I currently have minerals in two Oklahoma counties, Atoka and Jefferson. The Atoka minerals have a producing gas well and the Jefferson minerals were leased until this past year. I receive regular checks from Bravo-Arkoma for the gas well and was paid for the lease. But I've never had any type of deed for either. They were just part of an inheritance after my father's probate.
I would like to transfer these minerals to my great nephew as a high school graduation gift. If I'm correct in my research, I only need to file quitclaim deeds in both counties. Is that correct? And should I notify Bravo-Arkoma so they'll know where to send future checks?
Thanks so much,
