Wolfcamp Shales (note plural) are located in Ward County. Probably what they call the Wolfcamp A, B, C and D members

One normally does not see the different members in the Bone Spring and Wolfcamp broken out in completion reports

Interesting.  Thank you!

So maybe some of the Bone Spring wells at 9K that are sort of at the end of their production may have a new life?  Who knows?  That report looked positive.

Check out this Completion Report.   Scroll down to the bottom and check out the different formations.

Does Wolfcamp shale exist beneath Ward County?   I see that there are a couple of new wells at the 12000 - 15000 depth range, and the field is designated as Wolfcamp/Phantom.  I thought Ward county was less "shaley" than say, Culberson.  Anyone have any perspective on what is going on?

Richard, I've seen SWEPI pay $3k/acre in Section 182, Block 34 to extend the lease. You can also use this as an opportunity to add more favorable lease terms (increase the royalty, add pugh clause, add cost free royalty clause, etc..) in the event you were not happy with your first lease. If you need assistance with lease terms, you may want to consider reaching out to one of the forum sponsors that works with mineral owners: http://marketplace.mineralrightsforum.com/ad-category/minerals-mana...

Best of luck!

We have a lease with Anadarko E&P Onshore LLC and SWEPI LP and will expire on Nov 10. 2016.  Now Anadarko E&P Onshore LLC and SWEPI LP would like to extend the lease for $1,500 per net acre for 3 years.We got $2,000 per net acre on the existing lease.  This offers expires in 30 days.

Does this sound like a good offer or should I come back with a counter offer of $2,000 per net acre.

This is in the same area as Cathy Cinotto.

Got an offer today to renew a lease expiring the end of this month for $500/nma in Blk.34, Sec.74. Sure seems low. Any thoughts?

Family estate received offer to do 3-D seismic survey on land located NW of Barstow.  The rate offered is $20/acre.  Is this a competitive rate?

Comment by Lamont on November 21, 2015 at 6:17pm
Yes, very well could be gallons. OK, that would make more sense. Then that would mean something like $10 dollars a barrel. Thanks.
