Louis, I own minerals about three sections north of you and all of mine are leased. I'd be happy to answer any questions privately.

On this GIS map you will see the # 11162.   That is a plugged gas well that was drilled in 1997 to 20, 328'.    The green dots on the upper right side of the map are oil wells.   If you have minerals in Section 11/Block 33 just be patient.   The oil companies will find you.

Your section 11 is also Abstract # 150(A-150)

Contact the Ward County Clerks office to see if you own minerals in the County.

Does anyone knows if there is any oil/gas activities going on in Ward County.

I owned 5.480 acres in Ward County in Section 11, Lot 12 and Block 33 Tract 1 H&TC

I heard a lot of activities going in the area, yet, no one contacted me regarding surface lease or anything of such. I am not sure whether I own mineral rights or not.

Can any one tell me how to find out whether I own mineral rights or not?

I signed a lease last November and the person who prepared the lease form put in my net mineral acreage rather than the gross acreage of the tract. Now they want me to sign a new lease that changes that language and they're telling me that is the only change. My question is, how does the language of net mineral acres versus gross acreage effect the lease, and what would you do?

my Ward county gas back charges including severance has escalated to about 40% of total production.  I realize that as production begins to decline it may be more costly for gathering etc.  but this seems very high and unreasonable.  I'm curious as to whether others have the same issues.  I also have heard that there have been lawsuits over excessive charges.  The company is Anadarko.  What's your experience?

Is anybody aware of Ward/Winkler co. royalty payments being late for March 2014 or if it is common/uncommon for royalty payments to come in late after they have been on time like clock work for 9 years?

Where is your location in Ward County.  My dealings with Cimerax have always be satisfactory and friendly.

Comment by Mike East on March 17, 2014 at 10:49am

Our statements list the amount of gas/oil produced and our share amount with totals less tax's for the net amount.  Each company has their own reporting system.

We deal with Cimarex Energy, they pay two months in the rear. This months check was/is for January 2014.  The accounting system is always in question by me.  No month is typical, it varies over the chart. There are six 500 barrel storage tanks on the site and they do store oil and wait for the commodity prices to reach the high point then sell or sell once tanks reach capacity. Cimarex is always adjusting prices and recalculating all amounts on items and may go back for months.  I consider it a shell game with their accounting system.

If anyone has knowledge of how to obtain the actual production records and keep the oil companies accountable I am interested.



Comment by Wade Caldwell on March 15, 2014 at 3:22pm
Roxanne, Yes, too low.

The difference is the amount stored in the tank battery at the end of the reporting period. It should be sold and included in next month's check.
