IMPORTANT: Permanent damages are settled with the CLO and crop damages with the CLO tenant.
A plat showing the layout of the road and location and a copy of the intent to drill must be submitted. Unapproved copies will be accepted.
How Do I Obtain a Consent to Assignment?
Paragraph 14 of the CLO mineral 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 consent, provide the CLO with a copy of the assignment with the seals legible. There is a fee of $100 per lease, plus ten cents ($0.10) per net mineral acre.
The CLO will prepare a consent and return the document for execution. Once executed, return to the CLO. The CLO will process and return the executed original.
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 CLO 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 CLO will develop a value for the permit based on appraised value.
