The best solution is to insert a lease clause that states that the execution of a division order is not a pre-requisite for the disbursement of royalties.

Also, at Sec 91.402 (c), et seq of VCS is a form division order that meets the Texas statutory division order requirements. Texas courts have consistently held that the execution of a division order does not change nor modify the terms of the oil and gas lease.

Great advice, thanks!

Comment by Mike Miller on Monday


Be sure to read the Division Order real close, as this is where some operators have an opportunity to make changes from areas of concern from the original lease language. Most especially the post production costs and where the commodities are priced (ie: mouth of the well).

Thank you, Linton. And the best to you and for that matter all on this site.

Better days ahead!
Comment by Linton Tomlin on Saturday
Stephen, I often rush to read your posts because you generally have such an upbeat attitude. I do hope, as your landman said, it is not only pretty good, but turns out to be exceptional! Linton

I have a position under a section south of Pecos. We have two vertical wells that we're drilled by the original operator a couple of years ago. As of April in 2013, the lease was sold and finally they drilled a HZ well after a couple of delays. The rig was moved off around October 8th. According to their landman today they had first production on December 8th and they subsequently have the right to distribute first runs 120 days after the first of the month following first production. Also I should be looking for new division orders.

This well was drilled after a couple of delays and has seriously been negatively due to price changes.

First production on December 8th and first run by April? All from a well drilled in September and early October, when prices were a lot better.

Not feeling so good, except for the fact that the company landman was nice enough to say that the well looked pretty good.

I don't have any Reeves County production yet - am under lease with Clayton Williams Energy and don't know if they'll drill or not considering oil prices.

Anyway, in Wise County, TX  Devon is paying me by the barrel so I don't know what is reasonable for plant products mcfs. Sounds low to me too.

Does it show a BTU factor?

Comment by John Harris on January 23, 2015 at 2:47pm
