Helping Property Owners Navigate Oil And Gas Law Issues

If an oil and gas company or government agency contacts you about mineral leases on your property, it's important to know your rights. In this situation, individual landowners are often at a disadvantage, especially if they aren't fully aware of what mineral rights they have and how valuable they may be.

At Richie, Richie & Oberle, L.L.P., we help landowners and mineral rights owners negotiate with oil and gas companies in all types of situations. With deep experience in oil and gas law and energy law, we can assist with cases involving:

  • Negotiating mineral leases for nonrenewable energy resources such as natural gas and shale oil
  • Determining mineral ownership
  • Buying and selling mineral rights
  • Mineral ownership disputes
  • Disputes over royalties, water use and property damage
  • Landownership and mineral rights ownership issues during estate planning and probate

In Louisiana, just because you own a property does not necessarily mean you own the mineral rights to the property as well. If you have recently inherited or acquired a property and are unsure about what you own, we can help you research your deed or title.
