Williams Rule 37 against LISD Hearing Next Week

The hearing for the Williams Rule 37 Exception against LISD (Lewisville Independent School District) will be held next Friday, December 16th, at 9:00 am.

As of now, it appears LISD is still going through with the protest even though they voted at their last Trustee Meeting in November to solicit bids to sign gas leases near two of their properties. Both properties are located in Lewisville. One of the sites sits right on the Flower Mound/Lewisville border.

The hearing is for the site near the Flower Mound border.

I can't believe LISD would even think of signing when gas prices are so low. But I guess they figured the gas companies are already drilling over there. Plus I was told that whether they sign or not the gas companies can drill as many wells as they need to without LISD. They could go just go a little farther with LISD on board and get more gas.
That is NOT the case for Hillard. No signing means quite a few less wells. Plus it appears Titan couldn't Rule 37 them at Hillard either.

If they are being Rule 37d, they clearly don't want to sign. What's really up with this? Do the LISD attorneys think they can win? Or is this about some kind of strategy? I do like to see these Rule 37s because they bring out so much of the ridiculous issues with the arguments. And the transcripts are filled with all kinds of goodies. Hopefully, there will be a large group at the hearing.

Sounds like it's time for a letter campaign to the RRC -- they need to hear all our very valid reasons why not to allow an exception. Can FMCAUD give us the examiners names?

Does anyone know how many acres are involved in this protest?

The RRC wants to hear from a lot of people and not just the standard ones who protest them.

The letter writing campaign was effective in the proposed changes to the rule 37 last spring -- last I called it didn't happen and was unlikely to do so this year and I was told it was due to public opinion.

For anyone who may not know, these hearings are open to the public in Austin and anyone can attend (but you cannot speak unless you are a party to the hearing or the hearing examiner calls on you).
