Oil/Gas/Oil and Gas Lease Anderson County, Texas


East Texas O&G wrote at 2013-04-08 00:57:19

Your friend are mostly likely referring to leasing for $150-250/net mineral acre (NMA).. They would be correct on average. But things are heating up a little over there.

My gut says you should be able to get $300/NMA and 20% Royalty on a three year lease. Over the past three years there have been over 1000 leases/memorandum of leases recorded in Anderson county.

I would recommend getting a lawyer to help you negotiate the terms and the lease.

Hope that I helped you.

Best of luck!

I will try to answer any question you have. Even if I reject a question, I still will give a shot at what I would do in your position. The only questions I will not take a shot at would be a highly technical engineering or geological question. I am beginning to see quite a few questions from land men and other oil companies and that doesn't matter to me either. I will attempt to help.
