Federal agency to review past flaring, could order royalties be paid

Attorney Derrick Braaten quoted in recent article regarding natural gas flaring, and legal actions intended to find a remedy for mineral owners.

“Braaten said he still plans to pursue actions on behalf of royalty owners for flared gas.”

“’Most of this flaring, there’s really no argument that the company owes royalties,’ Braaten said. ‘They’ve just made it non-economic for someone to recover.’”
