I can tell you 90% of the landman are unemployed currently much like the roughecks on Drilling Rigs. Going rates vary but today leases if you can get any interest are going for 50% of 3 years ago. private message me if you want the names of two real good sole practioners oil lawyers with fair rates.

We need to hire someone to look over family producing wells, and paperwork we have received recently from co., to determine if we are making the right decisions. Is this a landman or oil attorney? Any recommendations, pls email us.

Thanks Derek and Jay, I first need to find out if we have to allow them to extend the contract and if yes, do we also have to accept their offer without any negotiating. We don't own a huge amount of acre's, only about 8 in Weld County. But being in California it's feels strange not knowing if this company is actually drilling or producing anything.

I have been tracking lease prices and royalty rates in Weld County for over a  year now, and I can help you both better understand what you are dealing with. I have 4 years experience working as a landman negotiating leases for producers. Email me if you want to get a better understanding of what you are dealing with. Derekod57@gmail.com

Steve, where are your mineral rights located? Lots of variabled to consider but that sounds like a good starting place. I have some rights that just expired so I'm starting the negotiations again for my family. Received $1000/acre on 4 year term with 20% royalty but that contract just matured. Not sure what the market is going to offer now??? Call me if you want to talk in private.

Helping my mother with her mineral rights. Looking for info regarding a company called DJ Resources who are looking to extend an expiring contract. They are offering $380 to lease the property for 2 years not sure if that is the standard rate or if anything has been done on the property. Do we have to let them renew the lease? I'm in California so this is all new to me.

Mike Oberwise, permits are generally cheap to get. It probably cost the state more to process the permit than the fee covers.

Comment by Linda Scott on October 1, 2014 at 3:36pm

Derek, seriously $1 per acre per year in compensation for $thousands in lost royalties. Why do they even bother?

Comment by Derek O'Donnell on October 1, 2014 at 11:55am

It depends on what the lease says. They are usually paid $1 per acre shut-in per year. But each contract is different.

Comment by Linda Scott on October 1, 2014 at 11:40am

Can anyone explain to me how shut in payments are calculated? We had the majority of our wells shut in for most of this year, yet we are recieving pathetic payments as low as $11 on one well.
