Incident in Istanbul: The Secret Files & the Case of the Underpaid Royalties
Zounds! Maria has stumbled across secret files – they have information that shows that a midstream transportation company has been underpaying royalty owners by deducting line charges.
This could be one of the largest class action suits in her state’s history. But, she needs to explain the situation.
Help her explain what is going on and how oil and gas royalty owners are paid for production. Who is involved?
Who pays the royalties?
How are the payments (and the deductions determined? When are they decided?)
We need your expert help!
Please create a presentation that helps a royalty owner, or potential jury member (in the case of a Class Action lawsuit) understand what has happened, and also what kind of information Maria needs to collect.
