Is there a way to search for Docket results or OAP orders on a particular section without scrolling the Docket results on OCC site. Thanks in advance!

Thank you M Barnes.

What it often means with that six month time frame is that they drill the well and then the operator has to come back after the well is drilled and report to the commission what the exact split of the perforations is per section for the multi-section well.  The split is required so that the royalties can be apportioned appropriately to the owners.  The pooling order would give the time frame for drilling the well.  They either have 180 days or 365 days to commence drilling, then six months after the completion to get back to the OCC.  The operator has to start paying six months after first sales or they owe 12% interest for clear title holders.

That's what I don't know either, Terry. Don't know if they have 6 months to get started or have to wait 6 months and apply again. Hoping for someone with more knowledge than me can answer.

"Rec" with a date listed = Interim Order Recommended with a Reopen Date.

I believe that means they have approved the application for the well, not sure what is meant by "Interim Order with Reopen Date".  Maybe they have 6 months to drill without having to re-apply?

Sorry, I meant February 28.

Just looked at the Tulsa docket for January 28. On Docket 201700781 & 201700782 pertaining to a location exception on 26 & 35 of 17-12, on one page I found it marked I.O. Rec. 8-29-2017. On another page of the docket I found it marked with an (R). Could someone explain this to me please?

You are welcome, Mr Price. I noticed that Newfield just bought a ton of leases from Chesapeake in this area. Newfield may be willing to make you an offer, too.

Comment by Mike Price on March 1, 2017 at 12:57pm

Mr. Weeks- Thanks for the info. Our minerals are at 35-13N-13W. We're looking into various possibilities now.
