineral Rights reverting back to land owner once O & G company leaves land. I have had several people bring this up to me and suggest I research it.. I have been given a name of a company that will do the research, They have qouted a price of 475.00 per day to do research.... Any suggestions or feedback on this topic.... Acreage in Atascosa County La Parita are 223 Acres.

Comment by Karen on October 29, 2014 at 12:27pm

My 10 acres have been permitted to drill (2 Wells). There is a pooling order. What does that mean?

On this map, you can see a wildcat well off to the w-nw of Somerset, and another off to the w-nw of Poteet. There are more off to the east and west. These went down to the Pearsall. Is there any way to get information on these wells? Is there a way to locate them on the Railroad Commission website?

Comment by Wesley N Moore on September 21, 2014 at 2:00am

Does anyone know about any Coal that Lessor's were interested in around Poteet about 30 years ago.. This place just West of town was Leased back then and after a certain period was dropped... People out of Dallas... Not familiar with particulars as my Mother was handling all, and we were left with Minerals of the place...

There has been some leasing interest but not a lot of leases taken in northern Atascosa, southern Bexar. However, I would keep an eye on some of the developments to the northeast of here, where they are branching out of the Eagle Ford in Gonzales County and getting some good results in the Buda and Austin Chalk.
