In oil and gas investments, there are few opportunities that combine the degree of potential profitability with low or moderate risk quite like owning mineral rights. Acquiring and leasing mineral rights for development allows investors to enjoy the profits that come from successfully producing wells without having to shoulder the risk, expense, or liability that often accompany other types of oil and gas investments.
Investors often do not have an extensive understanding of mineral investments. Those who are new to oil and gas investments, and to mineral rights, in particular, may bring with them certain misconceptions that make pursuing these investments seem more complex than they are.
It is important to be educated regarding these types of investments. Understanding how mineral rights work, and how the right partner can mitigate your risk and maximize the profitability of your investments, can set you up to create significant cash flow and build generational wealth through wise mineral rights acquisitions.
Myth 1: Purchasing land in itself is sufficient to ensure ownership of mineral rights.
The first thing investors should understand is that mineral rights can be separated, or severed, from surface rights. One person might own the surface of the land, while another might possess the rights to the minerals (such as oil and gas) that are beneath the surface.
Obtaining the rights to minerals means that investors must have a clear understanding as to what they are purchasing, where their rights end and the landowners begin, and how they will navigate issues such as the surface owner’s wishes once the mineral rights are leased. The reality is that mineral rights ownership provides a significant advantage for investors because it frees them from liability concerns borne by the operator of the well(s).
Navigating these issues does not have to be a burden on investors, as long as they are working with the right partner. A mineral rights project, such as those offered through Redhawk, can allow investors to enjoy the profits of mineral investments without the worry of the legal ins and outs of obtaining the mineral rights in the first place.
Myth 2: Mineral rights investments can leave investors liable for damages and accidents.
Investors need not have concerns that mineral rights investments will leave them responsible for injuries, damages, compliance problems, or other surface-related issues arising from the extraction of the oil and gas underneath the surface.
The reality is that mineral rights leasing provides a significant advantage for investors because it frees them from liability concerns regarding issues such as damage to neighbors' lands, lack of compliance, and so forth. These risks are borne by the companies drilling the wells and overseeing the development of the project, not by the mineral rights owner who has leased the right to an operator to extract the oil and gas beneath the surface.
With the right managing partner, not only are investors free from liability related to the well, but they can be sure that potential contractual issues or confusing legal points have been ironed out in their favor so that they can enjoy maximum profits with a minimum of risk and worry.
Myth 3: Mineral rights investments are risky endeavors.
There may be other questions relative to the ownership of mineral rights and the low-level of risk benefiting mineral rights investments.
Any investment, including mineral rights, carries some degree of risk. For instance, an upfront lease bonus might be the only payment your receive if the operator doesn’t drill on your acreage, but your ownership does not expire which allows you to lease to another operator for another bonus. Over time, even the most abundant wells will eventually be depleted, but new oil field technology my bring them back to life and prosperity as we have seen in the Permian Basin and now in the STACK play in Oklahoma.
Over the long term, and compared to other types of oil and gas investments, mineral investments are a relatively low-risk endeavor. This is especially true when these types of investments are undertaken with the right investment partner to guide you.
An experienced investment partner can guide you through the process of leasing of mineral rights to ensure that you enjoy the most profit with the least amount of risk. Having a partner to stand alongside you can simplify getting involved in mineral investments.
Myth 4: It is difficult to know where to make the right mineral investments.
When deciding to pursue mineral rights investments, it is important to choose the right projects which to commit. The wrong ones can yield lower returns than you desire, or create complications that make it difficult to build wealth through mineral rights ownership.
The reality is that the right managing investment partner can identify and acquire the most lucrative mineral investments. Careful analysis by geologists and engineers aligned with a partner (like Redhawk) can find or identify acreage that is favorable to investors and more likely to return a higher yield over time.
If you want to pursue mineral rights investments, you can build wealth within a low to moderate risk environment. The key is to understand the reality behind these types of investments and then find a reliable investment partner to help you navigate these realities.
