At Peveto & Associates, we consider title ownership research to be an important foundation of any successful oil or gas venture.
Title Ownership Research
Our landmen work to determine existing ownership interests in surface rights, mineral rights, and oil and gas leasehold rights. Providing clients with experienced landmen who can obtain leases and prove land ownership in a timely and cost-effective manner makes Peveto & Associates your advocate for oil and gas exploration. We provide detailed information on existing encumbrances that could affect the acquisition, financing, or development of a property. Without accurate title work, oil and gas operators run the risk of major financial consequences.
Our Title Work Encompasses:
- Cursory lease checks to determine if minerals are currently leased or held by production or if they are available for our clients to lease;
- Cursory surface title examination for pipeline right-of-way, road construction, wind power, gas storage or wireless applications;
- More in-depth mineral or surface ownership title work for mineral lease or surface acquisition;
- Drillsite or division order runsheets for attorney’s title opinions, starting from the sovereignty of the soil through current day ownership of minerals, surface and leasehold.
