I too hold mineral rights in 21-6N-4W. I have a current producing lease on a vertical well with Casillas that included a depth clause (WITH ENORMOUS GRATITUDE TO MARTHA BARNES!!!). Both Casillas and Ovintiv have applied to drill multi-unit horizontal well(s) and the hearing is set for this coming Tuesday. I have been contacted by Casillas to sign a new lease for the proposed horizontal well(s) but have not heard from Ovintiv Mid Continent. I have 4 questions:
- When and how can I find out the court’s determination between the 2 operators?
- If it’s Ovintiv, should I contact them to see if they’re interested in leasing my interests?
- At what point does “pooling” begin?
- If there is more than 1 horizontal well proposed, would I receive separate lease offers for each?
