In January 2019 we signed a lease for the mineral rights we own. The lease was signed with a land management company. An oil company has been drilling on the sections that we own since October 2018. We have discovered that the landman that we signed the lease with has not sold the lease and is holding it. Apparently the oil company has yet to recognize the interest and the landman has not entered into a JOA with the oil company. We need help trying to assess the motives of the landman and why he would pay a bonus for signing a lease but then not sell the lease or enter into a JOA with the oil company that has been pumping for almost a year. Thank you for any information anyone can provide to help us understand the situation we are in.
