The operator now knows that our minerals were overlooked, but only offered $1,000/nma bonus to lease them. We have been offered $7,000/nma bonus for minerals in the same NM county that have not been drilled yet. A $1,000 bonus for minerals (although a very small amount of them) included in 4 wells that have been producing since 2016 & 2017 seems too small.
These minerals had been leased, but the lease expired when the wells were drilled due to a limiting shut in clause in the original lease. When I emailed to ask if there was interest in leasing them again, I got the $1,000/nma offer. I then discovered that the minerals were included in a 320 acre pool that had 4 wells drilled & producing on it. I'm wondering what my options are. Any suggestions?
