Mineral Land Rights - What you need to know
Speaker: Levonne Louie
Mineral land is one of the most basic components of the oil and gas industry, but it’s often misunderstood. In this presentation you will learn about the two basic types of land, the two main categories of landowners as well as what land is acquired for oil and gas activities. In addition, you’ll learn about the main types of agreements that companies enter into amongst themselves and how these create the various interests that accountants work with. Do you know what is involved in assembling the land a company is drilling on? Do you know the key elements of the basic land agreements companies enter into? Are you lacking critical knowledge about mineral land and its ownership that could enhance the work you do every day? Bring your questions and I’ll attempt to demystify this complex subject.
