For private citizens and large corporations interested in using their land for oil and gas operations, it is essential to first obtain clear documentation that the interests in question are legally in their possession. Often times, this means confirming ownership for an in-progress land purchase in order to proceed with financing; even after ownership is established, some cases require a division of the title to establish ownership from other wells on the property.
In most cases, a detailed examination can mean the difference between a successful drilling operation and decades of legal disputes. Our attorneys bring deep experience and expertise in navigating Texas and New Mexico title law, giving our clients peace of mind in title examination proceedings. We work with company land representatives and independent brokers, then scour public records of federal, state and county agencies to compile a published title opinion covering all aspects of ownership.
We help clients legally confirm that they own (or will acquire) the interests that they believe that they own before they conduct oil and gas operations on the property.
