Any idea when the wells at 3 145 97 and 15 145 97 come off the confidential well list? Also, do you have any production numbers for the wells at 32 146 97 and 21 145 97.
thanks

Excellent info in this forum.

Checking on an offer my parents received from a company called Northern Energy in Bismarck. They own 10 net acres out of 320 gross acres in Renville County at Township 160, Range 84W. Offered $25 and 1/8 royalty for 5 years. Looks low compared to some of the other offers, but don't know the area well other than recent onine research, and live in VA. Advice? Thanks.

unfortunately renville county is a differnt planet than whats usually discussed here. meaning as far as i know there isnt no bakken production in that area so most of what is discussed here isnt going to apply to you. i would counter offer the same deal but 1/6 royalty and see what they say. if they wont budge then take the deal. You arent going to get rich off of 10 acres anyway...

well read the above posts regarding getting paid for minerals after 150 days. Normally if its done right it (division order) get sent out about a month or so after the well goes off of the confidential list. However, some companies are behind so they are sending them out long after the well is off the list.

i am mistaken those posts arent on this thread. Read the "Oil leasing and drilling in Mckenzie county" thread. Go to the last 3-5 posts and read it. The division order is sent to set up payment for mineral rights....

Got an oil well type of a question. Maybe unsure about what a oil lease is. Then Ask the big fish. I dont know everything but i will give you my opinon
My brothers and sisters inherited mineral rights to a farm in Beach, ND. My brother (executor of my mother's will) received a check for $1200, which was to be split evenly between six children, last fall. How can we find out what the check was for? He said he wasn't disbursing funds until he received a "prospectus", which sounds like a bunch of flim flam to me. Where can my brothers and sisters find out what this money was for and whether a lease was signed, whatever? Thanks. Personal response can be sent to [email protected]

Well $1200 isnt much money for an oil lease if thats what it was for. I dont know how many mineral rights you have but thats nothing. Sounds like you need to hire an attorny perhaps to find out what that was for. There are no prospectuses pertaining to an oil lease so your right that is "Flim Flam".

Can mineral rights be taken from you if they are willed to you forever.

If at one time a party agreed to stay on the property to run it if they got 50% of the property did they also get the mineral rights.

Hi Fish...Just got the division order signed and returned.( right on time too i might add ) I was just wondering how long on average a 1280 acre spaced well will produce before it drops way off ?

depends on your definition of "drops way off", but for the most part after 1 year the oil production will be significantly less ...

I inherited a part interest from my mother in mineral rights on 160 acres in T155N R91W Sec15 SW1/4 Mountrail Co. These mineral rights were "unused" for a number of years but were leased last year (1/6,$250/acre, 5years). My question is, is the leasing sufficient to avoid N Dakota's "Termination of Mineral Interest" law that allows surface owners to reclaim the mineral interest after 20 years of no activity or do I (and my cousins)still need to file a statement of claim with Mountrail County?
