Mexco Energy Corporation has purchased various royalty interests at a price of $1,000,000 covering approximately 1,800 wells in 27 counties of Texas. Of these oil and gas reserves, approximately 77% is natural gas and 23% oil. Mexco believes that there is potential for further development of a number of these royalties especially through horizontal and vertical drilling and fracturing. These royalty interests are free of expenses to Mexco for drilling and operations.
Approximately 15% of the net revenue from these royalties comes from 237 wells located in Reagan County, Texas. Also included are interests in 21 wells in Glasscock County, Texas. Both of these counties are in the horizontal Spraberry Wolfcamp trend. The second largest source of net income is in Webb County, Texas from 202 wells producing 13.5 % of net income. Royalties in Karnes County, Texas produce approximately 5% of net revenue from 30 wells. Both of these counties are in the Eagle Ford trend.
