Wolfberry Play - Permian Basin


Wolfberry Play - Permian Basin

The Wolfberry is a combination play of Wolfcamp Shale (interbedded shale and sandstone) and Spraberry Sandstone with shale/mudstone and limestone intervals.  Since other plays (formation specific) have been more prominent both above and below the Wolfberry - the Wolfberry Play is used to describe the Play in total (all potential and known producing formations).

Most of Gaines County activity to tied to shallow San Andre drilling and development. Check Tx RRC for the latest activity and updates on new wells and completion

Any knowledge of activity, say around Gaines Co, at this time?

Mr. Rogers you need to go under market place on the forum to lease your minerals instead of in the groups.

Good Morning,

we have 240 acres in DAWSON county to lease, it is block 35 section 2 T4N, there are four of us, we are not interested in selling only leasing. if you have any questions please e-mail me on here or at marc.rogers33@yahoo.com thank you have a happy new year!

From those directions, that is a good and active area. Companies like XTO and RSP Permian are actively drilling there as are RP Petroleum. I believe that Energen is also active in the area and Pioneer and Crownquest are drilling just north of the area you describe.

These are all horizontal drilling operations and active - even in today's lower price environment. So the operators' internal economics must be pretty good

Our acreage is located 10 miles straight west of Garden City and 4 miles south of Dewey Lake.  Thanks, Rock Man.

As to your Glasscock County acreage, not all areas are created equal due to the variations in the subsurface geology.  This will definitely impact any lease offers you may receive. Where are your minerals located (e.g. with respect to Garden City)?

You might want to join the Glasscock County Group.   Go to the top of the Main page and click on Groups and then click on Counties and go from there.

I recently learned my siblings and I own 480 acres in Permian Basin, Glasscock County.  We are being contacted by leasers.  Do we let them set it all up, cost?  What's a reasonable valuation?  My mom owned it, now deceased.  We do not know if the previous lease ever drilled.  Thanks in advance for any help you can give.

Sub 40 oil will slow down drilling even more in the Permian and other plays. As always, it will come down to economics and ROI as well as identifying and exploiting the "sweet spots" in the various benches (since the O&G prospectivity is far from uniform across the basin)
