We understand there are financial opportunities or needs that sometimes call for the sale of a portion of your producing and non-producing mineral and royalty interests.

Our primary objective is to obtain the highest price possible for your interests. We evaluate your property for marketability and develop a marketing package that CRS presents to hundreds of active buyers across the U.S. Our buyers are invited to make competitive offers by a set deadline.

While our typical marketing and closing time is sixty days to obtain TRUE MARKET VALUE for our clients, we have recognized the need for a streamlined version of the marketing process for sellers who face a financing deadline. CRS has developed a pool of select buyers, who are prepared to pay you more than your best verifiable written offer, and pay our commission, so you can keep all the sale proceeds. Many times, closings can be accelerated to ten business days from execution of a Purchase and Sale Agreement.


The single most challenging mineral transaction that you will ever make is the leasing of your minerals for exploration and development. If you thought you got it all figured out during the last leasing boom, guess what, the game has changed, and will continue to evolve as oil and gas litigation brings new interpretations of mineral conveyances and lease provisions. You may have to live with your oil and gas lease for many decades, so you want to structure your lease terms in a wise manner.

Caple Royalty Services uses our experience and expertise to maximize your lease trade by:

  • Making sure that all the potentially interested exploration companies can make offers for your lease
  • Negotiating top of the market bonus and royalty
  • Understanding the value of your lease in order to avoid hard trading that leads to exploration companies excluding your interest from their drilling block
  • Protecting your mineral rights with lease provisions that address concerns such as:
    • Minimizing acreage and depths held by production beyond the primary term
    • Minimizing deductions from your royalties
    • Timely payment of royalties
    • Well defined continuous operations clause
    • Escalating shut-in royalty limitations
    • Surface damages
    • Ingress and egress
    • Use of water
    • Pollution control
    • Fenced locations

Our compensation is structured to provide a win-win result as we work together. In the event you have been made a lease offer by an oil and gas company (the base offer), we will research your mineral position in the geological play, and through our lease marketing process, secure competitive offers for your lease within approximately four weeks. If an oil and gas company should give you an offer acceptance deadline, that is usually a clear indication that a better offer can be obtained, if properly marketed.

You receive all the bonus money and royalty in your initial base offer, plus seventy-five percent (75%) of the increase in bonus and royalty above and beyond the base offer. If we are not able to secure improved lease offers, you will have the benefit of our research and owe us no compensation.
