While money could definitely have been part of the equation in the withdrawal of the Pegasus project from Hobbs as it was unclear to us exactly why they withdrew, the official reason remains land acquisition, more specifically, mineral rights. From the beginning these rights were not included in the public and private land acquisition. I surmise that Pegasus somewhat changed the scope of their project and now need those rights. Their negotiations near Las Cruses are now contingent on those rights.
