Types of Oil and Gas Cases We Handle

We assist with a wide range of oil and gas cases at Malley Law Firm. The following are some of the cases we handle most often:

Get Compensation From Your Breach of Duty to Protect Against Drainage case

One of the integral implied duties of an oil and gas company upon signing a lease with a property owner is the duty to protect against drainage. This is an essential duty of the oil and gas company and is a way for property owners to ensure that their land is not subject to drainage by an adjacent property well. If you believe that a common reservoir underneath your land is being drained, you may wish to consult an experienced oil and gas attorney.

We are so confident in our ability to help you get the compensation you deserve that we don’t get paid unless you do.

We know that a lack of resources has left a lot of people without access to the civil justice system. That is why we work on a contingency basis, meaning we cover all the upfront costs associated with your claim (court costs, expert costs, filing fees, etc.) so you don’t have to pay out of pocket.

We don’t take a penny until you’ve won your case.

FAQs

Breach of the duty to protect against drainage may occur when an oil and gas company signs a lease with two adjacent property owners. In this situation, if the oil and gas company drills a well in property number 1 and discovers oil, although geological tests indicate a common reservoir underneath both properties, the oil and gas company may be breaching their duty to protect against drainage.

Texas law also has found that the duty to protect against drainage exists in the instance of field wide drainage. For example, if a royalty owner owns only 1/6 of the land in question, but is experiencing a drainage due to “up-dip” wells, this owner may have the ability to bring a claim that the oil and gas company is breaching their duty to protect against drainage.

A royalty interest holder may be able to bring a claim for damages against the oil and gas company in the case of breach of duty to protect. However, the royalty interest holder must be able to prove substantial drainage, specific damages, and probability of profit. Probability of profit includes the probability that production from a new well drilled on their property would cover the costs of drilling the well and yield a reasonable profit. In so many words, the royalty interest holder must be able to prove that drilling of a well is a feasible undertaking. You must be able to prove that there is a potential for an oil and gas company to turn a profit in order to bring a claim that the company breached its duty to protect from drainage.
