My wifes family lease is in DeWitt County abstract 447. Does anyone know anything about what's going on out there?
There is a group specifically for DeWitt County. You might want to try posting in it. Also, have you checked the railroad commission website query for wells submitted/approved (see link below)? You can run this yourself with any county or date range.
There is also a video on the Home page of this site which shows you how to navigate the RRC website.
