MRP 127: Justin Huhn and the Bull Case for Uranium
We continue our theme on investing with a somewhat unconventional topic this week. While our primary focus is still on oil and gas, we wanted to dig in (pun intended) to the uranium market to see if the push towards a lower carbon future might open up opportunities for mineral owners that own property in areas with Uranium deposits. I’m really excited about this discussion because I didn’t know much about the Uranium market and the bull case for Uranium until this interview. Our guest, Justin Huhn, does a great job of breaking down the fundamental case for Uranium and how you can benefit from this unique opportunity. We also talk about the future of nuclear energy and how it fits into a low carbon energy mix. Plus, the little talked about side-effects from our transition to solar and wind. If you own mineral rights near potential uranium deposits or if you are looking to learn more about this unique sector, be sure to listen to find out how you can take advantage of this opportunity.

In this episode we do a deep dive on the ways you can invest in mineral rights, royalties, and non-operated Working Interests.

MRP 124: What to Know About Becoming a Non-Consenting Mineral Owner
In this episode, we discuss the concept of not signing an oil and gas lease when you are force pooled and deciding to not participate in the drilling of a well.

We discuss things to consider with the risk penalty that you will be assessed on the non-operated working interest that you now own, and what can happen if additional wells are drilled in the future.

MRP 122: Managing Mineral Rights in Another State and How to Get Help
Beth recently wrote in and gave an excellent suggestion on a topic that I realized we hadn’t covered in a single episode. She wrote asking for “advice on managing mineral rights from far away, particularly what services I can expect from an attorney, what might be better handled by an independent engineer or landman, or what I'll have to do myself." This is a very common situation where you may own mineral rights or royalty interests in another state and you need to research your interests either through the county courthouse or the state oil and gas commission or you may need the services of a professional in that state but you may not be able to meet with them in person. What we are going to cover today are some tips for managing mineral rights and royalties from out of state and how to go about hiring a professional to get help and what types of professionals can help with different steps along the way.

MRP 119: Carbon Intensity of U.S. Oil Production Compared to OPEC and Russia
As the Washington Post recently reported, Joe Biden made "the embarrassing move to call on OPEC and its allies to boost oil production as pump prices climb, underscoring alarm over the U.S. loss of energy independence under President Biden." By asking OPEC and its allies like Russia to increase oil production, will this actually result in increased CO2 emissions versus if he had asked domestic producers to increase production? We were surprised at what we discovered. As always, links to the show notes can be found at mineralrightspodcast.com.
