Overall, 2015 was a bust for the oil and gas industry. It has forced U.S. drillers and operators to cut down capital budgets by the billions. Law firm Haynes and Boone LLP on Dec. 4 released its “Oil…Continue

Apache has drilled and completed an Eagle Ford horizontal in A-235. Completion data included below. Produced over 22,700 BO & 45 MMCF gas in March (initial production month / probably partial month of production).

Laredo is also drilling EF horizontals near the Texas Speedway.

You can use the Tx RRC GIS mapping site (in the link below) to find any survey and then check out industry activity.

Does anyone know of any drilling activity in the A-120, A-235, A-245, Abstract 206, the R. Ferguson Survey, the D. Wickson Survey, Pendelton Rector Survey in Brazos County, thanks!

Yes, Brazos is very active on leasing.

With respect to A-35 Survey in Brazos County, I wonder if you minerals are already in a production unit but you are not yet leased.

Some proven and active production here should dictate a good price / bonus for your acreage plus a good royalty (e.g. 25%)

Re: Survey A-35 in Brazos County

Did a quick search - very active area for recent Eagle Ford drilling by Halcon. Making over 20,000 BO per month for the survey.

Attached is map showing wells and then list of producing wells for this survey. Numbers on map match the last 5 numbers in the API designation.

Own mineral rights  on 51.72 acres of land part of the W.S. Martin Survey, A-35 Brazos County, TX.  Would like to know if there is any activity of any kind or if there will be in the future.

  I am a Forum (and complete O&G) newbie because I discovered only recently that long-deceased father left me 50-pc stand-alone mineral rights (no surface rights or ownership) on 100 acres in NW Walker County.  It was the approach of a landman in Feb. that alerted me to this, though his interest panned out (probably because his client opted for other tract of land, but what do I know?). I've since secured the certified rights.

If anyone could shed light here, I have Just two (probably breathtakingly naive) questions:

 1) Do mineral rights alone matter if the surface owner doesn't go along with drilling on his property?  Can the two parties work independently of one another or do they have to move in tandem vis-a-vis the O&G companies?

  2) How does one effectively advertise/make known one's available mineral rights for leasing/exploration?

   Many thanks in advance to whomever can lighten my ignorance here.

Thanks Robert!

To those interested, production from my well is following (almost exactly) the curve "original design" in the attachment.

Hope this helps anyone that follows this discussion. It looks to be a great planning tool.

In EOG's most recent earnings call they said that there were 6,000 drilling locations remaining on their EFS acreage and that each of those are pegged on a map, not derived from dividing total leasehold acres by 40, 80, etc.
