Q: Below is not true.....Those were wells that were supposed to be paying me....The city came in after we signed ....and
.............took over,,,,,Trucks run 24 7......Somebody getting paid & it aint us....
There are wells on city land because the mineral owner for that property, i.e., the city, has signed an oil and gas lease that allows those wells. The royalties will go the the mineral owner, i.e., the city.
A: If you are the mineral owner and the well is producing and the royalties are over the oil company's minimum for checks, you may be entitled to royalties. It's not possible to know what your rights and remedies are without a thorough analysis of your situation. Contact an oil and gas attorney in your state for assistance. The state bar association usually has a referral service that can help you locate an attorney.
