The newspaper article below is a sample of how people looking in summarize our state of affairs:

The state of Texas is holding $461.1 million in unclaimed oil and gas royalties — money that’s reported to the Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts and turned over to the state by companies when they can’t find mineral owners.

The money sitting around in the state’s sock drawer is enough to buy a six-pack of Shiner Bock, a half-gallon of Bluebell Ice Cream and breakfast tacos for everyone in Texas ($17.73 for all 26 million of us).

And with drilling and oil production booming once again across much of Texas, and with shale drilling technology making it possible to drill in previously unprofitable regions, the amount of unclaimed money is growing.

Is some of it yours?

You can visit the comptroller’s website ( to search for unclaimed property of all sorts (not just royalties paid on oil and gas properties).

Or you can call the state at 800-654-3463 and someone will help you look up your name or a relative’s name by phone.

By, Jennifer Hiller


Remember, the amount of unclaimed money is growing due to previously inaccessible shale fields, like the Eagle Ford.
