K Dawn,

I think you received notice of a pooling back in March, 2014. I recommend you call the Marathon office in OKC that was listed on the application. They should be able to tell you why they think you do not own an interest in the HK Doom.

Here is the contact info:

Randy Wilson (A good chance someone else handles the area now)

Marathon Oil Company

7301 NW Expressway, Suite 225

Oklahoma City, OK 73131

Phone: 405 720-5557

No depth clause as far as I can see; they are really old from 1942. There are depth clauses on the unitizations but not on the leases.

Comment by K Dawn yesterday

Yes I do have copies of both leases and there is no depth clause and yes I did receive them from probate and it has been filed in Stephens County.

Comment by M Barnes yesterday

Do you have copies of the original leases? Is there a depth clause?

Have the minerals been passed to you by probate and have you filed a copy of the probate in Stephens county.

Comment by K Dawn yesterday


I thought that I had ownership of minerals that have been leased; because my Grandmother is on the original leases; their are 2 of them; one for 40 acres of land and another for 50 acres of land. It would seem to me that if my Grandmother is on the original leases I would have ownership of the minerals in the lower formations. Your thoughts on this.  How would I clarify this?

Comment by soonerpe yesterday

K Dawn,

What type of ownership do you have in the units? Do you own minerals that have been leased or did you somehow end up with a small working interest?

If you have a royalty interest you would probably never be involved with the operating committee since you are the lessor not the leasee. Also, operating committees often do not do much after a unit has been developed unless there is a major change in circumstances or the leasees are dissatisfied with the operator.

Unless there is some reason you do not own rights below the unit formations it seems that you should be receiving revenue from Marathon for the HK Doom well. Did Marathon why they believe you don't own an interest in the well? If not, I would ask them.

Thank you for getting back to me; I know Chevron; they are the operators that I am held by production by in the Simms; Humphreys, and Tussy.  However, according my documents on the unitizations there is suppose to be a unit operating committee that is suppose to supervise the operator and forward to information to the Lessee, each Lessee is suppose to have chosen which person on committee to be their contact. I The attachment below is a screenshot of the information from my Humphreys Sand Unitization agreement. Does anyone know anything about this? I've never been contacted by the committee if there is one. I was just wondering if it is a standard practice?

The only info I can provide is Chevron operates the Velma Sims Sand Unit. I do not have any contact info but I believe it is managed out of Houston.
