Hi Denver, the energy company already had the rights from way back, surface use then mineral, but guess primary passed and didn't will to anyone so they did a search for all heirs and my Mom's generation was as far as they had to go.. all in all as I say, small share of a small area of land, and most of the heirs had already signed amended lease before they found us.

 1st, I did say that I would sell my royalties for $50,000 per acre.

 But I do not think any investor would ever pay that amount.

 So, a fair offer is somewhere between $5,000 and $50,000.

 Probably more like between $5,000 and $18,000 (see below)


 Assuming wet gas area and one producing well per 200 acres of the PU ...

 1 well in a 200 acre PU or

 3 wells in a 640 acre PU or

 6 wells in 1,280 acre PU

 are all roughly the same royalties per acre.


 We can estimate between $300 to $500 per acre per month for the first year.

 That is $3,600 to $6,000 per acre total royalties the first year.

 Then another $3,600 to $6,000 per acre total royalties for the next 4 years.

 Then another $3,600 to $6,000 per acre total royalties for next 7 years.

 Note rapidly decreasing royalties and the well(s) must last 12 years.


 Total Royalties is $10,800 to $18,000 per acre over the entire life of the well(s). 


 Selling Royalties for $5,000 per acre is about 50% of the low end (only 27% of the high end).

 50% cash-in-hand for you today and maybe 50% royalties eventually for the investor.

 If you need the guaranteed cash today then consider offers over $5,000.


 I decided that I want 100% of my royalties and will risk waiting for a well. 

 $18,000/acre royalties over 12 years could be lower taxes than a huge lump sum payment.


 Decisions - Decisions ...
