Oil and Gas Law

Trusted Arkansas legal advice for pipeline issues

The valuable oil and natural gas resources that lie under the ground in our region are an important source of wealth for Arkansas.  In part because of their unique value and the fact that rich deposits generally run under the real property of various owners, there are many legal regulations that apply specifically to oil and gas ownership, extraction, and transport.

Oil and gas law pertains to the acquisition and ownership rights in oil and gas under the soil before discovery and after its capture, and adjudication regarding those rights.  At Simpson & Simpson, P.A., we have extensive experience in handling all types of questions, legal issues, and disputes related to oil and gas law, including—

  • Ownership of gas and oil rights
  • Sale of rights
  • Leasing agreements
    • Lessor rights and obligations
    • Lessee rights and obligations
  • Lease terms and expiration
  • Habendum and force majeure clauses
  • Bonus, rental, and royalty payments
  • Development of the land
  • Severance of ownership
  • Extraction of oil and gas
    • Flowing under your land
    • Flowing under another's land
  • Rule of capture
  • Drilling and pipeline labor rules and disputes
  • Negligence
  • Pipeline injuries
  • Ownership of extracted oil and gas
  • Transportation
  • Related litigation

Oil and gas contracts have terms and conditions that differ from standard contracts.  And specific legal statutes can override agreements made by parties to the contract.  Whether you are a landowner, a pipeline company, or an oilfield/pipeline worker, you need a lawyer to handle contracts and disputes who is well-informed about oil and gas regulations.
