We did a deal with Cabot for all our family holdings in the county when they wanted some closer to town. This was about 2 months before the "rush" two years ago. We do not have all the minerals under that tract.
When are they going to rebuild the bridge crossing the bayou? My dad said his dad donated trees to mill into lumber to build the bridge "way back there" and that he (my dad) donated trees for lumber to rebuild it in the 1970s.
We are across the bayou from you. Most of that tract is on the north side of the dirt road but about 50 or 60 acres is south of the road directly across the bayou from the Lonnie Skinner place. That tract is about 350 acres all on the east side of the bayou.
Only come over to SA about once a month. I live 200 miles away. I don't know any of the county road numbers since that is all new since I moved away. Where is CR 3000? Our family has property about 3.5 miles south of 103 and also east of the old Lonnie Skinner place. I will post what I see when I am in.
JWC, personally I do not think there is any downside to having seismic shot in your area as it is beneficial in helping the operator select the optimum placement of future wells. It is unlikely that seismic data would be the basis for a company deciding not to lease your property.
I just read the permit Seitel Data wants my Dad to sign & it's a joke! They only want to pay $15 p/acre for the portion of the land they plan to stretch cable. It's a 41 acre tract & they only want to pay for 30 acres. CHEAPSKATES!!! Also, they are not offering to pay $$'s per hole shot. In other words, if they drill a 70' hole & set off a blast on your property, it has always been standard practice to pay $100 or so. Not these folks! I'm calling them tomorrow to tell them to stay off the land if they can't do better than that. I'll let you know how it goes...
We got a letter in the mail today from a seismagraph company. They're starting work in the McCune area of 705. I'll look at the map tomorrow when I visit my Dad & see if they're going south of 103. They want us to sign papers so they can cross our land just north of 103. Seismagraph activity is GOOD...
I sure want to believe that this will be our year, JWC. From what I am seeing about field rule changes, it is good for us that we haven't been included in a well unit yet. If the rule does get changed to 320 acres for a horz. unit, that would be super for mineral owners. You could almost make a unit by yourself. As it is you have to share with neighbors, LOL. Hope your holidays were great!
Hey, J. You must be reading "Jurassic Exploration Inc." on OIlvoice. I saw them just a few minutes ago. I really don't know what to make of it. I told someone just minutes ago, that JEI is the lone voice in the dark touting Sabine County. Can't find anything about them on the internet, though. Gotta go say Hi to Shelly now. I'll e-mail you later. Getting ready for a trip to town (SA). My son went back to Iraq on Monday, so things are slowly getting back to normal once again. I just want some dry days so I can cut my knee deep grass, LOL.
Good morning! I was just checking to see how your mother in law was doing. I hope she is getting better. I was going to try an get up there this week to go by and see her. So let me know if that would be alright. OK . Well anyway have a wonderful day. Take Care! Shelley
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
