The Mineral Income Division works closely with the Board's Audit Committee.  This Division performs collection and accounting of revenue due the state from mineral leasing activity and production on state-owned lands and water bottoms on behalf of the State Mineral & Energy Board.  To ensure that all revenues are properly classified, the Division enters the payor information on new and existing LUW codes (Lease, Unit, Well) into the SONRIS System.  The Division also generates and processes Payor Registers which are mailed to the various payors for verification of State Decimals. 

The Division also performs audits of payor companies, including audits of major companies every three years, with auditors based in Houston and Dallas, Texas as well as Baton Rouge, Louisiana.  The field auditors work on-site at payor company offices, reviewing company records of items such as product allocation, volumes production and disposition, sales revenue and deductions, and oil and gas contracts, to determine compliance with payment obligations.
