Is it common practice to be included in a pooling order when you’ve already leased your known minerals say 5 months ago and they are confirmed on-file? Is this a protective “blanket in case they missed something” type filing? Or did they actually miss something?
Native Exploration (CD2018-10090) just issued a pooling order that includes all the deceased children of a family, now being received by the heirs as certified mail on a minerals that were leased with Native back in May after a protracted heirship process back then. The envelope label says “known, unknown heirs and successors”.
Out of 90 listed, there are over 13 that apply to just this family and has now generated numerous phones to me of “what did we do wrong in May” . Seems like a lot of extra unnecessary effort for OCCC as well as the attorney’s office to generate.
Just let me know if this is a common practice necessitated by the legal process of oil/gas exploration or whether additional steps need to be taken on our end. Native is not replying to any inquires. Thanks everyone for the reply in advance…
