Pipeline right of way agreements are among the most overlooked oil and gas agreements. Many landowners enter into right of way agreements without considering the long term consequences of having a pipeline operating on their land. In Arkansas, pipeline companies have the right of eminent domain. If a pipeline company is condemning your land, there are options to hold the pipeline company in check.

Surface Use and Surface Damage Negotiation

There is only one chance to get an oil and gas surface use and damage agreement right--the first time.

There are limited statutory protections for landowners, and an agreement with the oil and gas company is your best chance to obtain maximum protection for your land.
