The Mineral Rights Podcast: Mineral Rights | Royalties | Oil and Gas | Matt Sands

May 30, 2024

In this episode we answer listener questions submitted by Heidi, Greg, Sarah, Nikki, Eric, and a listener who wishes to remain anonymous. This episode was filled with a wide variety of questions from the difference between MCF and MMBtu's and how to audit gas royalties, Lithium, leasing the minerals and surface rights, going through ancillary probate in New Mexico, wastewater disposal issues and earthquakes, getting information from a previous operator, and more.

Some of the listener questions in this episode are addressed in my Mineral Management Basics online course, from how to read a legal description, how to perform a title search, and how to identify nearby oil and gas activity. 

Thanks again to everyone who left a review or who submitted a question!  If you have a question about your minerals or royalties, send it to and we may feature it in an upcoming episode!
