McMullen Co and LaSalle Co Land

How do I find out where we stand with EOG on our land?  EOG has had it leased for 2 yrs now.  We've heard nothing.  We have land in Tract 54, Subdivision Section No. 49 of the second subdivision of the Naylor and Jones Ranch.  E.R. Lane Survey A-585 in McMullen Co and Andrew P. Lusk Survey No. 760, A-1259 in LaSalle Co.  EOG has paid us a bonus to lease and the survey company paid us to do a survey.


Any info would be appreciated.

I had made bold assumptions when I first posted

Today as I write this I am reminded all too closely of General Morales's takedown when reading about 

Chinese politician Bo Xilai has been expelled from the Communist Party

 when one works at that "level" it is easy as jellybeans to cheatsheet

Yesterday I took as much time as I could put on the matter to work this issue closer and yet again have someone comment to…

Karnes County well- DeBil 01

Looking for information as far as if the well is in production or not,  The well was permitted in April 2011 and the operator is Pioneer Nat. Resources.  The lease is 1092 arces which seems to be a fairly large amount of acreage for the area(Northeast of Runge).  The pad site looks to have a wellhead and a metering station but no tanks. The family owns a very small amount of mineral acres. Just curious.

Thank You for any information

Southwest Fayette County

I'm interested in any information about the Southwestern part of Fayette County, North of Flatonia.  I've seen the paper report for three of the wells; but, nothing since.  Hear some gossip; but, no real new information.
