We have been waiting to receive our 1st royalty check, with production being recorded for
oil & gas production from Jan - March 2019 on ODNR. So I called Gulfport and
I was told by the Landman at Gulfport (that took over from the original landman) two very disappointing facts:
that we are NOT the owners of the mineral rights, that the mineral rights belong to the surface owners
that Gulfport moved our wells over, so that they are NOT part of our property -
which belonged to our Great Grandmother.
My questions for you is
Does this sound accurate? as the landman did do a title search and all the legwork.
Does this occur often and should we just go along with it?
Should I contact my lawyer and fight this, or will it cost me more than it’s worth?
Where can I go for assistance with this devastating news? Thanks All!
