Fran we are a potential lessee in the area and happy to help recommend an atty too but would first want to make sure we review your position.  If possible or still un-leased please send over information to info@slawsonenergy.com

Does anyone have an oil & gas attorney that they would recommend?  We are in negotiations on a lease in Frio County, and need a new attorney.  Ours does not ever return calls, and is apparently too busy to do what he said that he would do in the time frame that he said he would do it in.

Also, if you know any attorney to avoid, that will also be helpful.

Please, help!!

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

Has anyone seen any permit activity in Frio County of late? My lease is with Marathon Oil and they seem to be drilling in one area down to the Pearsall Shale.

Collin Eaton Reporter- Houston Business Journal - Apr 15, 2013, 1:45pm CDT

Eagle Ford Oil and Gas Corp. (OTC Markets: ECCE) said Monday it has received a $22 million letter of commitment from San Francisco-based financial adviser and fund manager EM Capital Management LLC.
The Houston oil and gas exploration and production company said it plans to use the funding to drill three to four wells in the development and exploration of oil and gas assets south of San Antonio in Frio County, where the company acquired an 85 percent working interest in more than 3,600 acres.
That development acreage is known as the East Pearsall Project, the company said in a statement.
EM Capital Management is a division of investment manager EMCH Investment Corp.
Eagle Ford Oil and Gas bought the acreage in the Eagle Ford Shale oil and gas play last July. The year prior to that, the company acquired Sandstone Energy LLC in exchange for 17.8 million shares of common stock.HBJ

Yes, Mr. Hester we are related. Actually I'm related to all Kothmanns especially in that area of Junction, Menard, and definitely Mason.

160 acres in Frio County can be pretty valuable, if you are in the right spot. Your uncle did the right thing. You should look at the video tutorial on the home page and search the RRC website for activity in your area, if you have a legal descrption.

Hi everyone!

Here's our situation:

A few months ago my family was contacted by an attorney named Kent Hackney, who informed us  that we had inherited the mineral rights to a 160 acre tract in Frio County. He sent us some rather confusing-looking documents which he said we should sign and return to him as soon as possible. Well, none of us signed anything, and my uncle got his own attorney to look into this. He gave my uncle a list of several questions for Hackney and when he called and started asking them, Hackney hung up on him.

We had assumed that this was at best small potatoes, but this lawyer's behavior has me thinking there might be some real money behind this.

Any thoughts or suggestions would be very welcome.

BTW for Kammi Kothmann: Back in 1981 I worked at the Junction, Tx. KOA for a very good and honest man by the name of Johnny Kothmann. Are you any relation to him?
