Finding out if neighboring fracing is pulling from sections I have mineral rights to


I have several sections in Ozona. I have had lease offers for a group of sections a couple of years ago but was told by the title company offering the lease that they could not pursue the lease due to a probate that was not finalized. I am a little suspicious Oil and Gas is being taken and I am not getting any royalty payments. I have full mineral rights, meaning i=it is not a NPRI. How can I find out if the sections are being worked or frac’d?


Go on the RRC gis viewer and look at the sections to see any activity on your sections or for adjacent activity. Keep in mind that the RRC sets minimum offset distances for wells, varying depending on the field and formation. Hopefully the probate is final so you can lease your minerals.
