This year we are offering two half day classes called
OIL AND GAS CALCULATIONS 1 & 2 – An intro and advanced WORKSHOP on Wednesday, September 3 from 1-5 p.m. Registration will be limited and you must register to attend the class. An additional fee of $125 for NADOA members and $225 for non-members will be required. Descriptions are provided below.  Select option to register on institute registration form.
Oil & Gas Calculations I - A Workshop
Join us for a special half day seminar on the basic calculations every division order analyst must know to maximize their value to the company.
Facilitated by two seasoned analysts, the course is designed for those new to the industry or simply needing a refresher on calculations. This is an interactive learning experience and a calculator is required. Through lectures, demonstrations, examples and “real world” problems,” attendees will gain valuable insight into this critical aspect of division orders. The course also includes a workbook with examples, problems and answers in the back of the book. This is a very valuable resource which will provide the basic formulas for many of these calculations.
By the end of the seminar, attendees will have mastered calculations including:
• Working Interest
• Net Revenue Interest
• Overriding Royalties
• Non-Participating Royalty Interests
• Lease Net Acres
• Lease Gross Acres
• Unit Interests
• Undivided Interests
• Acreage Calculations
• Calculation tips
The workshop will conclude with a hands-on exercise to set up the division order pay sheet based on a sample title opinion. This is the first time NADOA is offering a Wednesday half day seminar. We hope you will take advantage of this new offering. See you there!
This class will be taught by Alyce Hoge and Sherry Robinson
