Joint interest billing
In this article
Your Working Interest account probably is set to netting - monthly revenues debited from your JIB expenses – and the amount you received is the difference between your revenues and JIB expenses.
Remaining credits due to overpayments or unpaid JIB invoices from previous months can be used in this operation to zero your credit balance account and we will send you all of this amount. In case you receive a check with number beginning with #2500 and you still could not identify what makes up this amount, please contact us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We strongly recommend you to register online in our Online System. On it you can retrieve current and past invoices and revenue statements and print them if you want to. All you need to register is your last JIB or revenue statement. You can also contact JIBs Department to retrieve a copy of your last Joint Interest Billing and also confirm the address on file.
In the months you don’t receive an invoice, your account might be under our “Billing Threshold”. JIB expenses less than $200 are held and an invoice is not generated. Once your accumulated expenses reach the Billing Threshold of $200 an invoice is then generated.
You have two ways of paying your invoices, by check or direct deposit. Find below payment instructions for both methods:

I don’t want to keep my Working Interest in a certain property. What can I do?
You can try to find a third party interested in acquiring your interest. If that is what you decide to do, please find what documents need to be sent to XTO on the Division Orders (DO) section of the Frequently Asked Questions. If you would like to inquire about assigning or selling the interest to XTO, please reach out to our DO Department at email@example.com as JIB Interest Owner Relations cannot process these requests.
Why I am being billed for a well, but not paid revenues for the same well?
There are a few possible reasons that is happening. It could be that the well is not currently producing (e.g. has not reached completion status or is shut-in). Another reason is the revenues may be in suspense status due to unknown address, title issues, etc. One common confusion experienced by some owners is when the account is placed in netting. In this case, the revenues are being paid, but instead of a check being sent to you this money is first routed to your expense account to clear the outstanding balance. If this revenue is enough to cover everything that is past due, then a payment will be sent to you with the remaining balance.
Why am I receiving invoices if I sold the interest I had with XTO?
The most common reason this happens is because the owner fails to notify and/or provide the supporting documents of the sale to XTO. XTO’s Division Orders Department can only update ownership for a well once the owner sends a recorded Assignment Bill of Sale (ABOS). There are more details on Division Orders section of the Frequently Asked Questions as where to send this document, how long it takes for the transfer to be completed, etc.
Can I trust an email I received from @exxonmobil.com?
Yes, you can. XTO Energy is an ExxonMobil Subsidiary, so the employees use email addresses with ExxonMobil domain.
