I think some clarification on what exactly is going on is needed. Generally, there are multiple levels of involvement here. There is a physical land owner(s) and a mineral owner(s). They may not be the same. An oil and gas company has to pay a surface owner a certain amount for usage. (driving truck, making roads, storage containers, damage, reclamation, etc.)
They also have to pay out a royalty to the MINERAL owner at least 12.5% on the production they generate. (This is where you'll get seriously taken advantage of if not careful) So, for every $1mil of oil, gas, butane etc they produce from your well, you get $125,000. That's completely made up, but you get the idea. (It gets more complicated with pooling) Be aware, ALL aspects of a lease can be negotiated. If a company comes to you and says "this is a 'standard lease' they are manipulating you.
You can also get a signing bonus just for signing a lease based on acreage. This goes to the mineral owner.
In your post it is not clear who you are or what you own.
