I was wondering if anyone has been contacted concerning this well. I'm trying to figure out what I can expect next and in what kind of timeframe.

Statewide rule of 640 acres + 10% (704 acres) was followed in the early years of the HA. That went out the window in 2010 or so and then they later came up with a formula for adding additional acreage based on lateral length.

Skip, This discussion should inform you on how the allocation/proration unit came into being in TX. I have to take the dogs to the vet this morning but when I get back I will find the rules for additional acreage in a unit based on proposed lateral length. They can run up to ~1200 acres, if I recall correctly.

There are three types of units over here that regulators, drillers and lawyers have to know about: Lease Unit, Drilling Unit and Proration Unit. Lessors are usually informed about only the Lease Unit. I would advise everyone to read the discussion I linked to in order to understand a bit about the other two types of units addressed in the regulations.

Thanks, Julie.  Members you only find this level of information on GoHaynesvilleShale.  Have you made a donation to the site lately?

We'd all hate to see Keith and Anna sell GHS to Drillinginfo!  Right?

Took me a while to find it.

I agree, wholeheartedly!  I donated not too long ago and tried to figure out how much to give by guessing at how much it saved me from having to go to an O&G attorney every time I had a question, and then give myself a little discount.

Wow! I want to thank you all for your responses. I learned quite a bit this morning.
