Trabajo Del Spear, LP

Co-Managers - Nelson Spear, Shane Spear
With properties located throughout the continent, Trabajo is currently experiencing its highest activity in Texas.

Trabajo was created in 2010 as part of an effort to consolidate our cornucopia of companies down from thirteen to three:  Trabajo, Realeza and Tierra Del Spear.  In Spanish, trabajo means “to work”; hence, properties in which we participate in the work (i.e., invest in) during the drilling of a well belong here.  In 2010 and 2011 hundreds of working interest properties were painstakingly extricated from thirteen SBG companies and they now reside in Trabajo.  At the same time, properties in which we held a royalty interest were moved to Realeza and properties for which we owned the surface rights to were moved to Tierra. 

Trabajo invests in wildcat drilling ventures and continually seeks new opportunities.  Contact us to tell us about yours or for more information.

What's Going On With Spear Brothers - The good, the bad, and the ugly

What's Going on with Spear Brothers

I'm sorry Dave, I can't let you draw that

Jan 03, 2020 in Web News

The march to fully automate the oil field has made yet another stop at the Spear Brothers Group. Now, in addition to our systems for accounting and document management we are adding Enverus MineralSoft to the mix - a comprehensive mineral and land management platform. After we have completed onboarding, we are looking forward to experiencing an improved ability to evaluate offers and investments, a new set of tools to manage revenue and a marked drop in the practice of hand-drawing property maps from complex legal descriptions. An overall positive impact is anticipated to the collective psyche of the group; however, long-held emotional ties to coloring grids with highlighters may prove difficult to break.

Oh No, They Didn't

Mar 01, 2018 in Web News

Overheard in a recent SBG staff meeting: "What are these two companies you are talking about? I have never heard of them." Reply: "Well, to tell you the truth, we forgot we had them." (Future staff meeting agenda item: "Intervention") #INCADDICTS

Turning Over New Leaves in 2017

Nov 01, 2017 in Web News

Change was certainly in the air at SBG in 2017. Oil prices, staff and responsibilities all fluctuated significantly but have now settled comfortably like wind-blown leaves in autumn often do - and at about the same time. Early in the year, Lori graciously agreed to step into the role of SBG's Office Manager, a position that came with big shoes to fill after the resignation of long-time employee and friend, Cami. Additionally, new administrative responsibilities fluttered into Nancy's role which she thankfully did not choose to sweep away, but rather embrace. So we end this year extremely grateful for the 'pile of leaves' now resting comfortably under the SBG tree. (Incidentally, our Safety Officer strictly prohibits any jumping in it)

Gulf Coast Finally Takes the Plunge

Jan 29, 2016 in Web News

Last, but not least, this month Gulf Coast Oil and Gas Company will join a number of our other companies who consolidated their leases into the pool which now holds the majority of our oil and gas interests: Realeza, Trabajo, and Tierra Del Spear. Come on in, Gulf Coast, the water is fine! (considering the plunging price of oil, the water is not only fine, but investing in it may in fact be more profitable)

Austin Suspends "Weird" Reputation for Five Months

Jun 05, 2015 in Web News

SBG welcomes back Nelson, who spent the first five months of 2015 in Austin serving the Texas Legislature (specifically the office of Fort Worth State Senator, Konni Burton). While there, he played a key role in the crafting and passage of a bill that would greatly reduce the amount of superfluous paperwork Texas teachers are currently drowning in (yes, you heard right, it is an attorney-initiated measure to reduce paperwork).  He also helped to craft and pass several resolutions including one that encourages the soon-to-be-relocating US Africa Command to make their new home here in the Lone Star State (miles and miles of land currently available because... well, it is Texas).  Now, with the long days of wrestling politicians and traffic behind him, Nelson returns to Midland, glad for the experience and ready to rejoin the normal, serene work environment at SBG.  Welcome back, Soldier.
