We prepare all types of title opinions for oil and gas as well as mining properties on fee, state and federal lands throughout our jurisdictional area. We can assist developers in establishing and understanding federal exploratory units, and we also counsel our clients on environmental and tribal matters. We routinely work with landmen, brokers and title companies and can help our clients connect with other industry professionals best suited to meet their abstracting and brokerage needs. Where title defects create problems, we help owners of mineral interests cure record title defects and establish marketable title through our title curative services, including probate and estate administration, affidavits, corrective deeds and assignments.
Oil and Gas Agreements
We negotiate and draft agreements related to development, purchase or divestment of assets for oil and gas industry participants across our jurisdictional area. We counsel parties to all types of agreements on the best language to accomplish their goals and safeguard their interests. We complete due diligence on properties contemplated for purchase or sale, and we help our clients understand the related risks in transactions affecting their interests. We also advise operators on any of their permitting, well spacing, and pooling concerns and can help them obtain the necessary permits to stay in compliance with the regulatory schemes where they operate.
