I have negotiated hundreds of Pipeline Right‐of‐Way Agreements with approximately 50 different companies across Pennsylvania. I have also negotiated Water Impoundment Pond and Compressor Station Agreements on behalf of Landowner clients in the Marcellus Shale regions of Pennsylvania. There are many issues and concerns that a Landowner must consider when considering a Pipeline Right‐of‐Way Agreement or a Surface Use Agreement permitting a Water Impoundment Pond or Compressor Station on their property.

The Oil and Gas Lease serves as the foundation, blue print, and operating rules of the Landowner’s
relationship with the gas company. It is the gas lease and negotiated Addendum that defines how the gas company and its contractors operate on or under your property and also sets the terms of royalty payment calculations. The gas company looks to the Oil and Gas Lease as the “rulebook” defining what they can or cannot do on or under your property.
Growing up in rural Western Pennsylvania my parents instilled in me many values and characteristics that I am very proud of today. I moved to Eastern Pennsylvania over twenty years ago and have met and worked for hundreds of Landowners across rural Pennsylvania. Kindness, loyalty and the trust that a person’s word serves as their bond are qualities shared throughout the state.
Many Landowners across Pennsylvania are receiving solicitations by companies, partnerships and even hedge funds seeking to purchase their oil, gas and mineral rights. If you are ever seriously considering selling any of your oil, gas and mineral rights, your must contact an experienced oil and gas attorney to review the offer and Agreement of Sale before taking any other action. These offers are strongly slanted to the company seeking to buy your rights and the Agreements of Sale are designed to allow the company flexibility to withdraw or delay the offer. There are many legal tricks and serious pitfalls in these offers and Landowners cannot rely on the company or entity seeking to buy their rights to treat them fairly. The company is seeking to buy the Landowner’s oil and gas rights at the lowest rate possible and to provide as themselves as much flexibility in the offer as possible.
