Mineral Rights for Oil and Gas Drilling in Texas
Texas is rich in deposits of oil and natural gas, and as the means to access these deposits improves and as the desire for energy independence increases, a growing number of landowners are receiving inquiries from oil and gas companies regarding access to their mineral rights and properties.
If you’ve been approached about leasing your property, experienced Houston real estate attorney Tony Malley can help you determine your rights and negotiate fair terms that take into account your unique circumstances and needs. Often, landowners are unsure whether they own the rights to the resources under the surface of their property.
Mr. Malley understands the laws that govern the extraction of natural resources, and his legal knowledge regarding land use rights is backed by his personal experience as a licensed Texas real estate broker. Because most property owners possess neither the desire nor the ability to remove the oil, gas or other mineral resources from the earth, they can often reach an adequate agreement with an energy company that allows the landowner to maintain surface rights to the property while effectively selling mineral rights to the resources below the surface.
