Thank you for helping us help mineral owners with post production deductions!

This year NARO has been hearing the frustration of our membership over Post Production Deductions (PPD).  Nationally this issue has risen to a concerning level. 

At National Convention in October 2016 it was announced that a Post-Production Deduction (PPD) Committee had been formed.

The questions that follow will, hopefully, cover all of your deduction situations.  It is very important that our committee is able to review leases (and the corroborating account statements)  that mineral owners feel have excessive or prohibited deductions.  Feel free to redact any information that you are not comfortable sharing.  

Please send leases and recent account statements to Cynthia Simonds, NARO National Development Director at or NARO, PPD Committee c/o Cynthia Simonds 15 W. 6th Street Suite 2626 Tulsa Ok 74119.  If you have multiple wells, send information for each well and feel free to take the survey for each well/operator with different deduction practices or categories.

For questions about this project please call 800-558-0557.

Please submit the survey no later than February 15, 2017.  Thank you for assisting NARO with this very important issue.
