Eagle Ford Shale: Photo 9

Photo detail

Landman Gloria Ganann, of Dripping Springs, left, and Terri Elbel, of Lufkin, research the record books in the basement of the DeWitt County Courthouse in Cuero. The courthouse has been packed with people researching land and mineral rights ownership for oil companies looking to lease land to drill into the Eagle Ford Shale. The demand for land record information has been so high an oil company has entered into an agreement with DeWitt County to keep the courthouse open Saturday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
