Yes. Provided your account is in good standing and your payment balance meets minimum thresholds there should be no change in your payment delivery. Future communications will convey any changes to this process.

No, there will be no change to payment delivery methods. Payment processing will continue as in prior months. Future communications will convey any changes to this process.

Continue to contact the same organization as you have in the past.

No, at this time we request that you continue to contact Anadarko regarding your interest. Future communications will convey any changes to this process.

No, there will be no immediate change to the format or layout of your check. There will be no change to the check processing date, nor will there be any changes to your owner number, or specific lease information contained within. Future communications will convey any changes to this process.

At this time it is uncertain when, if, or what changes will be made. Future communications will convey any changes to this process.

Expect future communications to appear on https://oxyroyalty.com and/or https://www.anadarko.com/Owner-Relations.

At this time, there is no need to establish an Occidental account. You will continue to go to https://www.anadarko.com/Owner-Relations for your royalty information. Future communications will convey any changes to this process.

Changes to your Anadarko account should be directed to Anadarko and changes to your Occidental account should be directed to Occidental. Future communications will convey any changes to this process.

Not at this time. For now, JIB billing for Anadarko and Occidental remains unchanged. Future communications will convey any changes to this process.

At present, there is no need for you to change your account. Future communications will convey any changes to this process.

Changes to your Anadarko account should be directed to Anadarko and changes to your Occidental account should be directed to Occidental.

Direct all requests for historical records from an Anadarko account to Anadarko and from an Occidental account to Occidental.

Please contact https://www.oxyroyalty.com, and we will assist you in determining that information.

If you own royalty or working interests with both Occidental and Anadarko, then each such interest will continue to be managed by the company that managed it prior to the acquisition. For example, if you had a royalty interest payable by Anadarko and a working interest operated by Occidental, then questions regarding your royalty interest should be directed to Anadarko and questions regarding your working interest should be directed to Occidental.

At this time, neither Occidental Owner Relations nor Anadarko Owner Relations will be able to provide assistance regarding interests managed by the other company on companies historically operated by the other company. Communication of changes to this policy are forthcoming.

​​ Payment Information

Provide Land Administration with a copy of the conveyance document establishing joint tenancy/ownership that has been recorded in the county and state where the minerals reside by emailing owner.relations@anadarko.com or call 800-359-1692, option 3 and option 5, Fax 877-272-4685.

Yes, you may download the EFT form located in the forms section.

Note: You will continue to receive your check detail by mail (unless you have elected to go paperless through www.oildex.com.

Download the attached EFT form located in the forms section. Make necessary changes, sign and date the form. Include a voided check copy for the account you wish to have it deposited in. Fax completed form to 832-636-5048 or mail it to our Woodlands address [Attn: ESM (BA Group-Timberloch)].

Checks are issued and mailed on or about the 25th and/or the last day of each month. If either of these days falls on the weekend or holiday, Anadarko will strive to issue checks on the preceding business day. Direct deposits are generally made within 2 business days after the royalty checks are issued. Oil revenue is normally paid within 30-60 days following the sales month. Natural gas revenue is normally paid within 60-90 days following the sales month.

An owner must accumulate a minimum balance in their account of $100 in order for a check to be issued. The minimum may be changed to $25 when a Change Release form is completed and submitted. This form is located in the forms section. Note that we have a Minimum Release each year in September to all accounts with a balance of at least $10 (or $0.01 for Wyoming).

Many factors may cause your payment to vary, including but not limited to, market conditions, suspended payments, adjustments (including any overpayments or underpayments), fluctuating commodity prices, regulatory or contractual changes, production volumes, seasonal conditions and routine maintenance or operating issues which may affect the volumes produced from a well during a given time period.

This can occur because ownership between family members is not equal, because one party has not provided Anadarko with a Tax ID (TIN) or other required information, or because some family members may own interest in other properties in addition to those commonly owned. Other factors possibly causing variances between family member check amounts may be related to stale dated checks, returned checks and/or address changes.

Due to potential postal delays, a revenue check may arrive a few days late on occasion. If you have not received a check by the 10th business day following the date of the check, please contact the Owner Relations hotline, option 2. You may also sign up for Direct Deposit (EFT) to eliminate these kinds of delays.

Anadarko does not place an expiration date on revenue checks; however, please contact the Owner Relations hotline, option 2, prior to cashing a stale dated check to verify the check has not been voided. The check states you have 180 days; however, the stale dated check void process may not have been run yet so the check may still be valid.

This occurs due to special marketing arrangements, unit calculations or other contractual agreements. The value is still proportionally correct. For questions about your decimal percentage, contact owner.relations@anadarko.com or call 800-359-1692.

​​ General Terms

Royalties represent the interests retained by lessors under an oil, natural gas and mineral lease. Funds are payable on these interests based upon the value of a percentage of the minerals produced from the lease.

Please call the Owner Relations hotline at 800-359-1692, option 2, or email us at owner.relations@anadarko.com .

Royalty payments may be suspended (or held in suspense) until certain conditions are satisfied. Generally, royalty payments may be suspended for several reasons including, but not limited to, the following: a missing Tax ID, insufficient address, assignment of interest, notice of death, lack of documentation/title confirming ownership, or disputes involving proper apportionment or ownership of interests in the minerals produced. Also, please note that revenue checks are issued only when the revenue amount due exceeds $100. Please see What is minimum pay amount? for more information on minimum release payments.

Amounts due are accumulated and are released when the matter in question has been resolved and all related documents have been received and processed. All payments are retroactive to the date of suspension.

​​ Transfer Information

The types of documents that can change ownership on a real property account include (but are not limited to): a deed, title, a court order or a death certificate. In some cases, there may be a need to file more than one type of document to complete the process. The documents must be recorded in the county where the minerals are located.

If you have any questions about the preparation or filing of a document, you may want to consult with an attorney, real estate professional or title company.

The requirements of ownership transfer due to death vary by state and are dependent on whether or not the deceased had a Last Will and Testament. You may want to contact an attorney to advise you how to proceed.

Provide Land Administration with a copy of the applicable portion of the Trust document that identifies the successor Trustee, the duties and the powers of the Trustee, and the circumstances leading to the replacement of the Trustee. Complete and submit a Change of Address form if needed.

Interest is transferred to the remaindermen. The death certificate and a copy of the deed noting the life estate should be submitted to Land Administration. The remaindermen addresses and tax identification number(s) are required as well.

The amount of time that it takes to complete a transfer depends on the complexity of the issue. For information on your transfer, contact owner.relations@anadarko.com or call 800-359-1692.

​​ Unclaimed Property

Each state makes an effort to locate rightful owners of production revenues, holding the funds until the owner is found. To locate and collect unclaimed funds, please visit the National Association of Unclaimed Property Administrator's (NAUPA) website.

Each state has abandoned property or escheat laws that require the reporting of funds held for its residents. Once abandoned property has reached the state's required dormancy period, it is paid to the state of the owner's last known address.

​​ Joint Interest Billing (JIB)

If your net revenues exceed your net expenses, a check will be issued to you with your payment being made around the 15th of each month.

Clearing title is the process of verifying that you own the interest. Title is the legal right or evidence of the legal right to property.

Royalty is calculated based on the following:

For example, if you own 40 net mineral acres, the spacing unit is 640 acres and the royalty interest is 1/8, then your royalty interest in the well is (40/640) x 1/8 =0.0078125.

Please include your unique JV Owner number along with the month and year of the invoice payment being made (i.e. 062014JV12345601). If you are submitting a payment that is over or under the invoiced amount, you would also want to include an explanation for the difference (i.e., you don’t agree with charges billed under a specific venture/AFE).

​​ Tax and Levy Information

Your 1099 Miscellaneous Tax forms will be mailed no later than Jan. 31. If the 31st falls on Saturday or Sunday, the IRS allows for mailing the following Monday.

Some costs associated with selling a product are shared by all owners including royalty owners. WI owners share in those same costs plus the cost of exploration, drilling, completing, equipping and operating a well.

If you still believe that your lease indicates you should not have deductions, please contact Land Administration Dept. at owner.relations@anadarko.com or 800-359-1692.

The 1099 shows the gross amount before taxes and other deductions as required by the IRS. In order to help you reconcile this gross amount to the total of your actual payments received, we include a reconciliation on the back of your 1099 showing the gross amount, taxes and deducts and the net amount. The net amount should tie to your total payments received for the year. If you have questions as to how this information should be presented on your tax return, please contact a tax professional.

Net can sometimes be more than the gross due to reimbursement of Severance Tax or other adjustments. In this case, you will notice a negative tax amount on the reconciliation on the back of your 1099.

A levy is a notice issued by a taxing authority (usually the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), California Franchise Board, Child Support agency, Veterans Land Board, etc.) which states that a taxpayer owes overdue taxes or payments and that proceeds or wages Anadarko normally pays to the taxpayer should be directed to the taxing authority or agency until the levy is released by the agency.

Anadarko cannot release the levy/garnishment against your account without written notification from the agency garnishing your account.

You will need to contact the agency directly. Once you obtain a Release of Levy from the taxing authority you may e-mail it directly to CRM-Revnue@anadarko.com or mail it to:

Anadarko Petroleum Corporation
Attn: Revenue Owner Relations – Levy & Garnishments
PO Box 1330
