Payments are mailed or deposited electronically into your account on or around the 12th of the month, unless that day is a weekend or holiday. In that case, payment is mailed or deposited electronically into your account the next business day. If you are receiving payments via mail, please allow 10 business days to receive your check. Payments for a production month (both oil and natural gas) are normally sent out on or around the 12th of the second month following the production month. For example, payments for the production month of January are sent out on or around March 12th.
