Oil and gas are two commodities that seemingly make the world go round. Without these two natural goods, the modern world as we know it would cease to exist. Countless individuals, businesses, corporations and government entities across the globe have weighted stake in oil and gas. This being the case, it comes as no surprise that legal dealings within these industries require the utmost attention to detail and up-to-date knowledge surrounding the myriad of rights, policies, statutes and regulations pertaining to oil and gas law.
Given the highly lucrative nature of gas and oil industries, energy exploration and production companies jump at the opportunity to acquire land containing oil and gas. However, this land acquisition must be lawful and adhere to the many facets of oil and gas law. When disputes arise pertaining to land rights, leases, agreements and other areas of oil and gas law, the attorneys at Hayes, Berry, White & Vanzant, LLP are here to resolve them using our vast legal knowledge and experience.
Unlike different parts of the world where national governments regulate gas and oil laws, America allows its states to enforce their own oil and gas laws. Be that as it may, federal and constitutional laws still apply. Individuals, businesses, corporations and even Native American tribes often privately own property containing oil and gas reserves. For energy companies to procure these private properties, they must enter into various legal agreements with the property owners.
