Our staff uses in-house developed tools and projections for the productivity of the oil and gas in place, FUTURE DEVELOPMENT PACE OF THE AREA and existing and projected market conditions. Using this extensive information and analysis, we develop projections of future productivity of your asset to determine its value. Though by no means is this an exhaustive list of factors we also consider all of the following:
There are actually four different types of mineral ownership, each with certain rights and obligations.
- Mineral Interest ‐ An interest generated after the production of oil and gas, after a sale of property including mineral rights, or upon signing a lease.
- Royalty Interest ‐ An interest which occurs when mineral rights are leased. When a mineral interest owner (Lessor) enters into a mineral lease agreement with another party (Lessee), the Lessor retains a royalty interest.
- Working Interest ‐ A working interest is ownership in an oil and/or gas well which can be created when a mineral interest owner does not lease his/her minerals, but instead chooses to own an interest in the well being drilled. A working interest can also be created by contract called a Joint Operating Agreement. A working interest owner is responsible for his/her share of the costs associated with drilling and operating the well. They are also responsible for their share of liabilities associated with the well.
- Overriding Royalty Interest ‐ An ORRI differs from the previous types of ownership in that it does not provide ownership of any minerals under the ground, but rather ownership of a portion of revenue generated from oil and gas production.
A Mineral Interest owner can sell his/her mineral rights. Even if a mineral interest owner only owns a partial interest in the minerals, he/she can sell their portion of the mineral rights without the approval of any of the other owners.
A Working Interest owner can sell his/her interest in the well and mineral leases he/she owns.
A Royalty Interest owner can sell his/her royalty interest only. A royalty interest owner cannot sell or lease minerals.
An Overriding Royalty Interest owner can sell his/her ORRI. An ORRI owner cannot sell or lease minerals either.
A proper valuation of a mineral royalty interest will factor in the indications of value developed utilizing the market-based and income-based approaches. But a truly reliable valuation, however, is much more than the calculations that result in the final answer.
It is the underlying analysis of the mineral royalty and its unique characteristics that provide relevance and credibility to these calculations. This is why industry "rules-of-thumb" are dangerous to rely on in any meaningful transaction.
Such rules often fail to consider the specific characteristics of an interest and, as such, can fail to deliver insightful indications of value. A mineral royalty owner executing or planning a transition of ownership can enhance confidence in the decisions being made only through reliance on a complete and accurate valuation of the interest. There are many different factors that affect oil and gas royalties value and we assure all of our clients that we use as many factors as are relevant to each royalty interest. Each of these factors will play a role in the market value for selling oil and gas royalties.
Below are just a few of the key factors affecting oil and gas royalties value:
