Gas, oil and mineral rights: in California, truly a big deal

In a state like California, which possesses varied natural resources in an amount virtually unparalleled anywhere else, many individuals, governmental regulatory agencies and advocacy groups of all stripes pay closest scrutiny to things like oil, gas and minerals.

So too, of course, do lean and smart businesses that compete vigorously against each other in identifying and exploring new resources-related opportunities and protecting their legal rights.

It is hardly surprising that issues surrounding gas, oil and minerals are complex and many in California, which commands a wealth of such resources scattered in large areas across the state. Oil and gas drilling and production is a flatly huge industry in Kern County, portions of the Central Valley and across the Los Angeles basin.

And thus competition is, understandably, vigorous and sometimes contentious, with business rivalries encompassing a wide range of resource-related matters. As we note on a relevant page of the Bakersfield-based business and commercial law firm of Brumfield & Hagan, LLP, gas, oil and mineral rights-centered issues span a broad universe of concerns, including matters like these:

  • Acquisition of rights to drill
  • Oil exploration considerations
  • Claim challenges and defenses
  • Production-related challenges
  • Negotiation, drafting and enforcement of agreements
  • Real estate and construction considerations

Obviously, the above list is but a small sampling of the matters that can suddenly loom large for a California business in the volatile oil, gas and mineral business.

Our law firm diligently represents business clients with all their legal needs as they seek to flourish in this competitive industry. Our lawyers collectively command many decades of on-point experience, and seek in every matter to provide closely tailored service that fully promotes the best interests of our clients.
