How do I find my oil mineral operator/company?

We bought our house in Texas two years ago, but we haven’t received any royalty check yet. How/where do I find out my oil/ mineral operator?

Thank you.

Are you sure you received the mineral rights along with the surface rights? Sometimes they were severed years ago.

Are you sure there are producing wells within those mineral acres (if yours)?

Did the previous owner get payments? If so, contact them to find out who the operator was. You would need to contact the operator and ask what legal documents they need in order to put you into pay status. Those documents would also have to be filed at the county courthouse in the county of the minerals.

You would need to list a county and a legal location for anyone to point you in the correct direction.
