Land for Lease in Texas
Texas is a big state, and there is plenty land for lease in Texas that can be obtained for various purposes. Deer hunting and fishing can provide land for the avid sportsman. White tail deer is abundant in many parts of the state, and is so abundant that in some populated areas the deer are actually a nuisance. Although Texas is a very dry state with very limited rainfall and few rivers and stream resources across much of the area, it still has an abundant share of large lakes that are home to some of the best fishing in the world. Leases typically are granted with surface rights, but underground mineral rights in oil generating areas usually have to be specified and negotiated separately.
Millions of years ago, various areas of Texas were above sea level. Due to tectonic plate movements, large expanses of land moved either together or apart. As everyone knows, when plates move together mountains form. The Rocky Mountains, the Sierras, the Cascades, the Ozarks, and the Appalachians are all mountain ranges in the US that formed when plates shifted and moved together. Well, guess what? When land goes up, land goes down. When huge regions of Texas land uplifted to form higher elevations, the surrounding areas sank to form basins. Water filled these basins millions of years ago, forming shallow seas. Usually the seas were only hundreds of feet deep.
As the shallow seas formed in Texas, marine life in the form of algae and other marine organisms lived, falling to the sea floor when they died. Over time, these dead carbon based organisms were mixed with the calcium containing shells of some of the organisms. These were continually compressed by the addition of more overhead sediment accumulation. Eventually, the plates moved back, lifting the new rock, or the seas filled completely in. With the compression came increased temperatures, and somewhere above 50 to 70 degrees the carbon sediment began to cook and be transformed over millions of years into oil. The calcium became a porous rock, called sand. If a layer of impermeable rock had accumulated over the sand, oil and gas could then become trapped in a reservoir by what is called cap rock. Where the sands were deep, the pressure and temperature was high and the oil was converted into natural gas.
