Was recently contacted by a landman, on behalf of an operator, to lease property in Dawson Co and have a few questions. What is the going royalty rate? What is the average term? What is the going ernest monies per net acre? If there is exisiting water on the land (pond) can we request it be left untouched? Can we request lessee drill a well and leave it user ready once the lease is up? Can we charge for water use? If so, how much? Any information would be greatly appreciated.
You'll find good information in the Dawson County Group. There are several landowners there discussing the latest and greatest developments. You can navigate to the group through the "Groups" then "County Groups" navigation above. You'll find a list for each state.
