If you are a farmer or rancher who owns an oil-rich land in West Texas, you stand to profit considerably by leasing your land to an oil company.

In an oil and gas operation, it is often necessary to gain access to the adjacent land for transportation, drainage, storage and other purposes. An easement is a legal tool that allows one party to use the other's land without transferring ownership of the land.

Texas farmers and ranchers are often approached by oil and gas companies seeking easements over their property. Our lawyers have extensive experience representing landowners and oil and gas companies in establishing easements, as well as disputes over easements.
