If I wanted to hire a landman familiar with Lea County how would I go about  it?

None yet. Eddy Co will go online Dec 2017. Lea hasn't announced doing that.

Not to my knowledge that goes back that far.  There are a few that go back to the mid-1990's.  But I would love to be wrong!

The US Bankruptcy Court ordered approving the sale of substantially all of the assets of Paladin Energy Corporation on July 24, 2017. The Court has authorized the debtor to sell substantially all of the assets to POGO Resources, LLC for a purchase price of $9 million plus assumption of assumed liabilities.
