Santa Rita Well Restoration

University Lands has restored the site of the first well to produce crude oil on its lands. The site of the Santa Rita #1 well, about an hour outside of Midland, TX, in Reagan county, received a complete makeover while preserving as much of the site’s original fabric as possible.



University Lands has teamed up with PDS Energy to facilitate information sharing between its organization and oil and gas operators. PDS Energy's Well Data Exchange provides an excellent solution to streamline the redundant, time-consuming process of submitting and receiving well information from our lessees. We are excited to provide this efficient option to operators on our lands.
