Quality Representation In Oil And Gas Matters

West Virginia, Ohio and Pennsylvania all have a rich history in oil and gas. In recent years, Marcellus Shale — a fine-grained rock lying beneath the surface — has become the focus of a new source of natural gas.

Hydraulic fracturing, or “fracking,” as it is sometimes called, pumps water, sand and chemicals underground to break up the rock, which then discharges the gas.

As shale drilling and hydraulic fracking have evolved, so have the legalities involved in oil and gas law. To begin, there are the leases, rights of way and title claims to the property with a fuel source.

  • New Lease Negotiations
  • Pipeline Right-of-Way Negotiations
  • Surface Access Agreements
  • Royalty Audits
  • Tax and Estate Planning
  • Lease Expiration Claims
  • Curative Title Litigation
  • Water Contamination Claims
  • Oil & Gas Sales and Purchases
  • Fight Eminent Domain Proceedings
  • Title Searches
