# 27-8n-6w

anything going in Sec 27 8N 6W? It was included in a Continental filing for Sec 35 and surrounding sections.

Sylvester, Good news! Continental plans a Multi-Unit Horizontal Well for sections 27 and 34-08N/06W. Between the two sections they have a total of 7 applications pending before the OCC, so it will probably take awhile for final approval. Click below to see the application for the Multi-Unit.

Sylvester, Your name is on the list of respondents of Continental's application for Drilling and Spacing Units made in the first part of June. You should have received a copy of it. If you read it very closely it mentions sections 27 and 34.

Thanks, Michael. I got the notice but don't know much about these things. How do I calculate my share of the production? I own 160 net acres in Section 27. None in 34, but 85 acres in Sec 26 and 20 in 35. I gather that these latter two are not as active.

The multi-units are pretty new to Oklahoma, only one completed so far. The first well allocated 47% of production to one section and 53% to the other. The way yours is described I'm thinking it will be 50-50, won't know for sure until the order is finalized. The section is 640 acres so you divide your 160 acres by 640 and multiply by your royalty %,< I'll assume 3/16 (.1875)> 160/640 = .250 X .1875 = .0469 this is your net royalty. A multi-unit could easily bring in \$60,000 per day, your section gets 50%. So .0469 X \$30,000 = \$1407 per day your share.

A good well could make you a wealthy man if you are not already! Good Luck. I haven't looked at the other sections but will let you know if I see anything interesting. Mike

OPINION ONLY, I AM NOT A PROFESSIONAL. THESE FIGURES COULD VARY GREATLY DEPENDING ON ACTUAL PRODUCTION AND PRODUCT PRICING.

Thanks, Michael. Looks good, but I am not spending the money quite yet! But this explains why I have been getting so many unsolicited offers to buy my mineral rights.

PS. With the prospect of litigation, sadly, I probably will not live to see the first check!

Sylvester, Maybe I am overly optimistic and I completely defer to Don's standing as an oil and gas professional but until I see otherwise I view that as a worst case scenario.

Michael: Is there a provision in Oklahoma law that sets forth the split in cases like this? Someone said it is based on the length of pipe in each section.

PS. At age 81, I probably can't wait too long! Remember Jarndyce v Jarndyce in Dickens' book.

Sylvester, I understand the split the same way. Not real familiar with Bleak House but I get the point.

I like Shakespeares quote about killing the lawyers. I know it is misunderstood but I still chuckle at the phrase.

You got 16 years on me, doesn't seem like much of a gap anymore!

In reading the filing for Sec 34 and 27, I note that Continental is asking the court to assess the costs of drilling and completing (against the royalty owners ?). That sounds like a lot off the top! And I thought the cost of drilling was the responsibility of Continental. Have to look at my lease agreement again.

That would only apply to those who opt to "participate" in the well. Those who lease for a royalty % have the details spelled out in the lease.
