Delaware Basin Mineral Rights
The Delaware Basin Resources
The Delaware Basin constitutes roughly 10,000 square miles, or 6.4 million acres. The basin extends from the southern New Mexico counties of Eddy and Lea, southward into the west Texas counties of Reeves, Loving, Ward, Winkler, Pecos, and Culberson.
Over the course of time, the Delaware Basin was host to reefs built by microbial organisms, algae, and sponges. These organisms, as well as deep water inputs supplied by the Hovey Channel, developed carbonate buildups that formed a higher elevation area, separating the deep-water deposits and the shallow water.
The Delaware Basin is approximately 2,000 feet deeper than the Midland Basin. This increase in depth has caused, over a long period of time, the sediment to experience over twice as much pressure during burial. This is a leading factor in the stratigraphic discontinuities between the two sub-basins.

There are three primary types of Mineral Rights. Momentum Minerals, we can help you determine what type of rights you own:
Mineral rights grant ownership to all of the oil and gas lying below the surface of the property, as well as the right to explore, drill, and produce oil and natural gas on that property or to lease such rights to a third party. Typically, mineral rights are perpetual.
Overriding Royalty Interests (ORRI)
Overriding royalty interests are royalty interests that burden the working interests of a lease and represent the right to receive a fixed percentage of production or revenue from production from a lease. Overriding royalty interests are non-perpetual, and the right to develop minerals reverts to the mineral owners when the initial lease term expires.
Nonparticipating Royalty Interest (NPRI)
A non-participating royalty interest owner has a right to all or a portion of the royalty from gross production, but does not have the right to execute a lease, receive a bonus or any delay rentals. An NPRI owner also does not have the right to produce the minerals by himself, and they are not responsible for the operational costs associated with production or drilling. An NPRI has fewer rights than a ‘regular’ mineral rights owner as they do not have the right to make decisions related to the execution of leases. Other mineral rights owners generally participate in at least one of the previously mentioned activities.
