How is the Overriding Royalty Interest (ORRI) structured in oil rights?


Answer by  Christian9247 (5042)

A person owns a share of the actual oil production. However it is a clear cut and dry number that you are paid as a shareholder but you don't have the option to increase, develop or even take in a bonus from anything advancements the oil company in question happens upon.

It all depends on what the contract states the overriding royalty interest is. If you have a current signed contract or considering signing on, read it thoroughly.
