Are there any books which can explain the workings of the natural gas industry, and explain everything that a mineral interest owner should know? topics ranging from leases, terms, formulas used to calculate payment etc.
I like this one I found at the Shreveport Broadmoor Library, covers a lot of what you mention:
"Oil and Gas Law" by John S. Lowe
LA 343.007 (in the "Louisiana Collection")
Its focus is on Arkansas, but many of the same princilples hold true.
