|Comment||Thanks, Mark, but other Texas people have given me different info so I'm not sure which to follow. There is no forced pooling in Texas, according to one voice, and 'set asides' are common when some parties do not agree to the terms of a lease or cannot be located, their royalties being deposited in escrow in the county of drilling (don't know if any of this is accurate, however). We were also told by a Ft. Worth attorney that anyone with an interest can negotiate a lease. They just had to have standing. We have a lot of work to do and we can't afford to pay $250 an hour to someone for help and bear all that cost. Most of the people who would benefit from this asset need the money, including us, so it's worth my time but not my financial speculation. All the best, Robert E.|
