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

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.

Email me at derekod57@gmail.com if youd like so we can talk more about this, I check my email far more often than this website. In short, sometimes companies will apply for permits months before they begin to lease because the permitting process can take so long. What Sec/Twn/Rng are you in?

I am hoping someone can explain why several oil companies in my area have recently been applying for permits to drill when they do not have the lands leased where these wells are to be drilled. There are also several cases where more than one oil company has applied for a permit and spacing order in the same sections. Some have also not notified the owners as required by WY statute. This activity seemed to accelerate at the end of August of this year. Anyone have an explanation for this behavior? I live about 4 miles north of the Weld County, Colorado border, in Laramie County, 12/63. Thanks,

As Gary mentioned - often times when the companies cannot reach an agreement, then one company will utilize COGCC process to proceed with drilling a well and it could be Synergy's lease interest being pooled.  It is important for you to go through and figure out what is going on with your lease and interest, especially before you send in any money to anyone.  Many companies send out blanket letters these days in Weld County, and there is a distinct possibility that the request for the money is not directed to you and additionally is not appropriate for you to send in.

Jan R I sent you a message.

Gary, Jason, and Jenna; I found out some more information. The actual well will not be on our lease, it will be just west of our lease and will be drilled horizontally into our area. Does this make a difference in the reason for the $6000 payment? Since Synergy has the lease, wouldn't they take care of it all? I tried to read the Interests of Parties in Costs and Production. The legalize is beyond me!! However, my brother is looking for an attorney to help sort this all out. Anyone know a good attorney in the Greeley/Ft Collins area?
