New Flower Mound Drilling Permits

In my neighborhood, we heard about the proposed Northshore site because we received leasing letters in the mail. But what if you don't own your mineral rights? What if the developer held the mineral rights? How would you know? What else is coming to Flower Mound that we may not yet be aware of?

Drilling permits are one of the first gates that every new project must go through. Therefore, we really need to keep an eye on the permits so we know what is coming. You can see existing wells and drilling permits on the texas railroad commission site. You have to play with the options on the page; select Denton County, select if you want to see wells, permits, etc. Once you get to the area you want to see, you can zoom in on certain areas. There is also a legend to explain the various symbols.

We found a couple of permits that we want to make sure people know about. The first is located near the Wichita Trail area. Click here for the mapquest link. (Be sure to click on the red star and zoom into the street level.) This permit was submitted on 03/09/2007 and approved 03/16/2007.

The second recent permit is located near Morris. This site has been mentioned along with the Riverwalk development so people may know about it. Click here for the mapquest link. (Be sure to click on the red star and zoom into the street level.) This permit was submitted on 2/22/08 and approved on 2/29/08 (last Friday).

If you live in that area, email us and let us know if you were aware of this site or not and if you were contacted with a leasing letter.

There are additional permits that I am still gathering the data for and I will post those soon. FMCAUD will also be monitoring new permits on a weekly basis and will communicate any updates on this site.

The article in the paper about the riverwalk talked about the wells in that site.

In a recent interview, he said the gas wells are still first priority and that the northern part of the 158 acres has been identified.

“This is the only location where the gas can be drilled to get to this 1,000 acre pool of gas which will benefit the citizens in the surrounding area significantly,” McDowell said.
