Got a question about your new oil well? Or any other general oilfield question, I will try and answer it.
Our family has 440 acres in Township 150 N of Range W of the 5th P.M., Sections 24 and 25. Do you know if there is any drilling going on in this area? Empire Oil has the mineral rights. Please reply to jsiess@ibi-opl.com.
Thank you.

Hello,
Two months ago my elderly Dad gave me a pile of Oil and Gas leases to review, and I see that there are revised leases in the pile as well, some correcting legal descriptions and royalties,etc. He's not been very organized in tracking this stuff, so I need to locate the current lease information. How should I go about this - contact each lease company? Is there one source such as a county courthouse that would have this information? I've been appointed POA for his mineral assets and I'd like to get things organized in short order. Thanks.

so he has already leased??? or are these offers? If he has already leased then he shouldnt have kept any offers that didnt become a lease. Yes if he has leased then the courthouse is the way to go...

I have a question. If there is a hearing on August 28 on a well that is all ready producing and it says that it is for temporary spacing. It also says to define the field limits and enact such special field rules as may be necessary. It is in Burke county N.D. 31-161-92H. Any clue what that would be about? Big Fish you seem to know alot about the oil patch. Thanks for all the help in the past.

Yes this is common in the new horizontal bakken drilling areas. What this means is the oil company is applying for permission to drill a well on a special spacing which all these bakkens are, plus, they are going to define the limits of the field that this well plus others are in on a map...Another words, it really doesnt make much difference to you as a mineral rights owner how this is drawn up. The field boundaries in this bakken stuff is merely a formality, since the formation doesnt end this field boundary stuff is done basically for the state and the oil company to track assets in this case. Pretty much standar proceedure.

My husband has some mineral rights in the McKenzie County area. We found out about it the first of the year. These mineral rights are part of an estate and nothing is finalized yet. We were told by the attorney that there is oil production right now, but that is all she will tell us until everything is finalized. I have looked up the location on ND oil and gas website and I do not see any wells on the sections of land that the mineral rights belong to.
My question is how far out from a well do they go with mineral right royalties?

I wondered how williams county ranks in drilling potential?

I am concerned about drillers taking oil from under a neighbor"s land.

Don't be concerned, Bob.
The drillers are not allowed to do that.
Relax.

I share mineral rights on 168 acres in Stark County. Township 140 Range 93 West. Section 5: S 1/2 and some listed lots. Section 8: NE 1/4. Is there any news of drilling plans in this area? Also from my understanding everybody in the area has signed with oneof two companies. All but the land owner for our mineral rights. How does this affect our mineral right potential?

What does "All but the land owner for our mineral rights" mean???? Are you asking how does signing with one or the two companies affects your chances..that depends on which companies we are talking about. Give me more info.

What I'm trying to say is that there is a company that leased the land to the west of us. I believeit was armstrong oil. and cody oil leased the landto the east. They both tried have us lease through them. we chose one of them. I donot own the surface rights (the land). The land owner has not signeda leasenor came to agreement on compensation of surface rights. the land owner around our mineral rights have. So, does that impact our mineral right potential? Sorry, if I'm not asking the questions correctly. I'm trying to understand it all.
