Hi All, I'm new to this site and had some questions

Hi, I'm new to this site and have some questions. I own a 40 acres lot in Culberson County located in Block 53 Section 8 (Lot 8, see attached file) and don't know about the Oil / Gas drilling going on in that area. How do I get information about that. I would appreciate your help, thanks.

Regards, Pete

You need to check your deed, as well as the related deed history of your seller, to see whether you bought only surface or whether your have any minerals. The Carto Consultants were hired by a number of surface owners to plat lots for sale. If you notice on page 2, there is a statement that the plat was not surveyed and so the exact location is not known. They simply divided the estimated acreage into lots and numbered them. If you only own surface, then you will not be entitled to royalties, but will get damages for any well pad, pipeline, electric lines, roads, etc.

Thank you, I appreciate your help, will review my Deed.
