Division Orders

Upon inheritance of mineral rights or royalty rights can the division orders be requested from the operating company? We do not have a current copy for some of the properties. On some of the WI interests there seems not to be any income, that we can tell. Would there be a reason for no activity when the wells have been in production? Also, do the interests transfer to the heirs without changing terms?

I appreciate any info you can provide

If a lease is held by production, then the terms of your ancestor’s lease (or pooling order) would apply.
