INSTRUCTIONS AND INFORMATION
1.
ANNUAL RENTAL: The annual rental for the land in this Assignment is __________ per acre. The rental is due in advance and shall be paid to the
Commissioner of Public Lands on the anniversary date of the original Lease agreement. The date of this Assignment does not change the annual rental
due date. For any Assignment of any Lease initially issued prior to June 15, 1985, the annual rental shall not be less than six dollars ($6.00). For any
Assignment of any Lease initially issued after June 14, 1985, or of any Lease which has been stipulated to the new ten year Lease, the minimum rental is
forty dollars ($40.00).
2.
FIXED TEN-YEAR LEASE: This Lease provides for a fixed ten-year term, and for so long as oil or gas is produced in paying quantities. The ten-year
period is divided into a primary term of five years, followed by a secondary term of five years. If no production is had during the primary term, the
rental for the secondary term is double the rental of the primary term, or equal to the highest prevailing rental rate in the district, whichever is higher.
Rentals continue even though production is had.
3.
FIXED FIVE-YEAR LEASE: This Lease provides for a fixed five-year term, and for so long as oil and gas is produced in paying quantities. The fixed
five-year Lease has no secondary term. Rentals continue even though production is had.
4.
FILING: All Assignments shall be filed in the State Land Office in triplicate, with original signatures on all three copies, within one hundred days from
the date of signing, and must be accompanied by the recording fee. Additional filing requirements for Blanket Assignments are addressed under item ten,
below.
5.
RECORDING FEE: The recording fee for each Record Title Assignment is $100.00. If, however, an assignment is filed more than one hundred days
from the assignor's execution date an additional late filing fee of $150.00 will be required for a total of $250.00. This fee is required for each lease listed
on a Blanket Assignment. Said fees are non-refundable.
6.
PERSONAL CHECKS: When an Assignment is accompanied by a personal check, the Commissioner of Public Lands reserves the right to withhold
approval of the Assignment until the check has cleared.

B. for less than a legal subdivision. "Legal subdivision" means forty acres or a tract described by lot number. A tract described by lot number may be
more or less than forty acres;
C. for less than assignor's entire interest in any legal subdivision (except where transfer is by operation of law);
D. in the name of a trusteeship unless the trust is expressly set forth and not more than two persons are named as trustee;
E. after a lis pendens is filed;
F. for any assignment containing any language other than the approved form;
G. where surety requirements have not been met; or
H. where the lease is not in good standing; Approval of the assignment by the Commissioner does not guarantee the lease is in good standing.
