Legal Help With Oil And Gas/Mineral Rights

You may think the presence of oil or gas on your property means the end of all your worries. With a steady production of these profitable products, all you need to do is sit back and cash the royalty checks. While that would be ideal, there are a few details you need to sort out before the money begins to roll in.

Are You An Expert In Mineral Rights Law?

If not, you want to speak with an attorney before you begin this process. James Rex Fair, Jr. A Professional Law Corporation, has worked with matters involving mineral rights law, including oil and gas production here in Natchitoches Parish and throughout northern Louisiana for two decades. Our firm understands the complexity of this area and can help protect your rights and ensure your lease or sale of your mineral rights is done accurately.

This is a complex area of law, and the oil exploration and production companies have attorneys who are very well-versed and experienced with the conveyance of oil and gas rights.

  • Split estate
  • Oil and gas and mineral law rights and ownership

  • Servitudes
  • Mineral lease and oil field conveyance
  • Master and service agreements
  • Consulting agreements related to oil gas industry

Mineral Abstract

Kip Fair can assist with all aspects of your oil and gas law questions, including the mineral rights abstract. An abstract of the mineral rights to your property is very important. It details the record of conveyances of the mineral rights from the initial land grant from the U.S. government in the 19th century, up to the present day.

Because mineral rights are often severed from the surface rights, it is necessary to determine if your purchase of the property included those rights. The creation of an abstract is complex and requires the attorney to visit recorders offices and courthouses and trace every sale or encumbrances on the mineral rights. Kip Fair has the experience with these documents and can help you know with certainty where you stand.
