Adherence to gas leases

We own a tract of land that has had a gas lease since the middle 70's.  It was renewed and had a Coal Bed Methane Lease added to the original along with modifications to the original gas lease in 2008.  We conducted an audit in 2014 that actually did not start until 2015.   Much to our surprise we found the lease had been totally mismanaged, and the terms of the lease were not being followed.  Things such as royalties were being paid to the wrong person,  Deductions were being taken that…

This move, however, is not unique to Noble Energy. Over the last several weeks we have seen many operators such as Chesapeake and Rex Energy suspending stock…

Lawyer Retainers & Agreement Contracts

     Here’s what you need to look for when signing a lawyers contract. I’ve seen a few of these including the TV Lawyers contracts that advertise “You Don’t Pay If We Don’t Win”.

A lawyers’ contract should be short and concise since lawyers write contracts as part of their daily work and they have been trained in the art of writing contracts. There should be no need to interpret what they have written.
