Highly Qualified Kansas Attorneys Supporting Clients in the Oil, Gas, and Energy Industry
Do you need a lawyer for an oil, gas, and energy matter?
Energy is a hot-button issue across our country, and perhaps no state is more significant than Kansas when it comes to the development and transportation of petroleum and natural gas. Nestled centrally among some of America’s largest oil and gas fields in New Mexico, Texas and North Dakota, Kansas has become a crucial target for construction of vast pipelines and pump stations, as well as for exploration.
Whether you are a landowner, a contractor, a producer, a local oilfield service provider, or a major energy company, the legal issues surrounding exploration for and refinement of oil and gas are complex and abundant. With guidance from attorney Hannah L. Brass, Attorney at Law, you’ll be prepared to achieve your objectives as you face transactions, negotiation, litigation, or any other hurdle that comes your way.
Oil and gas leasing
We work with both operators and land owners to create fair leases that allow for oil and gas operators to explore and develop wells, natural gas storage facilities, and other collection systems. We understand the legal complexities involved in oil and gas exploration and production activities, such as exclusivity of exploration rights, ownership of land versus ownership of minerals and when they differ, lease length and rights to profits after the lease expires, and other contract terms.
Royalty payment disputes
Disputes over royalty payments may arise between land/mineral rights owners and oil and gas operators for a wide range of reasons:
Disagreements over division orders versus lease provisions
Conflict between production companies and lease beneficiaries
Failure to pay royalties in full, on time, or at all
Differing opinions regarding division order titles
Disagreement regarding gas or oil’s market value at a given time
