I'm still new to leasing my minerals, what I thought I was getting into with a good oil lease--I found out later that it was actually a broker that was contracted with an oil company operator. He was really nice and I'm not sure if I did the right thing in signing a oil lease with him because later on when I asked about the oil company--because the lease came from a completely different company, he said he forgot to tell me he was contracted with the operator. Is this normal? Then later the lease fell through--he said the oil company operator stopped leasing in my Range.
How do I really know who is really with an oil company or just contracting with them to do their leases? and do they flip leases without people knowing? I've heard other companies do that alot. It just seems shady and confusing at times to try and sort through whats true and what isnt.
