LB, The revenue sharing base is approved by the well authorization and unit, which is approved by the RRC in accordance with the terms of your lease. Signing a document that can be used to disorient the procedure established for ordering a department may not be in the best interest of the passive lessor. Owners of Texas ores are particularly vulnerable to unfair distribution facilities due to the multiplicity of investigations and summaries in the state. The Texas Railway Commission (RRC) grants routine drilling permits to operators who wish to drill horizontally on several rental areas (or existing pooled units) that are not formally „pooled“ in existing oil and gas leases. Some of the most common situations in which these wells are drilled include cases where the pooling provisions of the underlying leases do not allow pooled units large enough to support the entire lateral length of the horizontal well in question, or where the leases on which the well is drilled do not provide for the right to pool at all. While these wells are an „alternative“ to formal pooling, they can be problematic as they are drilled outside the formal construction of the pool, which offers, among other things, an agreed method for attributing the production of drilling products drilled in the pooled area to the wings located in that area. Austin Lee focuses his practice on representing and advising clients on the acquisition and sale of oil and gas properties, saltwater remediation facilities, storage, platforms and other facilities. He also assists clients in all aspects of domestic and international oil and gas activity, from production to sales, including the negotiation and analysis of joint enterprise agreements; Operating agreements for units and units; collective development agreements, leasing and drilling operations, farms and other joint venture agreements; Leases Seismic data… While the Texas Supreme Court has not yet directly addressed the issue, Browning`s decision appears to pave the way for the allocation of production on an uns together basis, provided a tenant can prove with a reasonable probability the amount of production from each undated wing. There is no indication as to how to meet this standard – should the assignment be based on the location of the perforations, the percentage of the linear feet of the hole inside each wing, or a more detailed geological analysis of the formation? Or a combination of these factors? Finally, Springer Ranch, Ltd. v.
Jones answered the question of whether an operator/tenant was properly distributing production from a horizontal well crossing ungoverned wings.
