LandGate has been exclusively retained to market for sale a large overriding royalty interest (ORRI) package located in Colorado’s Weld County. 

The firm described the sale as an incredibly rare opportunity to acquire ORRI (non-cost bearing) in 152 horizontal Niobrara and Codell wells in the heart of the Wattenberg Field. The package includes 74 wells fully producing with production start dates beginning in early 2020 and 68 wells are drilled and actively being completed. Additionally, 98.6% of well locations will be fully producing by the end of first-quarter 2022.

Civitas Resources Inc., a new energy company forming through the pending merger of Bonanza Creek Energy Inc., Extraction Oil & Gas Inc. and, most recently, Crestone Peak Resources, operates the majority of the position. Great Western operates a fully drilled, uncompleted DSU as well. Civitas has released a public notice (in downloads) for flow line installation on multiple drilled uncompleted wellpads, further solidifying their production scheduling of the DUC inventory for the asset.

Most recent monthly cash flow was approximately $136,000. The interest earned $490,000 in February and is anticipated to earn $600,000-plus by the end first-quarter 2022. Well interests have been confirmed via AFE, division order or pay stub, with remaining well interests calculated by the seller, based on DSU size and royalty percentage. A full economic report along with well schedules can be found online at LandGate’s website.
