A: First, you will need to be sure that the production is actually production from your mineral interests. Your lease may have been limited to certain depths and so the fact that there is a well in your area or even on your land that is producing is not necessarily determinative. Secondly, if your mineral interests are actually being produced and you still aren't getting any royalties, it is likely that there is a problem with your mineral title. Contact the division order department of the oil company and ask them to describe the problem to you. If you have trouble getting a response from them, you may need to contact an oil and gas attorney to investigate for you.
