I realize that the Operator/Assignee doesn't have to accept the assignment. The assignment was done as a last gasp act to illicit a response from an operator that has ignored a plugging request made pursuant to the JOA and all other communications. I have done it twice and still not gotten a response from either operator. I guess my real issue is whether the non-operator is still responsible for billings that continue to be sent by the operator months after a valid plugging request pursuant to the applicable JOA was sent to the operator by certified mail. I like the idea of proposing the plugging to all other WI owners. That is worth a try.

Jon,This approach may work, but an effective conveyance of title requires assent of the assignee. While recording the assignment may give rise to a presumption of acceptance, the operator could still reject the assignment upon delivery.
