Oil and Gas Ownership and Leasing Disputes
Disputes about oil and gas ownership are becoming more and more common. Every time an oil and gas lease is signed, the oil and gas company will perform a title examination (or title search), to determine, among other things, that the person signing the lease is the actual owner and that there is no current effective oil and gas lease. Oil and gas owners are often shocked to hear that they own only half of the oil and gas or maybe not any of it. This is especially shocking for those who have previously signed oil and gas leases and have even been paid bonuses. If an oil and gas company tells you that you don’t own the oil and gas rights, or that you own less than you think you own, contact our office and speak with our experienced oil and gas lawyer. We can help determine where the issue may exist, and help you resolve the oil and gas ownership and leasing dispute. Call our office today at (304) 845-9750, Live Chat 24/7 at GKT.com or complete our online form and someone will be in touch with you to discuss your oil and gas ownership and leasing dispute.
At Gold, Khourey & Turak, our oil and gas lawyer have represented countless people who have been told that their oil and gas ownership is disputed. We work with the oil and gas company to determine the basis for their decision and then make our own independent determination as to the merits of that decision. Sometimes, it’s as simple as talking to the oil and gas company. Other times, there is a legitimate dispute and a quiet title action is needed. Our oil and gas results in these cases speak for themselves. Call us today at (304) 845-9750 to schedule your free, no obligation consultation or Live Chat with us at GKT.com. Home, evening, and weekend appointments are available.
