Below are samples of a recent curative project featuring title and royalty analysis. The example was taken from the title of a 907 acre lease which was held by the production of several stripper wells drilled in the 1950s. At the time the lease was taken the leasehold was part of a 3,000 plus acre tract. A non-participating royalty reservation was made during a partition subsequent to the lease. Long story short – the curative document covering 15 or so tracts was about 200 pages in length. Probably my most challenging title experience ever.
