"Rock Man, thank you for your detailed reply. I am not knowledgeable enough to understand some of the Oil and Gas technical information, so thank you. You definitely know what is going on. I do plan on keeping the minerals, maybe…"
"bpm, thank you for your reply. Texas is more difficult than Louisiana, which is where I am from. In Louisiana land is identified by Township, Range and Sections, and SonRis Light identifies every well that has ever been drilled, by…"
"Shadow, BPM has made some good points about Bowie County plus put forth some good resources to check to compare Bowie Co to overall activity.
The attached PDF (from DrillingInfo) shows the RJ Cramer 922 survey around the center (note the NW to SE…"
"Shadow, excuse me for butting in, but I've got a couple of web sits for you to look at for doing a little research on Bowie county. One is the Baker Hughes Rig Count. Actually an app you can get, but it has a map of all the active rigs in…"
"Rock Man, It is almost 2,000 acres of Minerals located 14 miles Southwest of Boston, Texas being the R. J. Cramer Survey, A-922. My Dad purchased these Minerals 5-6-81, and it was under an Oil and Gas Lease by J.W. Kendrick. This…"
"Shadow, Bowie Co is an ultra slow area for O&G and always has been. The attached PDF shows ALL the historical production that has taken place in the county. Only 57 wells. And all clustered in the southern part of the county. The most recent…"
"Rock Man, this site seems appropriate to ask you about activity or lack of in Bowie County, Texas. There has not been much activity there in the past and none recently. We have large acreage of Mineral Rights in that county, so wondering…"
"I am pretty confident saying that in today's world, operators are taking best practices for drilling and stimulation from other areas / plays and seeing if they "work" in different areas.
The big issues for all these plays are the…"
"What Jay said. Same thing going on in Barnett - that area simply needs higher gas prices, or vastly lower D&C costs, or vastly more effective completions to compete on a ROR basis.
That said, I would love to see what would…"
"I do believe they were looking for "not in the mainstream" plays. The F'ville was just that, and they were hoping to replicate it. The LSBD was thought to carry on in that, but didn't work to their expectation. …"
"If they are still tying up leases in the Haynesville, that would absolutely be a reason. I would be surprised to find a lease here, that's worth having, that isn't HBP. I was told that one of the new companies has said their…"
"One of the issues for non drilling in the FV could be that a lot of the best acreage is HBP and operators don't have to drill to maintain their leases.
They can wait for higher prices down the road.
Your point as to contractor location and…"
"Thanks, and please don't go to any excessive trouble if you do look into it, I'm simply curious. Basically it is what it is. Could even be a simple numbers thing in that there are only 3 large players here, and maybe 2-3…"
"Without doing some intense research, I would guess that the economics of the FV do not compare with the HV right now. And a lot of this is tied to the gas pipeline agreements in each area, i.e. different pricing metrics. I will try to look at this…"
Hello! I hope the site is a place for you to learn, network and contribute. My name is Keith and I started the site in June of 2008 to open up lines of communication between landowners. Since then, we have grown to over 13,000 members.

There are a couple things you should check out. 1) Check out current discussions. 2) Join in on the County and Parish Groups. By joining a County or Parish, you are networking locally with people who share similar concerns.

As a member, should you ever be on the recieving end of crudeness, rudeness or spam, let me know. The site is a peered monitored site and we need your assistance.
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
