Clear Title, Determine Ownership Rights
In Texas, New Mexico and other oil states, land is often owned by numerous parties. Determining each party’s rights regarding surface and mineral ownership can be difficult. Disputes over ownership and use can cause substantial delays to pipeline and drilling projects, resulting in large financial loss.
