My family has owned a decent amount of acreage out in Reeves and Culberson since the mid 30's to early 40's. We've drilled a bit out there, gotten others to drill and in 2008 began to experience the…Continue

Does anyone know what the going rate is for a 3d seismic survey ~ the state says $15 per acre min. I have been offered $20  for an 18 mo. permit? 

we already have a 3 yr. lease in place.

Thanks, Mike and Dusty for the research. I never would have guessed the building was for that!

For the Air Force it was the "Pecos Electronic Scoring Site," a "Realistic Training Initiative to train Air Force B-1 and B-52 crews to bomb and evade missile sites." http://mapcarta.com/26880186

Tax records say the building you spotted in T&P Blk 54 has been there, in the middle of nowhere, since 2002.  Since the City of Pecos bought it from the US Air Force in 2012 it's been called the "City Training Facility" and the improvements there are on the tax rolls for $2.7 million.  

No clue what kind of training the City is doing there but if you're real curious I guess you can ask them.

Tom, looks logistical. Looks like a concrete ramp around the rear of the structure with what may be light poles to illuminate whatever may take place there. I'm thinking loading and unloading.

This might be old news for those keeping diligent track of Clint's much-appreciated list of permits.  But for folks with land in T&P Blks 55/54 T7 area, some good news . . . Panther Exploration permitted on 11-3-16, Oliver 13-24 1H.  (API 38935497.)  Also, back on 3-21-16, Boone 18 1H.  (API 38935179.)  Maybe the fairway is moving westward, after all!

While researching oil well locations, I came across this building (see attached pic).  Anyone have an idea of what it is?!  It's literally in the middle of nowhere. (T&P Blk 54 T7  Sec 12 . . . way south of Toyah.  Looks permanent and pretty expensive.  You can tell the building has even striped parking spaces and light poles! No agriculture in the immediate area, so I don't think it's for that.  There's a 2015 permitted well location right next to it from Panther Exploration and a number of producing gas wells to the building's west.  If you copy and paste into Google Maps the coordinates "31.217233, -103.659878", it'll take you right there.  Any ideas?

Yes. Much improved but it still needs an addendum.
