As to oil prices, I’d like to see them higher, but there is going to be continued activity by operating companies, especially in counties like Lavaca, Fayette and DeWitt that have many “sweet spots”.  Companies will be cutting drilling in marginal and experimental areas. For useful information go to the link below and see what experts like R. T. Dukes and others say. For a better understanding read the whole article as I did.

Hello...I am looking to lease and/or buy 5-10 acres of land, preferably off a major highway or county road for the purpose of possibly obtaining a permit for a saltwater disposal well.  Three (3) phase nearby would be a huge plus.  Please text/call Tim Terry at 512-791-2499

Will do, thankyou.

Royalties are almost always paid on gross or net sale proceeds, but maybe double check your lease. You should also be able to match your stub to the figures filed with the RRC as to number of barrels sold (not produced).

Have lease with Petrohawk (now BHP Billiton).  There was a sale in which GeoSouthern now splits this lease.  50% Geo and 50% Billiton.

Royality checks of this month are significantly different, in talking to Billiton, they stated Geo removes oil by barrels and Billiton does not. 

I've left a message for further clarification from Billiton, but I'm told they will get back to me in two weeks (-+).

Has anyone had any experience or knowledge of this practice?

Thanks in advance!

I would like to visit my lease. How do I go about locating it? It's near Hocheim, Tx.  Abstract A-447 owned by Conoco.

We are located about 5 miles from Yoakum.
