I leased to BHP and from what I can gather a well is operating and had had production that I can track through Feb16. Who do I contact to inquire on royalties. It looks like it is a gas well but it…Continue

We have a small mineral interest in section 59, BL 13 A-473 in Reeves County. We have been offered a 3/2 lease for $800 an acre and 1/5 royalty. Is this a fair price for this area? Also, I don't live…Continue

Buzz & Tennisdaze,
Yes the two wells are Barbee 72-1 and McAfee C17-21. We just have minerals in Sec 21 Blk C17. I knew that Mcafee was part of the property acquired by Silverback and soon after their acquisition sent us a Division Order making the switch from BHP to Silverback.. To date the well has not been abandoned and they requested an extension from RRC.
There has been a lot of confusion starting with Keystone who has the lease when Petrohawk drilled the well, then BHP, and now Silverback.
I will.be calling Siverback and then Keystone to determine the status of the well as well as the lease.

We have advertised on the market place site and are receiving a lot of interest.

No problem. That is a good area to own minerals. I suspect you shouldn't have any issues getting it leased. One of the forum sponsors could probably help you find some interested lessees if you aren't already being contacted by folks to lease the properties.

Thanks Wolfcamp.  That's what we suspected.

I am not seeing any active wells on Sections 30 & 32, Block 56, T3.

Here is a map from the Railroad Commission: 

Comment by Duncan Fraiser on Monday

Does anyone have any info of producing wells on section 30 and 32, block 56, T-3, T&P RR, Reeves county?  My family and I have a lease with Cimarex that expires this month and are being told that there are producing wells on the property.  We have not been informed of any wells.  They were supposedly drilled on December, 2015.

Comment by Buzz Van Meter on Monday

Donny – I suspect you are referencing these two (2) wells:

BARBEE 72-1 #1H

MCAFEE C17-21 #1H

If so, BHP assigned them to Silverback Exploration, LLC, effective July 1, 2014.  (FYI, I’m reading from the Assignment, Bill of Sale and Conveyance.)

If I'm not mistaken, the McAfee well was never completed.  Later -- Buzz

I found courthousedirect.com to be a good resource to see if leases have been assigned. Creating an account doesn't cost anything and you can do a search to find the documents. Downloading the documents is a nominal cost.

Comment by Mike on Monday

BHP likely does not own those wells anymore. Silverback Operating is probably the current operator and owner of the lease. 

Comment by TennisDaze on Sunday

Donny, It all depends on your lease.  Does it cover acreage in both wells or only in a shut - in well?  Do you have language for severance so producing minerals only hold assigned acreage?   Does lease provide that any production holds all minerals?  If so and you are receiving royalties on first well, then you will not necessarily be due any shut-in payment for second well.  It all depends on the language in your lease and the interaction of the various clauses.  You should email BHP and ask about the status of the 2nd well and any plans for that acreage.  Or ask if the lease acreage has expired and if so can you get a release filed.   BHP can help explain the lease terms to you.
