Double K Drilling acquires Desta Drilling from Noble Energy
Double K Drilling of Jacksboro has acquired Desta Drilling from Houston-based Noble Energy. The Midland Reporter Telegram said the acquisition quadrupled the fleet of Double K to 20 rigs by adding Desta’s 15 rigs. Kirk Wade, vice president at Double K, said the acquisition also included Desta’s building, shop, 28 acres of land, and equipment such as pumps, drill pipe and blowout preventers. (Read more...)
I noticed Clayton Williams kept a few of those Chinese shallow drilling
rigs because he has one now drilling on the south side of Interstate 10
west of Fort Stockton where he owns the land around Belden prison farm. He owns that whole Belden valley with the pecan orchards and farms.
Haven't seen where he is going to continue drilling under a new company name in Reeves county yet....but I know he has landmen
scouting in Culberson county.

Does anyone know the going rate for water for the oil companies? I am interested in having a water well drilled but don't know what the rate per barrel is at this time. I would appreciate all assistance in this matter. Needing all the help I can get.



Comment by M A Smith on Monday

Robert Sullivan -- We have 1200 nma unleased in Block 59 about 3 miles west-southwest of your tract in Block 58.  Which company leased your acreage.  And, if you don't mind, for how much per nma. 

Comment by Michael T. Vinson on Monday

Thank you. I will certainly dig into what they have. Ron “Sickem” Nickum- I did some land work for him several years ago when I lived in the panhandle.
Thanks again.

Mike,  Allocation wells is a very hot topic at legal seminars as everyone agrees that there is no definitive law on this subject.  John McFarland at Graves Daugherty law firm has spoken against allocation wells on the panels at the seminars.  There is a good article by Ronald Nickum taking the position against allocation wells.  Here is a link to John McFarland's lawyer blog on this topic.


Comment by TennisDaze on Monday

You need to post all of the related terms in you lease to get feedback.  Be careful that there may be more than one related paragraph.  The words net proceeds would be after all kinds of costs.  The question of market value depends on the other language in the sentence and paragraph.  Is there any difference between the wording related to gas vs oil?  Market value will not be purely WTI as there are other factors.  Does the lease specify where the market value is determined - at the wellhead or at the point of sale by the operator or point of sale be an affiliate?

Comment by John Harris on Monday

Does anyone know ??..... my lease says that I am to be paid 25% of the net proceeds of the sale or the market value thereof which ever is higher, all free of all cost and expenses, 

does that mean I am to be paid the posted WTI price or the discounted price the oil co. says the pipeline pays them.  there seems to be quite a difference.
