Mineral right auditing

Question, Since. Oil companies are pooling a lot of wells from different mineral right owners, is there a way or right where they audit individual wells to be sure each owner is being paid what is their rightful share? The wording may. Be wrong so I hope I asked a question clearly.

You should check your lease which often contains a provision which gives the lessor the right to ask to review the books and records of the oil company. If your lease does not contain such provision, you likely still have such a right. In either case, you'll need to contact the oil company and ask to review the books and records. Often the lease limits the frequency of such reviews, however. If can have an accountant go with you to review the records. Most oil companies have someone who is in charge of client relations and they are typically very helpful in getting you the information.

Hope this helps.
