Although most of you probably already do this, everyone in this group should also join the Reeves County group. It is the most active group on MRF and has the best information on what is going on in the area, in my opinion.

They are one of the best in the business. Extremely reputable company.

Just curious- any one have any dealings with Concho? I've heard from a great source that they are a good outfit. I'd welcome any comments--

Thanks, Y'all & Have a Good One!

Speaking of which, r w, anybody any more intimately familiar with that Luxe Energy company than Wolfcamp's addition about leaseholds gained from Endeavor in strategic places??

I am SO out of my element..... Jagged Peak has my lease at present and I like that company A LOT.

Good point Mr. Kennedy. Also, you need to make sure you have favorable lease language. If they are eager to top lease, they will be easier to approve your lease.

If I were to enter into a top lease I would only exchange the lease for a check. No draft.

Luxe appears to have picked up leasehold in neighboring Sections 73 and 86, along with the wells in those sections, from Endeavor. The Section 73 leasehold sets up your section nicely for a long lateral to be drilled across the section line and into your section, or vise versa, assuming they pickup some leasehold in 72 as well.

Who you lease to will not be as critical as the actual lease terms.

Happy to help :) Let me know if you need anything else. We also lease in Ward county and would be interested in making you an offer once the lease expires.
Comment by Linton Tomlin on May 31, 2016 at 6:38pm
Mark, thanks SO much. You have a gift for explaining things so a layman can understand. Yours is the best, easiest to understand, I have received all day. You'd think the letter that was sent with the lease would have explained a little more in depth what they were trying to accomplish. If it weren't Jagged Peak that has the current lease, I'd say that gamble on the part of the would-be top lessee might well be a good one. Decisions, decisions.....
