Frequently Asked Questions
Questions about Royalty Checks
When are royalty checks mailed each month?
Why haven't I received my check?
Please wait ten business days to give the mail ample time for delivery before contacting Hilcorp. Our minimum check amount is $100.00. If due to fluctuation in volumes and/or prices, your accrued amount is less than $100.00, there will be no check issued that month. You may, however, request that funds be issued to you when your accrued amount reaches $25.00. Download the $25 Minimum Check Form (PDF).
Smaller revenue amounts that fail to meet the minimums above are accumulated month to month until they meet the minimum, at which time you will receive a check. Smaller revenue amounts that have accumulated to more than $10 per owner are paid at least once annually, in October.
Other reasons for not receiving a check include that your interest may have been placed in suspense due to a bad address, transfer of interest, or title dispute.
What do I do if my check is lost, stolen, or becomes outdated?
Contact our Owner Relations at 713-209-2457 to request payment if your check has been lost or stolen. Please have the following information ready when you call:
- Your name
- Your owner number
- Your taxpayer identification number
We will verify the status of your check with our Treasury Department and stop payment if the check is outstanding. The funds will be made available again through reissue to you under a new check number. If your check is over 90 days old, it will not be honored. Please void the check and return it with a written request to reissue to:
