Oil and Gas

A boom is happening all over the U.S. with oil and gas reserves, and the state of Texas is no different. Deep oil and gas “plays” are now economically feasible where they were not just a few years ago, when oil was a lot cheaper. Oil and gas exploration and extraction can mean big surface changes to the land you own.

In South Texas, the Eagle Ford Shale is in play. Acreage is being leased and drilled; pipelines are planned. Similar frenzies are occurring in Pennsylvania, Wyoming, South Dakota, Arkansas and other locales. Landowners need to educate themselves about the language in these leases and what their lease rights are worth.

We can help landowners with oil and gas consulting, surface use agreements and any other land management needs.
