Wade ~ thanks, I'll check it out

its the ONCOR power line~ so yes it would be eminent domain situation ~  

Comment by Wade Caldwell on Sunday
John- Search UT Lands Surface Damage Schedule and use these figures as a floor. You may want to start at multiples higher depending on your circumstances. Whether they are claiming eminent domain rights also impacts what you can get. Once you look at the damage schedule you will see the type of questions you need to ask regarding width of easement, size of line, etc. Also, try to get a term easement instead of indefinite and limit the easement to what they are building, not a bunch of expansion opportunities with no additional compensation.

These are just a few of the issues. Use the Search feature in the upper right corner and scroll through the blog articles for more detailed articles.

Sorry for the long reply, but I am not sure which project you are discussing or the details of it.

I was advised to ask $3,500 per nma/25% royalty for our acres in BLK C-18/Section 5.

I thought it was in response to Michael Muldrow, actually. It is good FYI info, regardless.

Linton, my post was not in response to Denver's post.  It was meant to be a fyi for anyone in the area of C-7, 26

Neither of those blocks are mine, Buzz. I was just trying to make the point that they are quite a ways from each other. I do have a small interest in C-8, SEC 26 I've been trying to lease for years with no offers. Thanks. Linton

Linton -- your BLK C-9 SEC 21 is 12.1 miles WNW of BLK C-7 SEC 26. Later -- Buzz
Comment by Linton Tomlin on August 18, 2015 at 11:37pm
Denver, I would read through these posts, but to me it sounds a lot better than some of the other offers for that particular area. Of course it also depends on the other terms of the deal, i.e., the length of the lease, whether it's just a three-year primary with no extension, and if they are going to give you 25 percent royalty. Just my opinion, and that ain't worth much! Linton

Hi all,

I am new to this since inheriting the mineral rights from my parents. I have interests in Block C-9/21 and Block C-9/19. They are offering $2,000 per net mineral acre.  Do you think this is a good deal?
