Royalties are the mineral owner’s proportionate share of production as reserved in an oil and gas lease.

The company assigns each interest owner a unique six-digit number to distinguish you from the company’s other interest owners. When communicating with the company, please include your owner number to enable us to more quickly and accurately respond to your request.

Yes, we do. Please complete the Direct Deposit Form in full and include a voided check and either email to land@mesquite-energy.com or mail to Division Order Dept. Pennzoil Place, 700 Milam Street, Suite 600, Houston, TX 77002. Please be sure to fill out the form completely remembering to sign at the bottom. Incomplete forms will not be set-up.

Unfortunately, once we change an owner’s account over to Direct Deposit payments, our system no longer generates paper copies of detail to be mailed out. At this point, you will need to register on our Owner Relations website to either access your monthly revenue details or set your account up to have ENVERUS e-mail these details to you monthly. You can contact ENVERUS at 855-301-5241 or email ormssupport@enverus.com to receive a username and password to access this site. Please have your owner number available when contacting ENVERUS

The company issues royalty payments to royalty owners once a month, normally on or around the 25th of each month. The most common reason is that your account has not reached your minimum pay status. If your monthly payment is below $25, the company holds that money in a suspense account until it exceeds $25 at which point we send a check. Generally, revenue held in suspense is released annually in December regardless of the amount held.
Occasionally, payments are held due to matters which create uncertainty as to ownership, such as a notice of death, change of address, transfer of property, assignment of interest or legal dispute. Payments due are accumulated in a suspense account and released when the matter affecting ownership has been resolved. Inquiries regarding suspense balances must be communicated in writing to our Royalty Accounting Department.

Our revenue checks are non-negotiable after 90 days. If you do not deposit your check within 90 days of issuance, we must void and re-issue the payment. Please return the check to our Royalty Accounting Department (700 Milam Street, Suite 600, Houston, TX 77002) and we will take the necessary steps to include this amount (with full detail) on your next revenue check.
