Upshur County, TX - Oil & Gas Discussion archives

Oil & gas discussion group for those interested in Upshur County, TX. Share your experience regarding lease bonus, royalty rates, drilling activity, and oil & gas news.

They have approached me with an offer to lease at $100/acre and an 8th royalty in Marion County. I know that this is a low offer even in the current market, but there hasn't been too much activity before now. Is this a middle/holding company or a legitimate entity? And should I take this offer seriously?

Has anyone ever heard of Petro Shore?

I'd like to find out more about BRANTA PRODUCTION COMPANY LLC, out of Houston, Texas. Anybody else have a lease agreement with them?

Does anyone have any information on leasing activity north of Longview, Texas?

Are there other members contacted in May 2013 by Colt for leasing in Upshur County's Calvin Anderson Survey? It is about 20 miles north of Longview Texas on Hwy 155. I cannot find that there is much gas activity in that area now.
