Oil & Gas Leasing and Surface Use

Lease Review and Land Negotiations

It is your land, your minerals. Make sure your rights are protected. Oil and gas leases, surface agreements, ratifications,  amendments, rights-of-way, easements, deeds, and other legal documents, no matter how simple they appear, may deprive you of valuable rights. Don't sign until you know your rights. Contact us today.

"It's imperative that land, water and air resources be protected and that the rights of property owners be respected," asserts Lance Astrella, founder of our nationally-recognized firm.

Leases, especially older ones, often expire for reasons not obvious to the landowner. The landowner may be able to negotiate a new, better lease, which can provide:

  • Higher royalties
  • New bonus payments
  • Better protection of land and water

In order to access oil and gas in the ground, oil and gas companies need to negotiate for land to locate well pads, access roads, and pipelines. We help ensure that any use of your land is properly compensated for, complies with Colorado laws and regulations, and minimizes disturbance and hassle to you.

If you feel you aren't getting what you deserve for oil or gas produced on your land, we can help. Feel free to call or e-mail us.

More than 40 years of experience in oil and gas leasing and land negotiations.
