Understanding mineral rights

Does your property have surface rights or mineral rights? If so, it's important that you understand the difference between the two. Surface rights mean that you have the right to the enjoyment and use of property above ground. Mineral rights are the right to explore the property for the existence of gas, oil and other naturally occurring minerals in a gaseous or liquid form. If located, the property can be developed in order to produce the minerals.

What will 2017 look like for the oil industry in Louisiana?

Many parties are involved in or connected to the oil industry here in Louisiana. This not only includes large oil companies, but smaller operators and property owners who enter into contracts to allow their land to be used for oil drilling and exploration. For small operators and property owners, many things can impact how their involvement/connection to the oil industry ends up going for them, financially and otherwise.
