The Lyda family own virtually 100% of La Escalera Ranch mineral rights.
The main La Escalera Ranch headquarters in Fort Stockton, Texas is located on one solid block comprised of 198,000 acres (28 miles East to West & 14 miles North to South), with a 100% mineral ownership. It would be fair to say that tracts of this size are rare commodities. While the Ranch has operated as a working cattle ranch for over 100 years, the untapped hydrocarbon potential was subsequently studied and determined to be a bounty overlooked in the past.
Geologically, La Escalera Ranch is considered to be in the Delaware-Val Verde Basin. In our opinion, exceptional opportunities exist of La Escalera Ranch for major or independent oil and gas companies interested in hydrocarbon exploration.
