Royalty Dispute

HOUSTON OIL & GAS ATTORNEY

In today’s farming economy, many landowners have turned away from using their land to grow crops or raise cattle in favor of allowing oil and gas companies to drill for fuel on their property in exchange for royalty payments. The contracts owners have entered into are complex and hardly understandable to the layperson.

After receiving sizable payments for a period of time, many landowners experience sticker shock when receiving their monthly royalty checks. Oil and gas companies are notorious for withholding payments due to unspecified gathering costs and other incidental charges associated with drilling. Attempting to negotiate with large scale drilling concerns can be frustrating and often leads to drawn out royalty disputes over the amount of owners’ monthly payments. At my Houston law practice, the Malley Law Firm, PLLC, I represent land owners who have been unfairly treated by their oil and gas lessees.

UNDERPAYMENT OF OIL LEASE ROYALTIES AND OTHER DISPUTES

It is well known that oil and gas companies have been using a systematic practice of underpaying lessors for the use of their mineral rights, withholding billions of dollars in royalty payments by manipulating costs and related data to skim profits and charge land owners fees and expenses associated with their drilling concerns. Unfortunately, many land owners failed to understand the terms of their leases when they signed their agreements in the first place, allowing the companies to use complex accounting procedures and uncertain outcomes of royalty payments in the future.

If you have experienced a reduction in payments of royalties, contact my law offices today and schedule a free evaluation of your situation today. I will meet with you and review all relevant documents including your lease to determine the best course of action to help restore your rightful income. I am available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and will travel to you if you cannot make it to my office. Contact me today for a free consultation
