Jefferson County, Tx

My family has an oil and gas lease with Samson Lone Star on property located between Fannett and Port Arthur TX located off FM 365. We live out of state and wanted any information on drilling activity in that area.

Can you give us a better legal description fo your property? What survey, abstract is it in? How many acres?

Thank you for replying! Our lease is for 32.666 acres of 392 acres situated in the Manuel Chireno League Abstract No.10 and the Stephen Eaton Survey, Abstract No. 21. The legal description is a metes and bounds description recorded in Jefferson County Volume 316 page 187. The lease term is for three years beginning 22 July, 2009 1/4 Royalty and $300 Net Mineral Acre Bonus. We negotiated the lease through J. Mark Smith and Associates but have not been able to get an update on any activity.

I looked on the RRC GIS map viewer and can only see dry holes in the area. Your best bet is to keep trying to get information from Samson.

Thank you for the information. The property was drilled years ago with unsatisfactory results. Samson leased the property after extensive 3D seismic energy testing.
