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

Apr 22, 2020

Everyone will have seen the news by now that the price for WTI crude oil for May delivery went negative for the first time ever on April 20, 2020 closing at -$37.63 a barrel.  What we’d like to talk about today is the potential impact on royalty owners. 

We bring back attorney Spencer Cox with Burns Charest, LLP to talk about negative royalties and shut-in royalty provisions in oil and gas leases.  You may remember Spencer from Episode 13 where we talked about royalty audits, back pay, and litigation.
