Sandra-I leased several places pretty much in South central Garfield in the past year and received $500 an acre which was pretty much average in my area.Remember-nothing is set in stone.Everything is negotiable!

I have seen lease bonus rates all over the place in Garfield. The specific section/location of the minerals is the most important factor in determining worth. Where are the minerals in question located?

Richard, World oil prices are expected to rebalance sometime around 2020 meaning your minerals should be worth more then and that is why you are seeing the 3 yr extension.  I'm not leasing much now, unless the minerals are going to be forced pooled because it will pay to wait.  But if you can't wait, M Barnes is right, 1/5th or 1/4th is what you should get and $400 is low.

Richard, No on a couple of fronts.  Ask for 1/5 and 1/4th pairs.  You absolutely do not want a three extension.  Ask to see that actual lease draft.  What they offer first is not usually to your advantage.  Many of the clauses need to be negotiated more to your favor.  Depending upon where you are in Garfield, that may or may not be a fair offer.  First offers are usually low.

I'm new to this so any advice would be helpful. We have been contacted by an oil company wanting to lease the mineral rights to our land in Garfield county near Fairmont. The offer is $400 / acre 3/16 Royalty . The contract that I have seen is for 3 years with the ability to extend after 3 years.  Your thoughts

https://www4.oktax.onenet.net/GrossProduction/ This is one link that works for me.

We have oil interests in Garfield Co.  Oklahoma.  At one time I had the links to look at production reports with the OCC.  Those links no longer work.  Can anyone direct me to links that do work.  Thanks

Back in the mid 90's some guys where going around claiming they could use  various slim hole side tracking techniques to reenter verticals with large amounts of water in the underlying formations and successfully fan out muti laterals and save the expense of new wells.  It didn't work well in many areas, but some still believe there are area where does.  I never liked the idea because it usually resulted in water break through and lower production rates than new horizontals.  It's cheap not effective.

There is a lot of that going around these days-holding acreage with sub-par wells that should be plugged. 

Comment by Martha McMorries on February 9, 2017 at 1:10pm

M Barnes,  You could be right about the age of the well.  However, the company reworked that well in 1995 and it's somewhat unknown and questionable.  The Veenker company has a habit of leasing and operating wells adjacent to school land sections.  I had a well on my ranch in a Section 17 in Payne where a guy tried the same thing.  Bad business.
