Back in the days of vertical wells the drilling units were 40 acres. How many acres are required now for a horizontal drilling unit?
You can look up a Declaration of pooling and unitization (DPU) in the county courthouse. The operator files this document when finalizing a unit. Note: the operator can amend this DPU. It will tell you how many total acres the said unit holds.
With longer and longer laterals the companies are trying to expand the unit size in the leases for horizontal. A year ago my lease was
1280 acres with 10% tolerance
We recently signed a lease that said 1400 acres. Our last lease was 1270 acres.
