After checking the GIS Map System I see several permitted locations by Cimarex about 6 miles to the North and Northeast of your minerals. Also numerous producing wells in that vicinity.   To the South of your minerals I see several horizontal gas wells drilled by Petro-Hunt, LLC and are being operated by COG Operating.   I see no activity now or in the past in your area by Cimarex.   There could be some leasing in your area that I am not aware of.

Any word on Cimarex in Reeves county?  We have an interest in AB 3460

BLK 58  SEC 19  PSLW/4

Any insight would be appreciated


Comment by John Graves yesterday

Would just like to say, never sign a three lease with a two year option. What you would be signing is in reality a five year lease. Keep it at three years.

Mike Brewer, this is Leslie Hancock, and I have been trying to get in touch with you about this offer we received from Mitchell Pet.
I sent you a friend request on this forum so we can talk. I also sent you an email to the address I had for you M11......@gmail.com. Is that still your email address?
Comment by Kerry on Thursday
I think this may be of some interest
Deals with production values over the few years.

Where are your minerals?  This is an agent representing an oil company.  Do not accept less than 25% royalty as that is standard in Reeves County.  If you agree to option, ask for at least double bonus to cover increases in future rates.

Have an offer from Mitchell Petroleum,Land Services, INC....Fort Worth, TX for Oil and GAs lease, $1000 per acres with 20% royalty for 3 yr lease with 2 year lease extention....does anyone have any experience or knowledge about this company? Because verbally they offered 25% and in writing offered 20%

If the pipeline is related to a well on the mineral classified tract, then the State receives 1/2 of the ROW payment.  You can think of this as quid pro quo for getting 1/2 of royaltues.  If the pipeline is unrelated, then you get 100%.   Same for other payments such as well pad damages.  If in doubt, call Drew Reid at GLO.

Comment by Kenneth L. Haag on September 11, 2016 at 8:59am
Ignore my question on "would the State get 1/2 of a pipeline easement" we own the surface so the State would not. They get 1/2 of minerals since this is mineral classified land
Comment by Kenneth L. Haag on September 10, 2016 at 11:51pm

so our mineral classified land would fall under the base rates for pipelines under NON-university, correct? We lease under the Relinquishment Act and the State gets 1/2.  Would the State get 1/2 with a pipeline easement contract?
