America’s conversation place for mineral owners
After inspecting my last statement I see where White Star has taking out all kinds of deductions that they are not suppose to (it’s clearly spelled out in my lease). This amounts to a substantial amount of money being deducted, even though they show zero deductions on the bottom line! I'm confused, could I be reading this wrong? Is anybody else having this problem with White Star?
Google wstr.com and take it from there. Try their land and/or accounting departments first.
Do you have a phone number for W/S land office or do you know now to get the number?
You are not confused. Many oil and gas companies ignore the terms of their contract because there is not much you can do about it. You will be lucky to even get them to answer the phone.

Robert, think you're right, but I'm good at driving them nuts and usually, I always get what I want. Just takes time though!
I am not having problems with White Star, but have had problems with several other companies. Call the company leave a message for 5 days in a roll at different time, if they don't return the call. Write a letter, mail certified, tell them that they haven't returned your calls and you will be turning it over to an attorney within 15 days unless you hear from them and they can explain why they are taking out deductions. Most companies will tell you it's an over site on their part. B_! and it will be corrected on your next check. Also, if it's not corrected, ask for interest. I have got as much as a couple thousand in interest because of their over site and it couldn't be corrected. Sometimes it has to be explained to them by a good oil & Gas attorney before they seem to understand. Good luck.
Bizjournals.com says that Marathon is dumping billions of its Canadian assets as large energy companies are pulling out of the oil sands region ... In the meantime, you can give it a try ...

Virginia .. Yeah sure, an over site! Going straight in their pocket! lol WS has always responded to my emails, but they acted as though they have never had anyone question their statements before. Thanks for the info., since I may have to go that route.
Thanks everyone! I never had any problem with Devon, but I've 'dropped the ball' with White Star! This is not good if they're ignoring what's spelled out in the lease. I'll go through all of my past statements and let you know their response! Although, I do need to learn how to read these statements better and pay more attention to the details because, I've just been glancing at the bottom line that stated -0- for deductions. What caught my eye was all of the above deductions from processing, marketing, transportation, fuel, gathering, oil gathering, etc., showing up minus (-) and plus (+) page after page amounting to a lot of money even though the bottom line shows -0-! I'll let everyone know ...
Kaye, keep me posted on White Star also, I am on the Payne County page, tx...bob
A little slow, but I will, Bob.
