Lease to a company that doesn't drill

If I sign a lease with one company and they don't drill but another company does and begins producing do I get paid?

Mr. Groniger,

Yes, there are many instances where you can lease to a company that is not a drilling company. You should have received division orders and should be getting paid once a company establishes production.

Mr. Groniger,

The answer to your question depends entirely on the factual situation. There is just not enough information for anybody to make an informed answer.

Leasing to a non-operator does not preclude you a share of production, but the facts will have to speak for themselves.
