University Lands (UL) leases its acreage to companies for oil and gas development and retains a royalty interest in any production.
All paperwork and other materials related to the leasing of UL acreage for oil and gas development can be found under
Forms, Policies & Procedures.
All oil and gas operations on UL acreage, as well as drilling and completion reporting, should be conducted as outlined in the
University Lands Oil & Gas Leases Required Operating, Reporting & Compliance Procedures.
A more detailed description can be found within, but, in summary, as the land and mineral owner,
UL is entitled to all information pertinent to drilling and completions, including daily drilling, completion and operational reports; mud-logs; information
related to core or drill stem tests; electric logs; flow-back test results; directional surveys; wellbore schematics; seismic; perforation information; etc.
All information should be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Detailed geological and engineering data are available to current and prospective parties on the UL Well Library, which contains both historical and
current information for all drilling and completions on UL acreage.
All UL leases are approved by the UT System Board of Regents or the
Board for Lease of University Lands, which oversees lease sales, approves leases and sets
rules around the leasing process. The current UL Lease form is Lease Form 48.
Damage rates for oil and gas-related surface activities are updated regularly and published in the
University Lands Rate & Damage Schedule.
