Wait, Synopse was offered $1000/acre and angellady was offered $4500/acre? Wow. Big difference for a few miles apart.

We live in Hughes County and have not had any royalties for a long time. I heard if they don't pay you any royalties for a year, you can sue them. If anyone knows a good oil/gas attourney, send me a DM.

Our friend from Cali lives down close to Calvin, OK. He is the one who has been having people from Texas surveying his land. Then he "threatened" to sue them, and they countered with an "actual" lawsuit of their own. It got pretty nasty, but the oil company has the bucks to hire an attourney, and most folks don't have that.

Cool Thank you OCC~

LOL. MK, when gas hits $5/gallon, you will hear them laughing all the way to the bank.

For those with inquiring minds and a LOT of time, there is a way to research well construction and company information on that website. Just click the link below and follow the instructions.

OCCWebAppsPage

This is a program which allows you to search the database of the Oklahoma Corporation Commission for wells on your property. Basic well information, completion and production.

I am just tapping into it, and it is amazing what one can find on the web. Requires a download, but it is WELL worth it.

Happy drilling for information.

Synopse, if a person does not receive any royalties for one year, place a call to OK Corp. Commission. The drilling company will receive a letter from OK Corp Commission telling them they have to plug or produce in 30 days.

Puts a fire under their ass.

Well, my brother is an attorney, and a successful one at that (actually, my half brother). He hasn't said a word about it, and he is usually on top of such things. Heck, maybe he's getting all of it!

I received your DM Redbird. Thanks very much; I'll give him a call.

The interesting thing is, I also have mineral rights on the property where we live (here in DFW) and they are going to be drilling under us and are supposed to pay an initial sum of around 4K and then royalties per month. This is all on the up and up because we have a neighborhood association (not to be confused with a homeowner's association) of volunteers that are negotiating with the petroleum company for more $$$.
