Efficient Assistance For Oil And Gas Development

The oil and gas industry is highly regulated. Each state has its own government agency that regulates the production of oil and gas. For example, in Texas, the Texas Railroad Commission regulates oil and gas development and production throughout the state. There are also federal regulations and laws that must be followed. Our oil and gas lawyers help facilitate the following for development and production corporations:

  • Securing the land rights, lease agreements and necessary surface use agreements
  • Conducting due diligence and title searches to make sure real estate rights are secure and protected
  • Facilitating any necessary inspections by state and federal regulatory agencies
  • Applying for any necessary permits and permissions
  • Managing conflicts, negotiating disagreements and resulting litigation

Our oil and gas development lawyers have a familiarity and understanding of the local laws regarding the exploration and development of natural resources for each state in which they provide legal services for oil and gas rights and development. They are also familiar with federal requirements. By retaining our board-certified oil, gas and mineral lawyers, you can ensure that all of the necessary permits and applications will be submitted in a timely and efficient manner.
