How to Deal with the Oil & Gas Companies in Oklahoma
When oil and gas companies need more resources, they may attempt to lease minerals from you as a land or mineral owner. When they notice a large plot of land with multiple owners, all they have to do is run the title of the piece of land and they can find the owner of the land or minerals. If you have received a letter of proposal from a big company, it is important to enlist professional legal help. They will give a proposal to lease the rights to your natural resources, which often includes royalties for you. If you skim the contract or lack the assistance of a skilled oil and gas attorney, you may be in danger of losing compensation that is rightfully yours. By working with our firm, you may be able to negotiate the best royalties and even a cash bonus for your resources.
Mistreated by a big oil & gas company?
If you have been mistreated by a big oil and gas company, such as with a lease dispute, unfair royalties or a breached contract, it is time for you to seek legal help. Any development or exploration of oil and natural gas can be handled by our experienced oil and gas attorneys. A common abuse by big companies is known as force-pooling, or the consolidation of several leases on land with adjoining leased tracts. The benefit to the company is that all landowners’ leases are combined into a common pool under one company. They don’t have to deal with multiple contracts or royalty terms since they appealed to the Oklahoma Corporation Commission to have the owners pooled. While this may save them money it could also give them the opportunity to short-change you for royalty claims. Be sure to negotiate a fair leasing contract with our help.
Gas & Oil Pollution Claims

In accordance with the Oklahoma Surface Damage Act, one individual can own the surface property while another owns the land below it, causing extreme complications when it surface damages occur.
