Frequently Asked Questions

How do I change my address?
Please notify our office in writing of your change of address.  Please include your old address, new address, owner number and phone number.

When are royalty payments issued?
Royalty payment checks are typically issued by the 25th of each month.

Why does my royalty payment vary from month to month?
Many factors contribute to your payment. Changing market conditions may cause fluctuations in commodity prices on a monthly basis, while mechanical or operational problems or routine maintenance may temporarily affect production and cause downtime. Also, over time, production volumes from an individual well will experience a natural decline. So, while this may be offset with additional wells being drilled on your property, the decline in production volumes from individual wells is inevitable. Also, regulatory or contractual changes or seasonal conditions can affect the amount of your payment. If you have reason to believe an error in payment has occurred, please contact us at the e-mail address or phone number provided on the contacts page.

When and why are royalty payments suspended?
For your protection, payments may be suspended in the event of a title dispute, assignment of interest, notice of death, transfer or sale of property, or unknown address. You can usually prevent such an inconvenience by promptly notifying us of any change regarding your interest.

What is an “owner number” and what is its purpose?
Trendwell assigns each of its interest owners a unique owner number for internal identification purposes.  Please include your owner number when communicating or corresponding with us.

How do I make a change and/or transfer my interest?
Because there are many different factors and/or documents that may be required, please contact our office to discuss the details of your situation.
