How are royalties apportioned to different regions within a section?
Consider the hypothetical situation where one owns rights within one quarter (160 acres) of a section (640 acres), and a well is drilled within a DIFFERENT quarter (also 160 acres) of the same section. Please explain how the operator applies their knowledge of the well location and the route of any laterals to apportion the oil and gas withdrawn. How can one determine whether or not they are receiving their proper portion? Thanks in advance for informing me!
