Anyone had any dealings or contact with Atlas Permian Energy Services regarding their Utility Scale Water Pipeline System in Reeves, Loving, Ward etc?

Comment by MARIAN E TIBBITS on Friday

Thank You TennisDaze I appreciate your feed back.  You said 18 months is to long, what time limit would you suggest?

Comment by TennisDaze on Thursday

These are suggestions and not necessarily what you may want to do or may not be the total list.  Read carefully to be sure you understand what it says. Consider changing assigns or assignees to agents.  Limit to Reeves County unless you have surface in the other counties.  You should delete reference to leased property unless you actually have authority to give permission.  Delete reference to helicopters as you would never want that kind of damage.  Add sentence that the permit is limited to a single 3-D geophysical survey.  Add sentence that more payment is due for survey of any surface not listed on Schedule A.  18 months is too long.  Wait to sign when the total process is maybe 6 months long.  Do you have full legal authority to grant access?  Maybe not if you are not the sole owner.  So you might limit to legal authority only for the net surface interest that you own.

Should we have them to eliminate part of the first sentence?

Appreciate any information on Silverback Admiral 4-47-48 (API 35261).  Only thing found through RRC is spudded 6/28/16 and BHL survey completed 8/4/16. 

Comment by TennisDaze on October 16, 2016 at 9:22am

That is for both.  You can change the permit form.  Add a specific time limit with an end date.  Add that permit is limited to a single seismic shoot by the specified company and cannot be assigned to another company.  Make sure that it says that seismic company is liable for any and all damages associated with all related operations, whether caused by the seismic company or its agents.  Limit the agreement to only the list of specified land and not to include any other land.  Add a signature line for seismic company.

thanks for the response TennisDaze and Thomas Beauchamp.

TennisDaze: $20 per acre for damages, does that also include the payment for the seismic work also. Or the $20 is for both?

Thomas, company said they were doing the work on Reeves, Loving and Ward. Didn't specify the block or section. Hope that helps.


Comment by TennisDaze on October 15, 2016 at 7:20pm
$20 per acre for surface damages is standard at this time.
Comment by Thomas Beauchamp on October 15, 2016 at 3:04pm

Louise, I got an offer to do seismic work on our land too, so would like to find out the same thing.  Our offer was for $20 per acre on Blk. C-20, Sec. 4 PSL.  Is yours the same section?

Comment by Louise Welch on October 15, 2016 at 1:47pm

Does anyone know the going rate for 3-D seismic and geophysical survey per acre? Have been contacted by a company for permission. Also, what about damages to the acreages? If anyone has information in this matter I sure would appreciate any and all help. I am clueless...thanks in advance...
