My Question is : I'm fairly new to mineral rights - as I inherited it from my father in 2006 he received them from my grandfather, so the original leases date back to the early 50's.
My current situation is a claim from B/P- that they overpaid me by human error on their part -
by overlooking a new owner that came on track #47 back in 2003 . They are now withholding payments till the total of $72,000 is repaid from my current production. Is this legal and if so how many years can they go back. Funnier yet, this did not come to light till after the BIG OIL SPILL.
How these clowns run their books has seized to amaze me. Any HELP would be greatly appreciated.
