Tag Archive for net revenue interest

This is the percent of revenue that the working interest holders keep after paying the royalties to the owners of the mineral rights and all other non-operating interests. In the past it was typical for the owner of the mineral rights to keep a one eighth, or 12.5% Net Revenue Interest. This meant the holders of 100% of the working interest had an 87.5% Net Revenue Interest. With the current high price of oil the owners of the mineral rights are able to keep a higher percentage than in the past and as a result an 82.5% to 80% Net Revenue Interest is much more common. I would look to avoid any companies that have less than 80% NRI on their oil leases.
