Royalty & Interest Owner Overview
Within this section of the Whiting website you will find contact information and several forms that will help us serve owners more efficiently. There is a difference between Working Interest Owners and Royalty Interest Owners.
A Working Interest Owner or WI owner is a participant in the drilling process and a partner in the well. They are responsible for their portion of the costs of drilling and production costs of a well. Should the well be successful they will receive their appropriate portion of revenue based on production. They incur all costs and liabilities.
A Royalty Interest Owner or RI owns a portion of the minerals in the drilling unit. This is different from a land owner or stock holder. Royalty owners receive an appropriate portion of the revenue from a producing well based on amount of minerals they own. They do not share in the cost or liabilities of the well.
