Payments are mailed or deposited electronically into your account on or around the 20th of the month. If that day is a weekend or holiday, the payment is instead 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 20th of the month following the production month. For example, payments for the production month of January are sent out on or around February 20.
