What is a subsurface oil and gas lease?

A subsurface gas or oil lease is a specific type of agreement that is made between a landowner and an oil or gas company. In the state of Texas, land ownership can be split into two distinct sets of rights: mineral rights and surface ownership rights. A subsurface oil and gas agreement can lease a landowner's mineral rights, surface ownership rights, or both to an oil and gas company. Once an agreement is made, the company will be granted the right to explore, develop, and produce oil or gas from subsurface deposits of oil and gas. In exchange, the landowner can receive financial compensation in the form of royalties or lease bonuses. Herring Law Firm can help you avoid common mistakes of lease agreements and provide effective legal guidance as you decide the terms of an oil and gas agreement.

If you are considering an oil and gas lease, there will be no room for error, and the firm can help you review all lease elements, including:

  • Royalties and royalty beneficiaries
  • Primary terms and termination
  • Disclosure of any fracking practices
  • Disputes involving quiet title of mineral interests
  • Pipeline leases
  • Terms to help avoid unnecessary contamination litigation
  • Breach of contract
