Please do not let this mornings tirade affect you in the least. You did nothing wrong nor did you cause the thread to go asunder. You owe nobody an apology.Actually I would like to apologize to you for what happened.It was childish and uncalled for.Pros should have a little tougher chin in my opinion. At least on this site they better. Have a good one.
I know that this will not be much help for you but I believe that Section 21 may be involved in the old lease that Kassi is held by. You can go to Kassi's page on this site and read her blog that explains what happened and what sections that the old lease covers. Kassi has spearheaded a group that will try and have their land severed from the old lease. Your friend that owns the land in Section 21 should probably contact Kassi if they wish to join her efforts and that of their attorney.
I believe that there 2 currently producing wells in Sec. 21 that were drilled into the Glen Rose, 4,200'. I am pretty sure that the size of the units there are 160 acres (1/4) section. Your friends' land would have to be in one of the units in order for them to take part in the production. Ask you friend if they received some paperwork from Bob Anderson, P.E. back in 2004 or 2005 and that will show the plat map and your friends can see if their land is included in the units or not. I think that the units were formed on the east side of the section but it has been awhile since I saw the maps.
The old lease that holds Kassi's land and that of her neighbors is an old one and may hold 4,000 acres in 7 different sections with only 1 producing well in 1 section. They may own their mineral rights but they would be bound by the terms of the old lease yet still not share in the production of the well in the other section. It is certainly an atypical situation and I wish Kassi success.
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
