FAQs

What is a Division Order?

A division order is an instrument that describes the property, the operator, the legal description, the owner’s remittance address and tax ID information, if known, as well as the owner’s decimal interest in the property.

What do I do with the Division Order?

The owner is asked to sign and return the division order. We use this information to remit royalty proceeds to the owner if Nine Point Energy has the disbursement responsibility.  If you have any questions about your division order, you should contact your attorney.

An owner should be sure to review the division order to include the following:

  • accurate legal description and ownership interest;
  • correct name spelling;
  • where the revenue checks should be sent if different than mailing address;
  • taxpayer identification number.

Where do I send my division order or other documents relating to change of ownership or a change to owner status?

To locate and collect unclaimed funds, please visit the National Association of Unclaimed Property Administrators (NAUPA) at   www.unclaimed.org.

How is my owner interest calculated?

Your proportionate share of production, or ownership interest, is calculated by multiplying your net acres in the drilling unit by the royalty percentage agreed upon in your Oil and Gas Lease.

LEASING INFO

Nine Point Energy is committed to being fully transparent with our owners, which includes providing you with a full understanding of what it means to lease with us.

A mineral lease is a legally binding agreement between Nine Point Energy, the lessee, and a mineral rights’ owner, the lessor, giving us the right to extract and produce the owner/lessor’s oil or natural gas. Property or land ownership does not necessarily reflect mineral ownership. In many cases, the original owner may have sold the surface rights, but retained the mineral rights.  Mineral ownership can be ascertained by conducting a title search at your county clerk and recorders office or the private title abstract company in your area. Nine Point Energy will also conduct a title search to confirm ownership.

Nine Point Energy typically provides an initial bonus payment to the owner/lessor.  Once a well begins producing, owners may receive recurring royalty payments based on the agreed about royalty percentage in the mineral lease. The lease is generally in effect for the duration of production and work over periods.

If you have any questions about leasing, please contact us.
