Ordinary landowners sometimes lease their land to companies that extract oil, gas, or minerals from it. Unfortunately, these lessors do not have much insight into the records or billing processes of the extraction companies involved. The complaint for this class action alleges that XTO Energy, Inc. makes improper deductions from the natural gas royalties it owes to landowners in the Fayetteville Shale area of Arkansas.

Oil or Gas Well

It’s often difficult for those who lease rights to gas and oil companies to know what’s being taken out of their land, what is done to it, and how much they should be paid for the final product. The complaint for this class action claims that OXY USA, Inc. is underpaying royalties to the plaintiff.

DCP Midland Oil Pipeline

When a larger party owes payments to a much smaller party—one with fewer resources and less power—it is easy for the larger party to delay or manipulate those payments. Oklahoma law has attempted to provide some protection to holders of oil and gas leases in mandating that interest be added to untimely payments. The complaint for this class action claims that DCP Operating Company and/or DCP Midstream, LP have not paid the mandatory interest on delayed payments.

When you enter into a lease involving mineral rights on your land, how do you know how much money is due to you from the extracted oil and gas? Are you responsible to bear some of the costs of extraction or transportation? What evidence do you receive as to the amount of these costs? The complaint for this class action takes issue with EQT Production Company’s and Stone Energy Corporation’s figuring of costs deducted from royalties due on oil and gas leases on private land.

Sheridan Well

Plaintiff Kyle Alan Taylor leases gas wells on his Oklahoma land to Sheridan Production Company. According to the complaint for this class action, Sheridan is underpaying him. Taylor questions the volume, price, deductions, and value of the gas and other products from the wells. At issue are amounts paid for helium, residue gas, natural gas liquids, and drip concentrate.
