Number of drilling locations continues to grow for Apache's Alpine High play - up to 1000 locations for dry gas, 3500 for wet gas and 500 for oil.

South of the Border, Down Mexico Way mex1 Devon who bought Mitchell Energy, is moving to develop similar stacked shale plays in basins in Mexico.   The map is incomplete, but the same formations in the

southern and western Delaware basin continue across the Rio Grand

river and there is tremendous potential reserves in Mexico.  Devon is betting the currency conversion rate between Mexico and the USA will make operations in Mexico cheaper by a factor of 20 and the profit margin increased by a factor of 10 while keeping the money in the western hemisphere, north American  shield. 

Development in Reeves county is paving the way for Devon and others to

develop the Mexico extension of the stacked shale play formations.

Hey, Wiley Fires! 

Absolutely love your name. Would love to learn more about it's origin.


Craig Ronhovde's Reeves County Discussion Group has been a favorite on The Mineral Rights Forum for some time now.  But sometimes, when people get off on one tangent or another, the lines of discussion get so convoluted and confusing that some peoples' requests for information or input get lost. 

I can't fix that, but I noticed your inquiry for information about what might be happening around your acreage in the SW/4 of Section 295, Block 13. 

Please see the link below. 

If you will notice, the Clayton Williams Energy, Inc (CWEI) Trust State 242 No. 1H, in Section 242, just to the West of your Section 295, came in at 781 BO / 613 MCF per day. 

Pretty impressive, but it also came in producing 1,944 Barrels of Water per Day... 

And, after only 3 months of production, it has dropped from a high of 506 BO / 640 MCF per day to 242 BO / 294 MCF per day in a single month. Still impressive, but all with no monthly reporting of how much Water per day. 


Others on The Forum might disagree, but you may be in an area where the wells might potentially "Water Out" within a matter of years or even only a number of months. 

If you have any offers that are fairly substantial, you may want to consider accepting one. 

"Cash Cow Out", so to speak... 

Just an observation or two -

JT, that looks like one of Clint Liles' maps from the RRC Website.

Comment by Lawrence Rayburn on October 2, 2017 at 6:10pm

I actually received my first Royalty check. It was for June and July. There are two producing wells. One is doing well. The other is really producing. The numbers are hard to grasp. The unit price was around $43 per. They provided a sheet showing all the numbers and the taxes paid for the two wells. My "Interest"  is very small. Less than 1 acre. I guess "Pooling" works very well. This whole "Oil" thing is brand new for me.

I believe someone here provided a link to this website that I screen grabbed this image from. I can now not find the link. Would anyone know it? THNX! Block13.png

Hi everyone.. I own the surface and 1/2 minerals in SW quarter of section 295 block 13.  Does anyone own any of the rest of it or know if anything is planned for that section..I am getting several offers to buy it.  It is not for sale but hoping someone knows something I don't.  I have 2 more years left on the current lease.

Louise Welch,
Wade Caldwell negotiated more money and language for the pipeline that was installed on our Block 58 sec 15 a year and a half ago . I believe it was more $$ than the U.T. lands rate schedule.
