Oil & Gas Disputes

Jack-Up Drilling Rig

There are many types of disputes that arise over mineral rights and royalties. The most common claims for landowners usually relate to the terms and obligations expressed in the oil, gas & mineral lease entered into by the landowner. This field of law is one of Mr. Dozier’s favorite areas as he earned his Bachelor’s Degree from LSU in Petroleum Land Management (primarily dealing with mineral rights, and exploration and production of oil and gas). Landowners who have suffered losses due to the failure of the mineral lessee to honor the obligation expressed in the lease (to drill, to pay, to market, to restore, to build roads, etc.) should obtain legal representation and take action as necessary. Mr. Dozier has the experience and reputation in this area to force the mineral lessee (and its assigns) to fulfill its obligations, either by specific performance (actions) or financial compensation or both. For landowners who have not yet executed a mineral lease, call Mr. Dozier for legal advice on the key terms and conditions, and the specific wording and language, to best protect your rights. For landowners who perceive that their property interest is being depleted or diminished or harmed, call Mr. Dozier to evaluate the potential claim and to take all necessary action.
