Hey, Tucker was a great show but this is No Hollywood script. But real life and really high stakes poker rolled into one.

If it was Hollywood production it would be "Giant" with Mr. David Martin Phillip as Jett Rink and Murphy Oil and the Out of town Land Men in bed together as Rock Hudson, OOps..... with a big party at the Torres Mansion. pony rides. cigars, booz.... NOT it's real life and property rights. South Texas consult your attorney before you sign anything.

I would have thought that what was going on with Murphy Oil and Mr. David Martin Phillip was unique. I guess it'd be nice to have a cool $3 mil laying around, too.

Mr. Phillip owns half the minerals on this parcel, this is the part I don't get. How can Murphy Oil get away with taking his half of the oil under his property and not paying him for it. I understand the concept of him drilling near the Murphy Oil rig and them competing for the same pool of oil, because they are both entitled to it.

All I can say is good luck to him... and "I drink your milkshake."

: Ladies and gentlemen... I've traveled over half our state to be here tonight. I couldn't get away sooner because my new well was coming in at Eagle Ford Shale and I had to see about it. That well is now flowing at two thousand barrels and it's paying me an income of one hundred eighty-five thousand dollars a day. I have two others drilling and I have sixteen producing at Eagleville. So, ladies and gentlemen... if I say I'm an oil man you will agree. You have a great chance here, but bear in mind, you can lose it all if you're not careful. Out of all men that beg for a chance to drill your lots, maybe one in twenty will be oilmen; the rest will be speculators-that's men trying to get between you and the oilmen-to get some of the money that ought by rights come to you. Even if you find one that has money, and means to drill, he'll maybe know nothing about drilling and he'll have to hire out the job on contract, and then you're depending on a contractor that's trying to rush the job through so he can get another contract just as quick as he can. This is... the way that this works. NOTE TO MURPHY OIL .. this guy is going to drink your milkshake ... just like you were going to Drink HIS Milkshake... Murphy oil land men watch out the bowling alley... this could be a real head ache for u. SHAME ON U MURPHY OIL, finally someone has stood up to you ... Mr. Phillip will drink your milkshake
