"James, those three wells are all drilled and waiting on completion. The only well on the unit completed and selling gas is the #5H. There are still three open permits not yet drilled: 1HB, 2H & 4H."

BP America Koala Gas Unit

Does anyone have any information regarding BP America activity in the Koala Gas Unit. I have been getting some rather startlingly high offers to buy my mineral interest in the unit, so I'm curious as to what is happening there. I heard early this year that BP America was drilling #3H, but abandoned it. Now I see that they have requested another permit for #3H. I also heard they they started drilling #5H back in March or April, but have not seen a completion report on it. As of this week they…See More

James,

Do you own 100% of the minerals in the unleased tract? If so, it should not be included in the unit. If not, if the operator has leased any of the other interests in the tract, it can pool the entire tract.

The question then becomes - is the well on the tract or another tract in the unit? If the well is on your tract, you are an unleased co-tenant and am entitled to your entire share of the production after pay-out minus operating expenses. So, if you have a 1/2 interest in a 100 acre tract and the well is on that tract, you are entitled to 50% of the well's production after pay-out minus operating expenses. But if the well is not on your tract, you are not entitled to anything from it.

It is true that operators' accounting is certainly going to have the operator over the unleased co-tenant but "funny math" will only get the operator so far. The State doesn't offer any specific protections for this situation above what the law already affords - suits for conversion, accounting, etc.

Feel free to message me personally if you would like to discuss this further.

Best,

Eric C. Camp
