Absolutely Not, All offers presented by are "Non Obligation" Offers to Owners for their Oil & Gas Interest(s). Additionally, receiving an offer does not obligate you to sell either.
Because of variations of oil & gas production compounded with market averages, majority of oil & gas royalties are determined off the monthly commodity averages. Most operators are 60-90 days back meaning your current months check is typically for production two months back (gas) or one month back (oil), however some oil & gas companies operate 90 days back but is always based on production and commodity pricing. Additionally, productions do vary and change because of the declines in oil & gas wells. There is only so much gas that can be recovered from reserves on a monthly basis and over the lifetime of the well.
1. A different company is responsible for paying you royalties and may be currently setting up your owner accounts.
2. The amounts you receive may not have accrued the minimal amount set forth by the Royalty Payor, for example Companies like Devon Energy Production Company, LP and Chesapeake Exploration, LP require that you must first have a minimum accrued amount of at least $100.00USD to receive a royalty check.
3. Your interest may be in suspense for legal reasons because you have not filed all appropriate paperwork with the Oil & Gas Company who is to pay you royalties, address change request, estate changes, or litigation.
4. The wells and/or field may not be producing gas or oil, please call the number on the last check stub you recieved. If you can't locate that number please feel free to contact us for further assistance and help.
