Excerpt: “Next year, the Land Office expect another record-setting year, with conservative projections calling for $800 million and up [in income to the state]. ‘Oil and gas production has been up 20 percent in the last two years, and we really don’t have any signs of slowing in the next five,’ said State Land Commissioner Ray Powell, who is charged with administering public lands, including oil and gas leases. ‘So far it’s been primarily focused in the Permian Basin (in the southeastern part of the state), but it’s looking good for the Four Corners as well with the resources up there and the new technologies.’ ” (Submitted on August 16, 2014.)
