Whoever is managing your surface should have the answer to the surface damage question, or is in the probate/title paperwork for your surface rights. For minerals do you have the Block, Survey, Section, abstract information? Also on your checks you will see an API number and for Tom Green county in Texas it starts with 42-451-##### and Sutton I think is 42-435-#####. With that you can check the Texas Railroad Commission and find the production totals for those wells.


Do you have a executor for the mineral rights for setting up leases. They would have your information as well. You need this for Steven or others to help you out. I just look for oil and gas before the leasing and then I use land men or operator to secure the lease. It looks like it is time for a family reunion to settle things cleanly.

I have recently become involved in the developments in North West Tom Green County, and was wondering if anyone here is familiar with developments in the area. It seems that it is just south of some holdings of Devon's and Oxy but I am interested in acquiring more information.

Anyone know current rate for water sales to Oil Company in Tom Green County?

I have some familiarity with NW Tom Green activity. I sent you a friend request, if there is anything I can help you with.....let me know.


Can anyone recommend a Land Man for Coke County?


My brothers and I own about a quarter of the minerals on a 280 acre tract in Abstract 1965. We have owned this since 2001 and looks like there are or have been a number of wells within several miles of this location.

Looking for activity in the county.


We have mineral interest on a property in Tom Green county that we have owned for generations(minerals only not the land). The property had two wells that were plugged in early 90s. Would a company come back in that area redrill after that long? Since there were producing wells in the past.

If you own minerals in Texas or New Mexico, consider attending the NARO – Texas convention in San Antonio July 18-20, 2018. They have a great agenda, good speakers, and the cost is reasonable. This year also includes a special session for New Mexico mineral owners. The current agenda draft is attached, and a link to their signup and information page is
