Oil/Gas/Pooling how can I find out if my Mom has


Question mom has interests in grady co. Okla. Legal description s35-t5n-r7w . I feel that with all the new wells since 2009 there had to be some new drilling...isnt she supposed to get a bonus?  And from who? Thanks

No new wells there since 2009. Most recent was in 2007 and covered only the SW/4 of the section and quit producing in 2008. Unless she owned in the SW/4 she would not have received any money for that well in pooling or lease royalties.

There are still several older wells producing in the section but none cover the entire section so she would have to own in a specific quarter section where one of these wells are to be paid anything.

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.
