Land Owner FAQs

I do not know my "Owner Number." Can I still obtain access to my information?

Yes. When contacting Contango without an owner number please have your full name, address and well name (if known) available for our representative to locate your information. The "Owner Number" is simply the identification tool that distinguishes each individual land owner without the use of a social security number.

Why does the amount on the revenue check change monthly?

The amount of each revenue check will vary due to fluctuations in production and commodity prices, operational maintenance and/or downtime. These events are routine and associated with the normal course of business.

What if I need to transfer ownership interests?

Please see the Change of Address/Ownership section for proper procedures related to the applicable situation as forms and documentation may vary depending on the situation for each transfer. Typical events include changes in marital status, deceased owner, sale of interest, or changes in Trustee.

When should I expect to receive my revenue check?

Revenue checks are typically disbursed by the last business day of each month, as long as the check is above the $100 minimum pay status.

Can I preview my revenue check online?

Yes. Contango uses JIBlink software that allows royalty owners to view their revenue check details at no cost. Contact Contango's Revenue Department for log-in information.

Why did I not receive a revenue check this month?

In most cases it is a result of the account balance being below the $100 minimum pay status. Revenue checks below $100 but above $1 are paid once annually in December. Checks are mailed to the most recent address on file. If you have recently moved please visit our Change of Address/Ownership section to download the Change of Address form.

When does Contango issue IRS Form 1099-MISC?
