We have a tract located in Milam County out of the Juan Jose Acosta Survey in Abst. 1 in which we received a minimal offer ($15 pna) and a 1/6 royalty.  This seems very low to me.  Are others receiving offers in Milam County?  Thanks!

Three years ago XTO was paying $400 an acre for 255 acres 3 miles South of Gause, Have no idea if they will pick up the two year extension in January or not. I'm kinda hoping they don't and I can sign another lease for $500 an acre or more. There's production within two miles or less of my property to the East, South, and West. I kept hoping they would drill mine but no luck for the last 3 years, maybe in the future as activity has increased around me.

If any landman reads this you might want to contact me in January just in case the two year extension isn't picked up.

I have mineral interests in the Gause area.  I see that Allied Energy just completed a well about 5 miles southwest of Gause and hydrocarbon "shows" of the Eagle Ford shale formation were present.  Is anyone seeing a pick up in leasing activity?

That sounds low, XTO and a few others have been pretty active in the area recently, bonus of $300-400+ and 20% royalty.

Company has expressed interest in acreage in SW part of county.  Offering $150 an acre will go to $250 with a 2 year extension.  20% royalty.  Anyone had any recent offers for comparison?  I don't like the extension and the $150 seems low to me.

I was advised to have an idemnification clause added to the lease which would protect the lessor from liability resulting from damage or contamination caused by the horizontal drilling, fracking process. There are several places around the country where the EPA has gotten involved when water wells were contaminated resulting in cleanup expense, damages and fines. Are others requiring this type of clause be added?

I heard XTO has been in the area recently @ $400 and 20%

Dennis -- Although it doesn't sound like you're still talking to XTO, how much did they offer as a lease/royalty rate?

Milam County Landmen ??

Does anyone know what companies are leasing in the county and who the landmen are?  I have 255 acres SE of Gause that had been leased by Wagner OIl and the three year lease expired and the renewal option was not exercised. I was contacted by XTO Energy who had leased 48 acres near Milano from me in October about this 255 a week before the three year lease expired and expressed an interest in leasing it. But I've not heard from them since so I'm thinking I would like to contact any other company that's leasing in the county and see if they would have an interest if I drop the price from the offer XTO made down to $350.00 an acre for the first three years and 1/4 of the minerals, or $400.00 an acres and 1/5 of the minerals.

  So if anyone else knows who other than XTO Energy is leasing please post it or send me an email.
