Oil/Gas/Lease offer in Grady County, OK


hi!you helped me back several years ago on another property  lease,i really appreciate your advise &help.this one is section 9-t 4n-r 8w grady county sister and i have been offered 500.00 per acres,on 20 net mineral acres with 3/16 royalty , 3 yr. paid up lease.what is the going bonus and royalty in this area? also, has there been any production?  

the other lease i dropped the bonus(6 acres) and got 1/4 royalty
that would have been great if they had drilled. thank you for your help .i can't get into the commission with my computer program. thanks bev

As far as leasing goes I'd say $500/acre is not bad for your area. Don't let them extend it past three years though unless they offer you more per acre if the extension is exercised.

The Oklahoma Corporation Commission (the regulatory body for oil and gas in Oklahoma) has a wealth of information available online relating to oil and gas activity and production in Oklahoma. You can look up such things as drilling permits, recent production information, well completion reports, forced-pooling orders, and anything else that falls under their jurisdiction.

I've also included a map showing recent drilling permits in your area that have been issued, indicating where the most active drilling is probably going to take place. The map is courtesy of Drilling Info.

Hope this helps you out.

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.


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 several articles which have appeared in various oil and gas 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 landwork over the past ten years, and also worked as a professional landman and lease buyer for a time. 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.
