All Things Marcellus®: Market Conditions and Bad Agreements (6/26/16)

0 – 15 Minutes
Doug addresses landowners considering buying or selling oil, gas, and mineral rights. Segment provides detailed information as to how brokers, investors, and hedge funds invest in buying oil and natural gas rights from Pennsylvania landowners.  Doug fully explains how the market operates in purchasing oil and gas rights in Pennsylvania. Doug discloses how landmen and brokers operate in many cases to flip sales agreements to purchase natural gas rights to other investment entities. Why landowners must be very cautious when considering permanently selling and divesting their oil and natural gas rights. Oil and gas rights owners must negotiate the price if they are considering selling the gas rights as well as the language in the purchase and sales agreement as well as the final deed. Mistakes can be costly and last forever.

All Things Marcellus®: Company Letters (6/12/16)

0 – 15 Minutes
Doug promotes his free oil and natural gas seminar for Pennsylvania oil and gas right holders and the value of oil and gas negotiation experience.  Doug explains how oil and natural gas companies send cold letters to natural gas rights holders and requests that the landowners simply take the enclosed legal documents to a notary and sign and return the letters to the gas company in a self-address stamped envelope.  Landowners who receive letters from companies requesting to execute powerful legal contracts must be extremely cautious and seek experienced oil and gas counsel. Landowners should never sign oil and gas agreements without consulting with an experienced Pennsylvania oil and gas attorney to understand the contracts, their rights and potential opportunities to negotiate offers presented by the gas or pipeline company.

Learning from mistakes.  What factors should landowners be considering in order to avoid entering into bad agreements with energy companies. Explanation of the impact of low natural gas prices on Pennsylvania landowner’s royalty payments. Doug discusses his oil and gas websites and natural gas blogs for landowner information.   Why oil and gas right owners must consider low gas prices when evaluating any outstanding gas lease offers, gas lease extension offer or any other natural gas contract.   Does it make sense to enter into contracts with gas or pipeline companies when the companies tell the landowners that they do not have money and they are not drilling at this time?  Doug addresses the importance of specific legal counsel and advice for each landowner’s individual situation.  If you are presented with an offer to extend or modify an existing oil and gas lease, you must fully review your options and not extend terrible agreements for many years or decades into the future.  Landowners must stop signing bad legal contracts and must start seizing and maximizing opportunities and second chances.

All Things Marcellus®: Gas Lease Extension Overview

0 – 15 Minutes
Doug explains how The Clark Law Firm, PC represents landowners and oil and gas right owners across Pennsylvania and clients across the country. Doug addresses why he has been hired by gas and pipeline company employees and Landman to represent them on their own personal property and gas right ownership.  Why do company representatives and employees hire knowledgeable oil and gas attorney’s to represent them in private affairs?  Landowners must recognize that the gas company Landman is out to negotiate the best possible deal in favor of the company they work for, and not you, the landowner.  No gas company or pipeline company Landman goes to the landowner’s house and tells them that they are working for the company and they are out to get the best deal for the company and give the landowner the worst terms possible.  Even company representatives and Landman know the benefits and will often hire attorney’s to work for them in their own private matters involving gas and pipeline companies.
