I have 17.779 undivided acres in 4 different sections (4,5,8 & 9) which are depicted (on NDIC GIS Map Server) with 3 different spacing units (1280 Acre ea.) T153, R102
Example: Sections 4 & 9 = spacing unit
Sections 5 & 6 = spacing unit (to be drilled)
Sections 8 & 17 = spacing unit
If they drill on section #6 (incls my #5 in spacing unit) how does this affect the other spacing units and my undivided interest in the other two locations?
-Does it tie them all up?
-What is recommended to protect my interests in keeping them separate?
-Would it be better to have 3 separate leases to keep each spacing unit separate?
If so, how do you apply the ratio of 17.779 acres to each of 4 different sections?
