When leasing oil or gas rights I have always received a division order with everyone’s name and percentage that has an interest in the well.
I have inherited an interest in a producing oil well from my Mom and requested from the oil company a list of the division orders. They said due to right of privacy they can only supply my percentage. I have never ran into this before,
I have received one division order just lately that was actually being calculated wrong which was easy In my case to figure out Since I had everyone’s percentages of all the royalty owners.
So is there a privacy law that now restricts division orders of others being seen by anyone other then your percentage?
If so, where would that privacy law be documented concerning division orders?
It is just so strange after all these years to come across this, maybe I have just been lucky…
