Any else still waiting on White Star to finish their system conversion so they can send out royalty checks?  This is what I was told last week when I emailed them.  They are not even loaded in PDS…Continue

Has anyone received lease offer from MDS Minerals in Payne County? They're offering $50 acre 3 yr lease. Seems ridiculous, but I'm not current on oil patch activity.Continue

That is what I thought. Thank you!!!

Usually Pooling orders are only good for a certain time frame.  You would have to read in the pooling order to see the time frame.

Permits to drill expire and can be extended by paying an additional fee.

Comment by G. Win on December 7, 2017 at 1:01pm

What happens if a company gets all the paperwork completed including the  pooling and the OCC has given the drilling permit but they haven't drilled in 3 years. Do they have to start the paperwork process over again in order to drill. I signed a 2 year lease extension in May of 2016. Do they have to go back to the commission to apply for a new drilling permit??

Tom, I agree and never sign up for direct deposit. 

Comment by Tom Ed Moore on November 7, 2017 at 6:12am

Beware the wording in direct deposit agreements. In another county Newfield Exploration slipped in a clause in their deposit agreement that required any litigations have to filed in their home state, Woodlands, Texas. That was enough for me to never accept direct deposits from any companies, even ones headquartered in Oklahoma.

On October 13, WSP sent me an Excel worksheet (likely what is uploaded to PDS or Oildex) that showed all needed details to record the revenue, taxes and deductions - that was for September 2017.  This was only 2 days after the deposit.  This month, they said "truly sorry" no sheets available.

Comment by Martha McMorries on November 6, 2017 at 7:27pm

Rick, I don't have direct deposit and still not getting revenue run print outs.  Not good.

Comment by RICK FAHLE on November 6, 2017 at 7:15pm

Now all of the historical WSP statements have been cleared from Oildex.  I can only hope this means they will be loading revenue files for those of us on direct deposit.

Re the screw up with White Star accounting. Back before the changeover, they messed up on one of our wells and changed all the mineral interests to just 25% of what the actual interests were. They messed around for a few months "trying" to fix the "unfortunate glitch" in the accounting system. Then the dummies corrected the mineral rights amounts and sent out corrected checks -- for the full amount. So now we had received 125% of the royalties owed. Took another few months before they figured that out.

Good news is W-Str has planned to drilled more wells in Logan close to Payne and Middle East recent upsets signal changes in ruling princes as well as in oil price.  Oil will be king again.
