My lease states:
“Lessee agrees that is a well or wells producing oil and/or gas in paying quantities should be completed on adjacent lands within 467 feet of the leased premises and deemed to be draining the leased premises, Lessee shall drill such offset wells as a reasonably prudent operator would drill under the same or similar circumstances.”
I just discovered that there is a new permit, approved on 10/02/2019, from Tall City Operations III LLC to drill the Conger 185-184 Unit D 24H just to the west of the lease line. According to the RRC GIS measurement, this well will be 396 feet from the lease line. Perhaps the RRC’s GIS measurements aren’t precise? Or maybe the operator needs to drill a well close to our side of the lease line?
