To all mineral rights owners in Ward County.  Our family came into ownership of a small portion of MR.  We were not sure how to proceed when approached by a landman. We engaged the services of Wade Caldwell who is an attorney and posts here from time to time.  Our family was very happy with his representation and we secured a lease we are pleased with....FYI.

RoW update for Ward County.

In late December of 2012 we entered into an ROW agreement with Enterprice Crude Pipeline LLC. for the Trinity Phase 2, Talladega to Mivida gathering line.   The intial offer was $50.00 per rod

with a final offer of $150.00 per rod, plus we asked for attorneys fees which kicked it to $250.00 per rod.   The easement had to run in/with a current easement on the property for a one 16 inche pipeline.

I outline this ROW in the ROW Group for the MRF so find the group and you will see more detail.  We used an attorney and the agreement took

6 months to complete.

I have been told by KEW that their offer of $900/nma primary term, 22.5% royalty interest, 3 year lease, two year extension@$1,000, is reasonable for Blk.34, Sec.74, and that no one is getting $2,200 in that area. I have had people on this forum tell me otherwise but not mention any company names. Does anyone have anything to add to this? Am I wrong? Any info is greatly appreciated.

Held by production means there is a producing well that is holding the lease for the lessee.

Comment by roy slack on December 3, 2012 at 1:36pm

do top leases look and read the same as original leases, and what does it mean to be held in production

Comment by Wade Caldwell on December 1, 2012 at 11:02am
They should know, unless they are offering a top lease, which means they will lease if your existing lease expires. If your existing lease is held by production, you should check to see if maybe the deep rights have been freed up and can be leased.

Leases are recorded in Ward County at the county seat in Monahans, TX.  See the  county recorder for information and the recording books which you can view.

If there a lease with a oil or gas company and it is recorded the landman of the second company should have discovered this in his research.  You can not enter into a new lease if there is a current lease with an oil and gas company on your 20 acres, unless it has expired.  You need to review your current lease for details.  It may have expired.


Comment by roy slack on November 29, 2012 at 1:53pm

Are all completed leases recorded in Ward County? What do you do when you are offered a lease on 20 acres which has already been leased, don't the lessees know this information already?
