New Lease Negotiations

Oil and gas leases are complex contracts that are drafted and proposed by sophisticated businesses. While a lease "signing bonus" and the potential for royalty payments may be enticing, the modern oil and gas lease contains many provisions that could have a substantial impact on your rights as a royalty owner for decades. Before entering into an oil and gas lease, it is important that you are informed about the contract and what rights that you are granting to the gas company. The oil and gas attorneys at Houston Harbaugh have assisted many clients with the review and negotiation of oil and gas leases to help level the playing field for landowners and royalty owners in their interactions with oil and gas companies.
