Question
I inherited mineral rights in the Rocky Point, WY area of Campbell County, WY.  I am wondering who is currently leasing rights in that area and what type of work is being done (oil, gas, ???) as well.  All those named in the original inheritance have died so I, along with my cousins, need to update contact info with the county as well.

Answer
Not too much leasing activity in the Rocky Point area, but the few who are leasing include Kingsbury Resources, LLC, Azalea Oil Company, LLC, Ballard Petroleum Holdings, LLC, and Bear Peak Resources, LLC. You didn't provide a legal description so can't narrow it down any more than the general area around Rocky Point as to who is leasing. Likely these are all Wyoming companies. You could probably "Google" them for contact information.

As long as your contact info is up-to-date in the county clerk's records any company wanting to lease should be able to reach you and will if they are interested in leasing. If your contact info is not available in the county clerk's records you may want to file a "notice of address" or something so companies could contact you.

Hope this helps you out.

Expertise

Oil and gas leasing, lease negotiations, how to best deal with the oil and gas companies or their representatives, buying/selling mineral rights, forced-pooling, correlative rights, deeds and conveyances, and "post-production" costs. I am most experienced with Oklahoma properties and laws, but am able to answer questions concerning other oil and gas producing states in many cases.

Experience

I am a Certified Professional Mineral Manager (CMM) certified by the National Association of Royalty Owners (NARO) in Tulsa, OK. I am also a Registered Professional Landman (RPL) with the American Association of Professional Landmen (AAPL). I have managed my family's oil and gas properties in Oklahoma for over 10 years and have dealt with many landmen, title analysts, attorneys and other oil and gas professionals in the process. I have written articles of interest to mineral rights owners which have appeared in various industry magazines and newsletters. I have negotiated and drafted leases, prepared deeds, affidavits, and other legal instruments relating to my own minerals, as well as performed title, legal research, and curative work for same. I have acquired a good deal of knowledge on the subjects of oil and gas law, mineral appraisal, and land and title work over the past ten years, and have also worked as a professional landman. I've seen the business from "both sides" and therefore feel confident I can help out most of the folks who ask questions in this forum.
