Mineral Rights Forum

America’s conversation place for mineral owners

Just received division orders from Carreera Energy  and a little confused on the interest payment. I own 160 acres of mineral rights in this section with a lease at 3/16th. but the orders indicate a .04687500 what am I missing?

320/1280*.1875 so it's your acreage divide by the spacing of the well( 2 sections at 640 each) times your 3/16th interest
I though I read 320 acres so you are on a single section well so it's 160/640*.1875

The formula is net acres/spacing acres x royalty x % of perfs in your section.

You have 160/640 x .1875 x 1.0 (single section well) = .25 x .1875 x 1.00 = 0.046875. 

Your Division order is correct.  If it comes up a bit off sometimes, the first place I look is to see whether the section is truly 640 acres (many of the first row and west column of sections are not always a pure 640).  The second place to check is the true percent of perforations in your section if a multi-section well.  It is not always 50%.  In your case, you have a single section well, so it is 100% or 1.0.  You are correct in all terms of the equation.
