What are Mineral Rights?

Mineral rights are the legal rights to the minerals and deposits underneath the surface of a property.  This means that the owner of the mineral rights owns the rights to any oil and gas that could exist beneath the surface, whether or not they own the actual surface property.  If you own the minerals, you also have the right to access those minerals reasonably which usually allows the mineral owner to access the surface property to mine or drill for the oil, gas, coal, etc.

Can you own the mineral rights without owning the surface land?

Yes, you CAN own the mineral rights without owning the surface land.  Often times, land owners have sold off mineral rights without selling their land.  Others have sold their land but kept the mineral rights.  Throughout generations, these interests in the mineral rights have been passed down  and split into smaller portions multiple times.  Though it is possible to own the mineral rights and the surface land together as one property, the mineral rights have often times been severed and broken down into partial interests over the years.

How much are minerals worth?

Like real estate, its all about location.  Minerals are usually sold by the acre but can range in price from under a hundred dollars per acre to several thousand per acre depending on the location and the history of oil and gas production in the area.  Other factors that contribute to the price or value of mineral rights include whether or not the acres are leased and the terms of the lease.

Should I sell my mineral rights?

The problem with owning mineral rights is the uncertainty that goes along with ownership.  If the minerals are not currently producing, they are worth far less.  This can make it more difficult to sell your minerals since potential buyers will be taking a gamble on whether or not there will be producing oil and gas wells on that property in the future.  The truth is, even minerals surrounded by good wells may not be right for drilling and producing oil and gas, since the geology is subject to change. Holding on to your minerals means that you are taking the same gamble.

  • Daimler's yet-unnamed home battery unit looks to spoil Tesla's Powerwall party

    Daimler's yet-unnamed home battery unit looks to spoil Tesla's Powerwall partyWho says Elon Musk gets to have all the in-home battery fun? Certainly not the folks over at Mercedes’ parent company, Daimler AG, as the typically auto-focused manufacturer announced this week it would soon be elbowing its way into the energy storage game. Though currently nameless, the upcoming battery unit will reportedly be developed by Daimler subsidiary Deutsche Accumotive and, fittingly, are only available in Germany at this time. However, the company says it intends to take its new device international but didn’t share exactly what that would look like should it pan out. Under the hood, the Mercedes home battery packs an energy wallop, granting users the ability to combine all eight of its columnar 2.5kWh lithium-ion modules for ultimate capacity (i.e., 20kWh total capacity). The company says this level of capacity would allow users to gather excess solar energy, at little to no loss, for use at a later time. As of now, Daimler has partnered with solar technology and utility companies to sell and support its batteries while also pushing for the installation of solar panels to be used in conjunction with the device. Because of this unique install process, the exact price for the unit has yet to be officially announced. Daimler No stranger to the field of storage units, Accumotive has manufactured similar devices (on an industrial level) for nearly two years. While creating the initial designs, the company fully intended the system to be scalable in order for smaller units to find their way into households should the tech prove reliable. And what about that reliability? If a recent $500 million investment into a second factory is any indication from Daimler, it appears Accumotive’s battery is headed in the right direction. Related:  Tesla discontinues its original Powerwall amid rumors it’s gearing up for version 2.0 Though Tesla has certainly jump-started the market for in-home battery solutions, Daimler’s entrance into the industry shows just how much demand there actually is for such a device. As the installation of solar panels continues to rise nationwide, the need for a proper way to store all that energy is higher than ever and Daimler feels its scalable storage system is the answer.

  • Refining's silver lining loses luster at Exxon and Chevron

    A view of the Exxon Mobil refinery in Baytown, TexasExxon Mobil Corp and Chevron Corpon Friday reported their most dismal quarterly results in more than a decade on low oil prices and an oversupplied fuel market that hurt what had been lucrative refining margins. As crude prices slid 60 percent from mid-2014, large integrated energy companies have touted the virtues of a business model that both produces oil and refines it. Both Exxon and Chevron sought in Friday conference calls with investors and analysts to downplay the weakness in their refining units.
