For attorneys who do not usually deal with oil and gas matters, there are several basic concepts which would be helpful to know when dealing in agricultural real estate and/or probates.  This presentation will provide information on:

  1. creating/severed mineral interests from the surface estate, conveying mineral interests, and pitfalls and ambiguities to avoid.
  2. How to locate, include, value, and distribute mineral interests in an estate.
  3. How to protect your clients when presented with an Oil and Gas Lease.
  4. Basic clauses in an Oil and Gas Lease.
  5. How to advise clients when they are confronted by an oil company wanting to actually drill a well on their land, even if they do not own any interest in the minerals, including possible injunction actions by the oil company.
  6. Possible remedies for surface owners to acquire title to severed mineral interests which he/she does obviously not own.
