Protecting Your Right To Oil And Gas Royalties

Given the sums of money involved, it is not surprising when disputes arise over oil and gas royalties. A single decimal point in a division order can make a significant difference in the amount of royalties owed by the producer to the beneficiaries of the lease. Disputes can arise between the mineral rights owner and the operator, or between multiple beneficiaries of a lease (pooled units). Royalty disputes often involve complicated issues of fact and law, so you should seek advice from a knowledgeable lawyer.
