It is CRC’s policy to issue a payment once an account has accumulated $100.00 of production proceeds by CRC Company Number. If an account balance is less than $100.00, a payment will be issued when the account balance reaches $100.00, except for Long Beach Unit and Tidelands Unit Working Interest Owners where the minimum threshold is $25.00. Payments to Net Profit Interest Owners do not have a minimum threshold.

If you are a Working Interest Owner, then this usually means that the expenses of operating the well and the taxes associated with the well have exceeded the revenue being produced from the well. If you are a Royalty Interest Owner or an Overriding Royalty Interest (ORRI) Owner, then this usually means that taxes were applied to your owner account, (e.g., Ad Valorem Tax), and the taxes were more than the revenue. Example – CRC applies Ad Valorem Taxes to Owner Accounts twice a year, so six months of Ad Valorem Taxes will appear with one month of revenue.

(Owner’s Acreage/Total Acreage) x (Owner’s Interest in Owner’s Acreage) x (Royalty Interest) = Owner’s NRI

For Example: If a well is producing from 80 acres, your Lease covers 40 of those acres, you own 50% of the mineral rights on those 40 acres, and the royalty interest negotiated in your Oil, Gas and Mineral Lease is a 1/8 royalty interest, then your NRI calculation will look like the following:

(40 acres/80 acres) x (50%) x (1/8) = 0.03125000
