New Mexico is not covered by the Texs Railroad Commission.  You should check with the New Mexico Oil Conservation Commission.  Their website ongard has a lot of good information as to production.

I have spoken with Nantucket and the reason they do not send a revised contract is they want to nail down a deal ASAP, at least that is my opinion.  They are not asking for mineral rights, just the royalties!  Because they are not as big as some of the other companies, they want to get their deal done and revising a contract is the fastest way to do it.  I found them pleasant and trustworthy and more than accommodating!  Liked working with them!

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.
