In May a couple of wells were drilled by PetroHawk matching 2 of my mineral interests locations. No communication from PetroHawk. Do to the change of hands at PetroHawk, my normal contact is unavailable. Any help with this would be appreciated.
Thanks for your reply, the well location matches the Section, Township and Range of my mineral interests, is that what you mean by "tract" or is there something I am missing?
If you are trying to contact the land department in Shreveport you will probably have better luck getting information from the Tulsa office. If you will let me know what S-T-R you are in, I can direct you on who to contact.
Thanks for joining in Here is the information I have
My Mineral interests are here
Township 16 North, Range 10 West Sections 17, 18 & 20 (only part of the sections)
243159 HA RA SUWW;COTSWOLD 17-16-10 H 3608
243110 HA RA SUWW;COTSWOLD 20-16-10 H 3608
Any clarification of the information or contact information you can provide would be much appreciated.
My lease is with Petro Hawk? and I found the well information under Petro Hawk wells via SONRIS.... confused.
Cliff: In most sections, the company with the most lease rights (aka working interest) is named the operator by the Office of Conservation and drills the wells, so you could lease to one company and have a different company with more leasehold in the section drilling the well.
You can also have one company operating shallow rights in a section, and a different company operating wells drilled to deeper (such as Haynesville) objectives. This usually occurs when Pugh Clauses in existing leases cause the termination of lease rights below certain depths, and different companies come in and take new leases covering those deep depths.
Another circumstance in which this could happen is having a subsidiary or an operating company drilling a well on behalf of the working interest owner. As an example, WSF, Inc. is the majority working interest owner in many wells drilled by Petrohawk. Petrohawk purchased WSF a number of years ago, and still maintains them as a subsidiary company. Also, J-W Operating drills wells on behalf of working interest owner J-W Energy.
