ARMINGTON – The San Juan Basin could be headed toward a renaissance in natural-gas and oil drilling if rosy expectations touted by industry officials at Monday’s San Juan Basin Energy Conference hold true.
“In the southern part of the basin, the Mancos play has the potential to revitalize declining San Juan Basin oil production and also has a tremendous amount of future gas production in the northern part of the basin,” said Ron Broadhead, a principal…

Permit to DO 144 days.
I have been looking at different posts and reading statements regarding concerns of H2S and safety.
I have many friends in the area which state the concentrations are very high all up and down the EFS.
So I went looking...at the RRC...man they have a really old and slow system, but with a little persistence and digging I believe I understand.
H-9's are submitted before a well is…Continue
I came across this site recently when preparing presentations for family owned minerals in Brazoria County pertaining to the Clemens Salt Dome and the old West Columbia field which Jetta acquired from Chevron and is now developing previously overlooked oil reservoirs. I found the information on this site useful and up-to-date.
Some of you may have seen this before but it is a great video explaining the drilling process and then onto fracking of the well to production

Attorney Spotlight: Ben Elmore

Mailbox money is a slang term of the shale era. “You wake up one day and you get a call from a land man” promising $1,000 an acre and a 20 percent royalty on oil and gas production from your…

If your safety personnel are going to have actual positive influences on the behaviors of your drivers.... they need to have actual over the road driving experience. Certifications are good and if meeting regulatory requirements is going to be the metric you measure success then certifications are the way to go. If success is going to be measured by actual reductions in preventable accidents then a combination of experience and certifications is needed.

Years ago in Burleson, Texas, a company eager to extract natural gas from the Barnett Shale entered negotiations with property owners who were just as eager to profit from the minerals beneath their suburban development.
For a while, the talks favored…
A recent WSJ article highlights the concerns associated with development within shale oil and gas plays. Many Shale Oil and Gas Economies are resource-constrained (in both labor and materials) because of rapid growth but also because of the fear that the boom may go bust. Oil prices are extremely volatile. There is reasonable reluctance by investors and local governments to ‘go long’, to make the necessary and expensive long…Continue
