When the oil and gas industry is looking to develop an area for oil and gas, the industry is often able to negotiate oil and gas leases, surface-use agreements and pipeline easements that do not provide adequate compensation or provide adequate protections to the land and nearby residents. All too often, families, communities and even local governments negotiate with the oil and gas industry without adequate legal representation.
Retaining legal representation in negotiating with the oil and gas industry is an excellent investment. The few hours that it might take an experienced oil and gas attorney to negotiate a lease or surface use agreement will more than pay for itself.
The people who negotiate leases and surface use agreement for the oil and gas industry are called “land-men”. Land-men are professional negotiators who are very experienced in getting landowners and mineral owners to sign their standard lease and surface use agreements. These standard leases, surface-use agreements and easements are written by oil and gas attorneys, to benefit the oil and gas industry.
