Caple Royalty Services was created to bridge an industry experience and knowledge gap that non-oil and gas professionals cannot fill. Could it be that we are stuck in the old paradigm of viewing our oil and gas minerals, royalties and reserves as a personal asset or family legacy, instead of the financial asset they truly represent? It is one thing to consider a home or tract of land invaluable because generations grew up there, climbed in the trees and caught their first fish. Minerals are nothing more than a substance in the ground that is either worth drilling and producing or NOT. Your minerals may become more valuable or they may lose the majority of their value. This can change very fast, and that is the simple truth.


About every three years we find ourselves writing about an oil price collapse. Oil price collapses are usually tied to market conditions, where a slight over supply drives down prices dramatically. And those market conditions many times cause OPEC+ nations to start fighting about how they share the production cuts that will reverse the price collapse.

Enter Covid-19 and national economic disaster, and we have an unprecedented time in our country. Lower oil prices mean domestic drilling slows to a crawl, oil companies file bankruptcy, production declines all the while selling for half or less per barrel than just a month ago. And that’s where you come into the story. You are not only relegated to social distancing and shelter in place orders to help slow a pandemic, but also to a precipitous decline in your stock values and royalty payments that will likely be cut in half or more within a few months. All of our heads’ are spinning, right?
And even those of us with royalty in gas producing areas, who have suffered a long term drop in natural gas prices settling in the basement many years ago, guess what, those prices are going even lower than we’ve seen for several decades.

so, once again we revisit what this means for you, the mineral and royalty owner? Well, in case you are wondering, this would be a horrible time to sell, just to get that out there. But in times like these, some will have to choose something to sell, whether that be investments, real estate or minerals and royalty.
