That could be a difficult job if you don't have any idea where in Oklahoma this well was drilled. Narrowing it down to a county might help but if you live out of state that would make if even harder to go to a county courthouse and do some searching for any old oil lease records. A capped well could mean it was plugged since oil prices were pretty low in 1974 or so.

It can be difficult to find unless the records for the county are computerized. Property Records historically are organized to find the owner once you know the property you are interested in learning about. However when you want to find what properties a particular person owns it is next to impossinpossible unless the records are available to search on a computer. The one county I am familiar with in Ok has property records on line covering the past 10-15 years. The records are organized by county I believe so if you narrowed it down to a couple of counties you could call them and find out whether the records are automated for the period in question and search for ownership online.

Good luck

Furthermore, my dad passed away in 2003 and in his letter to us three kids was to stay on top of this issue because his royalties would pass down to his children. However, I have looked in all of his lock boxes and I can not find any information concerning where these oil wells are located and if there is any progress in releasing the oil. I do know the oil wells are capped in Oklahoma.

The help I need is where do I begin to find out any information regarding these oil wells. Maybe a database or someone to contact. I would appreciate any help from someone with this type of knowledge. You may also email me personally at lakitaluvd@aol.com.

Thank you

Here is another thing I thought about as a long shot. The State of Oklahoma receives unclaimed money from many sources. Many undeliverable oil and gas royalties are held by the state treasurers office.
The web site is as follows.
https://www.ok.gov/unclaimed/index.php

If by chance you find any oil money you might be able to back track to where it came from.
Just a shot in the dark.

Did you inherit all their property? When I changed the mineral rights owned by my parents, I dealt with the court clerk of the county where the rights are located. She would tell me what she needed and I would send. Can't recall exactly, but, easy for you to find out. Certified copies of the will if their is one, certified copies of death certificates... etc...

This is a great source of info on going rates for minerals in various counties, there are sites for each county in Ok with active mineral interests.

A land man found us as owners of minerals we did not know about, it had not been recorded cleanly in the property records. He followed the probate to find who inherited things from someone he concluded owned the minerals and we cut a deal to lease to him. So if you have a high prospect for oil and or gas potential, the land man will find you even if its not in your name officially now. Being in your name might make it easy for a land man but in my view it is not necessary
