This year's OK Chapter of NARO is May 2-4 in OKC at the Skirvin hotel in downtown.  The forms are on the naro-us.org site on the OK chapter page I think.  Just signed up last week.  It is super helpful for a mineral owner that wants to understand what is going on.

Comment by Rick Howell yesterday


It is mostly held in the Tulsa and OKC metro area. There is a National Convention that will be held in the fall in Denver. I'm biased, but I think the Oklahoma convention would better serve your needs.  In the next 10 days or so,  there will be some more changes to the events and agenda than what is current published.

There is some good info posted here under "Mineral Help" on the banner above.  Link

This Link will take you to some info on the OCC page on pooling, but look at the bottom for other links.

Also take the time to look at these. Link

Sign up quickly if you want the discounted room rate at the Skirvin.  It is a Hilton if that makes any difference.  I asked if there were better rates for AARP or AAA and the NARO rates were the best.

Never mind. I found it by Google.  Thanks 

Comment by Murelene Louise Nelson yesterday

Thank you for the invite. Where is this convention being held?

Comment by B Haney on Tuesday

Hello Murlene, I second Rick Howell's suggestion to attend the upcoming NARO convention.  It's really designed to help owners like us understand more about this complex business.  An excellent opportunity to learn and to network with other owners and people that you interact with on this forum.  Welcome, and hope you can make it!

Comment by Rick Howell on Tuesday

If you can swing it, OK-NARO has an upcoming convention that will have numerous educational opportunities.

Thank you Rick for being honest. I have hired an Oil and gas law firm so we can get this all straightened out. I was the sole heir to my fathers estate.

I just found out my position at work is being eliminated so I took an early retirement and will have plenty of time to learn all about this going forward.

Very basic........

An oil and gas lease is more of a sale than a lease. 

You basically sold the property with a down payment up front with the rest to be paid based on a percentage of the sale of the goods produced from it.  If they don't produce any product in 3 years, the property is returned to you.  This is called the primary term (in your case you approved them to extend it "if they chose to do so" for an additional 2 years).  If they start producing it then goes into the secondary term, which is as long and that well is producing as a commercial well.   This means it can hold the lease "forever".  

This is "standard" and has been for 125+ years. Lessee (land agents, operators) have been selling, assigning, and transferring leases for the same amount of time. 

This is not happening to 300 people. The assignment of leases is happening to hundreds of thousands of people. 

For most of the counties, the clerk records can be researched on okcountyrecords.com


"Inherited" does not necessarily pass clear ownership to the heirs. I suggest probating your father's estate in Oklahoma to complete the process to ensure you are paid on the production.

I forgot to say if you query by section, township and range, you have to use the format used by that county. McClain County format is like: 6 6N4W. But, you can also query on your name.
