Did they give a reason for releasing the lease?  Did they ever pay the bonus?  Is that why you were angry?  

It looks like you signed a 3 year lease on September 17, 2014, and then Eagle released the lease on April 14, 2015.  That's not very typical, for a lessee to release the lease early, before it expires.  To answer your question about whether that prevents you from getting additional offers:  I don't see how it would.  Provided you still own the minerals in that tract, the previous 1997 lease has expired, and you haven't signed a new lease since April 14, 2015 that is not recorded, then your mineral interest is currently un-leased.  That means you could lease it at any time.  It's just a matter of an operator wanting to explore in that area and making an offer.

Signing a lease may discourage other offers until you get close to the expiration date. Really depends on how hot the area is.

In 2014, my husband and I signed a release of oil, gs, and mineral lease for Henderson County from Eagle Land Services.  Why?  We were angry with the company because we thought they were not honest.  This instrument is filed at the Henderson County Courthouse.  Does this prevent us from getting any additional offers on this property?  We would very much like to lease our land now.  We have 12.324 acres on the A. J. Clayton Survey A-156 and Thomas Y. Buford Survey A-112.

Clark, I don't see any new activity in this area at this time.   To the East-Northeast there are some older vertical wells drilled into the Travis Peak formation and the Pettet formation.  On the GIS map here well 30950 is producing from the Pettet formation and was completed in June 2009.   It is still producing 8 to 10 barrels of oil per day.     Well 31030 in A-704 is a vertical oil and gas well producing from the Travis Peak formation/completed in January 2011.

There are a couple more oil wells to the East-Northeast that were drilled into the Travis Peak formation that are still producing.  

Link to production data for well 31030:

Thanks Clint!  Good to find someone that knows what's going on!  This lease is for 34 acres in the J.C. Lane Survey, A-469.  Apparently this land has not been pooled/unitized.  It goes back to a 1944 Partition Deed (v. 288 p. 1 Henderson County Deed Records - Tract 5) among the Wofford heirs.  We have operating leases in other parts of Henderson County (Fairway, Hinton, Knight, Tri-Cities Units), but this apparently has not been drilled.  Thanks for checking!  Much appreciated!

Share your legal description(Section, Block or Abstract # )and I will check and see if there is any activity or production in the area of your minerals.

New member; great forum!  Surprised recently to have received oil & gas lease offer for J.C. Lane survey in Henderson County.  Looked at Mr. Liles's very useful courthouse direct.com discussion link and there seems to be a lot of recent activity.  Any current market info would be most welcome. Offer is for 3-yr primary and 1/5 royalty (with many other details, to be sure!).   Thanks very much.

I received a call today from James Turman, a landman representing BWEC Energy Consulting out of Tyler, regarding the possibility of leasing my mineral rights in Henderson Cty, near Chandler, TX. No specific offer was made yet as I am sending him some detail regarding additional rights owned in this area. Has anyone else had contact with these people and if so, what can you tell me about them and any offers received? Thanks!

I have 300 acres in the northern half of the J.S. Johnson (sometimes spelled Johnston) Survey, abstract 410.  I no longer live in Texas, so I'm unsure of what a fair market price would be per acre and royalty interest.  Any guidance is appreciated.

Hello Cathy,

This link will take you to a Texas map that shows the counties in Texas.


On the far right side of this map about 2 inches down from the top you will find Rusk County and Henderson County.   They are approximately 35 miles apart.   I live in Smith County in between Rusk County and Henderson County.   Henderson, Texas is in Rusk County.   Your minerals are in Rusk County and you are posting this information to 

the Henderson County Group.   Yep, it is confusing.   That's like Houston, Texas is not in Houston County and Tyler, Texas is not in Tyler County.  

Hang onto those minerals in Rusk County.   A lot of natural gas coming out of those Cotton Valley Sand wells nowdays and many more wells are going to be drilled when we start exporting Natural Gas to Southeast Asia.   Good luck with your minerals and I hope I haven't confused you too much.    It should be posted to the Rusk County Group.   Yes it is confusing as Henderson Texas is not in Henderson County.
