Ruling: Limits On Interest Oil, Gas Companies Must Pay

(Fargo, ND) -- A state judge has ruled that there is a limit on how much interest companies must pay for unpaid oil and gas royalties.  

The ruling was issued last week and gave the energy industry a win in a lengthy legal battle. The decision backed up a law passed by the 2021 state Legislature.  

A state agency had been arguing that the legislation is unconstitutional.
