Check Stub Compliance

Oklahoma Statute 52 O.S. §570.12 requires a lessee and/or operator to submit certain information with each royalty payment made to the interest owner. The Land Office is an interest owner. These requirements are as follows:

  1. Lease or well identification;
  2. Month and year of sales included in the payment;
  3. Total barrels or MCF attributed to such payment;
  4. Price per barrel or MCF, including British Thermal Unit (BTU) adjustment of gas sold;
  5. Total amount attributed to such payment of severance and other production taxes, with the exception of windfall profit tax;
  6. Net value of total sales attributed to such payment after taxes are deducted;
  7. Owner’s interest, expressed as a decimal, in production from the property;
  8. Owner’s share of the total value of sales attributed to such payment prior to any deductions;
  9. Owner’s share of the sales value attributed to such payment less owner’s share of the production and severance taxes; and
  10. A specific listing of the amount and purpose of any other deductions from the proceeds attributed to such payment due to the owner upon request by the owner. (The CLO requests this information for all check stubs.)
