The J Patterson survey is approximately 3-4 miles north of Devon's new Kardell well in San Augustine County. The Kardell well is about 1 mile east of San Augustine town. The Patterson Survey is almost up to the Shelby/San Augustine county lines.
St Mary is an Oil and Gas company that has been in the area almost as long as the Haynesville Shale. [just kidding no need to reply St Mary people]
Anyway, St Mary, Crimson, Southwestern oil and gas companies have been around a while and have obtained leases for minimal bonus amounts with small royalty percentages. The fact that St Mary has been here as long as the shale makes it very difficult for them to pay any decent bonus amounts. Regardless, we all wish them well in the Patterson Survey because they are in MOTHERLOAD country and we know they are going to add a fabulous well to the MOTHERLOAD list of winners!!!
Thanks, but I am still confused. There are 2 Patterson surveys, the one I am interested in is John Patterson survey in northwest San Augustine (west of 96) right on the Nac /SA county line. I see on the TRRC GIS map viewer that there is a well on that survey I was wondering if anyone knows whos' well it is?
I donot know anything about the Patterson survey on the Nac/Sa county line. Someone on this website will see your question and respond. You may want to go through the Texas Railroad Commission web site after you find out which operator has permited the well. Hopefully someone will know which well you have questions regarding and respond.
On the Patterson survey I have A-218 Lot 4. What company is SWN ? In NAC we have 2 tracts in A-60, one that we have a lease on with Samson (Robert & Thomas are my brothers) and the other one G&H Assoc. wants to lease with us but we are doing more homework this time around. We didn't do our research with the Patterson, Garrett, Shofner, and Brown like we should have (with STO&G).
If it were me I would hold out for the major players drilling in the trend. I do not know who Southeast Oil and Gas is. They have leased "spec" acreage with the hopes of selling to one of the big guys..did you find out who they are?
They are a very small company I think we are one of their first leasors and yes we believe that they are gonna sell our leases. The guy that we dealt with was/is not very friendly at all kinda a "Bully". Hind sight is 20/20, like I said we didn't do our homework, so all we can do now is make sure we know who we are dealing with in the future. Finding this board was great! Thanks.
As exciting as this is, we know that we have a responsibility to do this thing correctly. After all, we want the farm to remain a place where the family can gather for another 80 years and beyond. This site was born out of these desires. Before we started this site, googling "shale' brought up little information. Certainly nothing that was useful as we negotiated a lease. Read More
