Martin County, TX Oil & Gas Discussion archives

I received an offer to lease today for a small interest I have in Martin County. The bonus was $1000/acre and 20% on a producer’s 88. Anybody have an idea of what the market is these days?

Camille, that offer is a bit low. 25% should be obtainable, along with a significantly higher bonus. You may want to reach out to the forum sponsors to see what they're seeing in your area of Martin County.

Also, it is likely there are a number of amendments you'll want to make to the lease form to make it more favorable for you.

Thanks, Wolfcamp Shale.

RSP Permian buys Silver Hill: impacts Loving and Winkler counties

What is the going bonus for a three year lease in Section 31, Block 34, T3N in survey T&P Railroad Co. a/k/a Abstract 28? I have a client whose total family interest is 75 net mineral acres that is currently unleased.

I continue to receive a large number of unsolicited offers for my interest in Martin County. One guy called me and said they were just packaging and would hold until they had a decent amount and then sell to someone else.

I told him that I had received 60 unsolicited offers on one tract in the past two years. He asked if I would sell if they could beat the high offer.

Is the excitement county wide or tract specific?

It's really basin-wide with many calling the Permian land rush Permania. Much of Martin County is in the "core" of the Midland sub-basin of the larger Permian Basin. Chances are that all 60 unsolicited offers are under market right now.

We are planning to sign a lease in the very near future. I read a post on here awhile back on terms a lessor should include in a lease, but I cannot find it now. Can anyone help us with this? Thank you.
