I have heard that they are looking for oil again in Green and surrounding counties. I remember a BIG BOOM in the early to mid '70's! I just wondered if anyone had any info. I own some mineral rights to properties that have produced oil in the past, but most have dried up. But I have heard from a couple of sources that they are scoping for it again. Any info will be greatly appreciated.

I just remember that they found oil on my grandfathers place in Donansburg. It turned out to be more gas than oil in the end.

When brothers Travis and Mitchell Coomer started drilling on the 500-acre J.R. Clark lease, located in the Exie Quadrangle in Green County not too far from the Adair County line, they felt like they'd hit some decent oil wells. And they were right.
The Coomers, who not only are drilling the wells but also own them (along with their sons), have drilled 20 wells on the Clark lease, and have hit oil in 12 to 15 of them, according to Travis Coomer.
Their best well,#127A, was hit in the Knox formation at a depth of 1,610 feet a little over three months ago. And, according to Travis Coomer, it's still going very strong.
"This well is still pumping 80 barrels and day and has shown no signs of letting up," he said. "It'd probably make 150-200 barrels a day if we pushed it, but we're not going to do it. We're happy with the way is producing now."
Travis and Mitchell Coomer, who have hit some massive oil wells in their years of drilling in southcentral Kentucky, but Travis Coomer says the Clark #127A well is one of the better ones he's hit in some time.
"That well is probably as good a well as I've drilled in quite some time," he stated. "I wish all of our wells were like it."
Coomer said that they will be drilling some more wells on the Clark lease and surrounding area in the near future. "We're getting everything together to get more permits, then we'll go back at it," he said.

and the only ones THEY own are the good ones a group out of canada paid 4 every 1 of those wells they drilled. and if they hit oil they permitted them in their name and if they were not good wells the permitted them in the canadians company,,, but wait i do believe you have to get permits first

I own some rights in Exie. I also have a few in surrounding counties as well(Adair, Taylor, etc.) It's hard to know what is going on all the time. There is so much money at stake, and the business is cutthroat! I guess I better keep a better eye on things.

has to be oil around the area, pretty close, then you lease it to an oil co and they drill to see of there is oil. the land owner gets 12.5%. that could add up to alot of money.
now thats a good one
