For those who own mineral interests, it’s important to be mindful of the best way to leave them at your death to prevent fractionalization if possible. Managing mineral interests can take some time. Oil and gas prices go up and down. One generation may not yield much, but the next generation may. Understanding what is owned can be confusing, so it’s important to make sure you figure out who will be best at dealing with these interests if you are incapacitated or gone.
