  3. Jude Lasserre says:

    I am looking for a map of Apache well sites and the central control location.
    Can anyone assist?

    • Betty Hegab says:

      Jude Lasserre I also looking for a map of Apache. I too have mineral oil rights in Bryan. I have been talking with a Mineral Right Attorney. She said that all the oil pumped out of my mineral oil rights is the same one of the other oil well rigs is getting oil from the same pool of oil. There are numerous of oil rigs on the same small street, big production going on and they are not offering nothing. They are cheating of the mineral oil rights people that are involved. The lobbyist of the oil companies have gave big bucks for contributions to the Texas Senators to have a mineral oil rights pass in their favor, cheating the people out of their right full cut of the oil being pumped out of our mineral rights. Do you know how to put all of this information out on a web site?

    Hello RT, would you say your list above is current? I would think Halcon would be on the list. I ask because I’m trying to compile a list of the major players in the Eaglebine/Woodbine area, so I just want to be sure I have the most accurate info. Thanks for any help you can offer!

    • R.T. Dukes R.T. Dukes says:


      Updates are coming soon. Halcon has been added above.

      Good luck with your research,
