Protecting The Rights And Interests Of Mineral Rights Owners

At Ehrlich • Pledger Law, LLP, we are prepared to assist mineral rights owners with any of the following services.

  • Reviewing oil and gas leases — Oil and gas leases are typically one-sided in favor of the oil producer, necessitating lease negotiation to balance provisions and protect the mineral owner's rights. We will help you negotiate oil and gas leases, and, if necessary, we will review and prepare these documents for you.
  • Title issues — We can help to transfer title interests into the name of new owners or heirs of an estate. We also can clean up a title through quiet title actions.
  • Oil and gas lease disputes — Disputes can arise with other mineral owners, surface owners, and oil and gas producers. We can assist in the interpretation of leases to resolve disputes or, if needed, go to litigation to protect your mineral rights.
  • Compatibility issues — Compatibility of surface use issues can arise when real estate developers, solar or wind power companies or other entities seek a usage agreement that may affect oil and gas producers. We can review and negotiate the terms of surface waivers, unit agreements, pooling agreements and other documents to ensure your rights are protected.
