REQUIREMENTS AND INFORMATION
1. Application and/or cover letter should reflect:
Name and address of intended Lessee. Name and contact number of Applicant/Agent, and address of

Specific state-owned minerals being requested, i.e., SW1/4 NW1/4, Section 5, T29N, R06W, Mancelona
Township, Antrim County.
Classification requested; Development or Nondevelopment (see below).
Development classifications may be requested and will result in the need for field review. Additionally,
Nondevelopment classifications will continue to be offered and specifically processed for those minerals
under the jurisdiction of other state agencies which have historically required Nondevelopment
classifications, i.e., Military Affairs, Department of Transportation (MDOT).
Direct oil and gas leases are issued on a quarter-section basis. As of March 1, 1997, the following
nonrefundable application review fee must be submitted with each request for the application to be
considered:
Development request: $500
Nondevelopment request: $200
Type of drilling, i.e., Antrim, Niagaran, or Prairie du Chien (PDC).
Proposed drilling unit, i.e., NW1/4, Section 5, T29N, R06W, Mancelona Township, Antrim County. If the
request is within a proposed or existing Unitized Area (UA), Uniform Spacing Plan (USP), or Voluntarily
Pooling Agreement (VPA), include a copy or draft of the applicable agreement which describes all lands
involved.
Proposed surface location of well, if known, and Department of Environment, Great Lakes, and Energy,
Oil, Gas, and Minerals Division Permit Application number, if available.
Proposed lease terms. Minimum of three-sixteenths (3/16) royalty and maximum of three years.

Private leases for lands included within the proposed drilling unit.
Copies of drafts paid and Lease Purchase Report (if applicable).
Executed assignments if private leases reflect a different Lessee.
Survey to verify "majority" interest if state-owned minerals reflect one-half of drilling unit, i.e., 80-acre
Niagaran unit intended and state records reflect 40-acre interest. Lessee will need to provide a registered
surveyor's verification that actual state interest is less than 40 acres, i.e., 39.877 and Lessee interest is
39.955 acres.
A mineral tract map coinciding with the leasehold ownership interests submitted.
3. Map outlining proposed drilling unit and state-owned minerals being requested. If requesting minerals within
a proposed UA, USP, or VPA, highlight boundary of all lands included in same.
4. If the request involves minerals located in a platted subdivision, a copy of the recorded plat and projected
acreage calculation must be included. A registered surveyor's verification may be required to confirm the
acreage amount.
5. If the request involves MDOT lands or highway right-of-way, a copy of the deed reflecting how MDOT
acquired the parcel is required along with a limited attorney title opinion if MDOT acquired the minerals
through dormancy.
6. If the request involves a surface owner other than Department of Natural Resources (DNR), applicant must
provide surface owner name, address, and legal description.
7. Public Noticing by the Applicant must be completed at least thirty (30) days in advance of the anticipated
DNR approval date. Upon completion of preliminary review of application by DNR staff, the applicant must
place a Public Notice in the local newspaper. Directions for completing the Public Notice process will be
provided by the DNR.
