Oil and gas production are a major driving forces in our state’s economy. Mineral owners own the right to explore and produce the oil and gas found below the surface of a tract of land. As a mineral owner, it is important to understand the potential benefits and ramifications when dealing with those interests. Mineral interests, depending on their location, can be quite valuable. As with any valuable asset, protecting that asset and developing it efficiently are important. An attorney with experience in oil and gas matters can help negotiate favorable agreements, increasing the return from your minerals and decreasing the risk of problems that we have helped clients resolve in our decades of experience in this area.
In addition to mineral owners, landowners also stand to benefit from reasonable oil and gas production through surface use agreements, pipeline easements, saltwater disposal wells, and other related development. It is important to understand the agreements because they can impact your land for decades. An attorney can help ensure your lands are protected, limit the disruption, and maximize your financial return.
