Because of the proceeds it acquired from different overriding royalty interests, Breitling Energy announced on Friday, March 14, that it has enough funding to tap 900 wells and drill on more than 4,000 acres of land in various states across the U.S., including Texas.

This announcement came after the company made its discovery of oil in Taylor County, TX public. Breitling started its operation in Taylor on February 11, and has estimated that 40 to 50 barrels of oil are being produced each day by its wells at the Teaf #1.

After being denied the right to drill, Trinity East Energy sues Dallas

Posted on Friday, February 21st, 2014 at 4:16 pm    

An online report in the Dallas Business Journal revealed that Fort Worth-based Trinity East Energy has filed a lawsuit against the city of Dallas Thursday, February 16, over accusations that the city committed breach of contract, inverse condemnation, an unconstitutional taking, and fraud.

According to the lawsuit, the city of Dallas denied Trinity East its right to drill and to create a compressor station on the northwest border of the city despite the fact that the company paid the city $19 million for property leases in 2008. The company had bought the minerals from the city with the plan to drill for them.

The company demands recoup from the damages it has incurred. A total of $30 million has been invested by Trinity East to drill natural gas in the area, but its claim might become higher due to lost profits caused by the inability to sell natural gas.

Our team at The Mineral Auction is equipped with the knowledge and experience needed to guide you through the process of selling your mineral rights. Call us today at (512) 698-2802 to know more about how we can help you sell your mineral rights and get the best price possible.


Understanding the rights of mineral estate owners

Posted on Friday, January 31st, 2014 at 10:40 pm    

A mineral estate, commonly referred to as mineral right, is a property right to mine, use, develop, sell, and profit from any or all of the minerals extracted from underneath certain pieces of land. These minerals include gas, oil, metals, ores, and other organic or inorganic materials that are part of the soil and can be found beneath the ground. However, materials such as gravel, limestone, sand, and subsurface water are not considered underground and, thus, are not part of the mineral estate.

The general rule that the mineral estate is dominant over the surface estate also applies to Texas. This means the mineral rights owner can:

  • Use as much of the surface of land as reasonably necessary for mineral exploration and development
  • Receive royalties
  • Further convey rights
  • Receive payments for drilling delays without terminating the lease
  • Receive bonus considerations

Understanding the laws surrounding mineral rights can be extremely difficult without the aid of a mineral rights broker at The Mineral Auction. Call us at (512) 698-2802 to find out more about mineral rights and their potential revenue.
