Hi All, everybody was so helpful last year when I leased out my mineral rights on less than an acre in Reeves County, so I’m back with another question.
Turns out that I own the surface rights, too, and have received a letter from ETP Crude wanting to put in three easements for $600. The offer says “paid proportionately,” which I have no idea what that means. They describe a temporary and a permanent easement. What sticks out to me is that this permanent easement shall be in perpetuity, so basically they are buying a portion of my land for a very small amount of money.
Is this the normal deal in these situations?
The tract number for one of them is RV-APBS-001.000 in Reeves County if that helps.
Thanks for any answers, Jo Ellen Gillmar
