Comment by Mitch Swank yesterday

Can anyone instruct me as to how I can figure out if I won mineral rights to my property. On the deed it just states "subject to any mineral rights conveyances" etc! Although I have clear title/deed to the property, the mineral rights issue seems to be the 800Lb gorilla in the room! Any help would be greatly appreciated.

While I'm thinking about it, the invaluable RRC GIS map now has Abstract Numbers displayed in each section... a recently-added feature to this work in progress.  Later -- Buzz


Comment by Buzz Van Meter yesterday

Tom – if you look real close, the GLO map shows townships... depending on zoom degree:


In Reeves townships are numbered 1-10 with Number One being North Reeves and Number 10 extreme South Reeves.  Later – Buzz

PS – sometimes you need to also know the township to zero-in on the exact section... sometimes not.

You can get a 1945 Reeves County map with that info from Midland Map Company.
Comment by Tom Parker yesterday

Does anyone understand the township system? Or know of a map that shows the townships?  I have been searching the real property records for Reeves and some of the results appear to show more than one township within the same block?  I thought the sizes went (from largest to smallest) Survey-Township-Block-Section?  Any insight would be much appreciated!

Comment by Wade Caldwell yesterday
Other than monitoring permitting activity on the RRC site, If you are a NARO member, they had a deal with drillinginfo.com where members could get a free subscription for one county. You could set that as Reeves and set an Area of Interest, which would send you an email alert anytime something happened in your area of interest.

Information concerning Oil and Gas Leases and Wade Caldwell

Comment by Will S. Williams yesterday

Mitch and Marian too. You both might want to consider contacting Wade Caldwell, member on this site.  He is very knowlebeable of the area, the current lease particulars. He assisted me with finalizing my lease back in April with very satisfactory results. Best of luck.

Comment by Marian Gage yesterday

I would like to ask again...We have just finalized a 2yr extension with BHP (Block 4 Section 61 389-33400 NW Pecos) unfortunately I don't see any evidence of a new well permit (the old one expired July 2013). I don't see any new one on the Railroad site, so are there any other options to track to see if BHP is taking any action to get a new permit ( would take as a sign that they are serious)??? Thanks

Comment by Mike E on Thursday


Please send me a legal description of your property. Should it fall within our buy area, I can put you in touch with the appropriate landman to discuss terms. 

In regards to your question, Bonus Rates  vary greatly, depending on where the acreage is located. I can give you a general idea of the going rate once you have sent the legal description. 

You can email me at: MRElender@gmail.com
