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.
