Paragraph 14 of your lease states “No transfer or assignment of this lease, or any part thereof, shall be valid, or convey any right to the assignee without the consent in writing of the Commissioners of the Land Office.”
In order to obtain our consent, provide Philip with a copy of your assignment with the seals legible. There is a fee of $25.00 per assignment, per lease. Philip will prepare a consent and return it to you for execution. Return the executed consent to Philip. He will present it to the Secretary for signature and return the executed original to you.
What is the Process for Obtaining a Seismic Permit?
The application fee is $200.00 per permit. A separate permit is required for each county. If the Land Office owns the surface, the permit must state the going rate per shot, mile or acre. If acreage is leased, grantee must obtain approval of the mineral lessee. If acreage is unleased, the Land Office will develop a value for the permit based on appraised value.
