Lease royalties, generally speaking

What is the highest royalties anyone should expect? Is there a range?

If a speculator wants to drill, what is a fair, good, & “high” rate?

What rate is a rip off or “sucks”, i.e., “too low”

Just fishing for a general idea, thanks

Your question is difficult to answer. The royalties range in amounts due to the performance of the reservoir. Different reservoirs perform differently due to their porosity, permeability, the method of completion on the well, the choke size, the product produced, etc.

Not sure what your other questions pertain to. Leasing, purchasing? They are too vague.

For leasing purposes, great is 1/4th royalty or 25%, sucks is 1/8th or 12.5%
