I posted this in Upton County group, but it seems to be less active, any help is appreciated.

My uncle has minerals near McCamey. Is there any leasing in the area? If so, who is active and what is a reasonable bonus? He says he has been contacted, but has nothing in writing. He can't remember who contacted him.

Interesting comment re BHP from Richard below. I have a request. It was my folks and my intention to get to Pecos this year to change the mineral rights from my mother's name into the family trust. Recently my dad has begun to fail...so I know that some of you may be lawyers or know of resources that could help as we are in CA and Texas law is different. If you can help, please email me privately. THANK YOU!

BHP has notified us that they will be excersizing the 2yr option on our parcels in Blk 56, sec 29 & 30. Still waiting for the check, but looks like it will happen. Talked to a friend in the business yesterday - curious why they would take a 2yr option unless they intended to drill in the next 2 yrs. He said that one reason is that they can claim the reserves on their financials even if they don't drill. Otherwise, doesn't seem to make sense to me. So, I suppose the good news is that they believe there are enough reserves to make the lease bonus worth it.

Lynn, your explanation makes sense.  Guess I'm glad CWEI is still experimenting before they drill my minerals ;>)

Reply to Ann Whitchurch,

From what I have read about is that CWEI is a little ahead of everyone else in trying and developing new techniques.

They may have drilled the laterals to the take point and then pulverized the area about the take point before micro fracturing along the laterals.

Also, their techniques seem to involve a lot of good field work in assessing the actual and physical structure of the area they are drilling.

i had a minor in geology in college a million years ahem it would be very fun to talk to someone who actually is doing this work BUT I think we won't find out for a good while yet, because folks do have to hold some cards close to the chest to stay in the game.

But I really wish I could be a fly on the wall.

Lynn, I looked at 2013 production......the well production doubled after 7 months.  Supposed they didn't frack it for a few months?
