It is not unusual for royalty interests to be underpaid. Underpayments can cost royalty owners very significant amounts of money. Underpayments can happen because a producer pad production costs with excessive pipeline charges and “marketing” charges. Not all pipeline charges and marketing charges should be paid by the royalty owner. Sometimes producers try to charge royalty owners for oil or gas lost between the well head and the refinery. Other times, the producer can underpay royalty interest by miscalculating oil and gas royalties either intentionally or by mistake.
