SpaceX and oil company in legal battle over 24 acres of land near Starship facility

SpaceX and several Texas energy companies are tangled in a legal battle over a barren strip of land near the commercial space company’s Starship production facility outside Brownsville, with multiple parties tussling over who owns what rights to the property, threats of criminal trespass charges, and allegations of theft and attempted extortion.

Set against the backdrop of property values skyrocketing with SpaceX’s rapid development in the area, the matter stretches back to 2017.

It moved into court in October, when Dallas Petroleum Group LLC filed a lawsuit in district court in Cameron County and a complaint with the Texas Railroad Commission. It alleges Sanchez Midstream Partners of Houston broke the terms of a 2017 purchase agreement, worth $6.25 million, for various oil and gas leases that included two wells on a 24-acre tract adjacent to the SpaceX facility.
