Oil, Gas & Mineral Law

 

Overview

Armbrecht Jackson LLP has been Alabama’s premier firm for the oil and gas industry in Alabama for many decades.  In addition to extensive expertise concerning the relevant legal issues, our lawyers have acquired a thorough understanding of the industry’s business aspects.   We advise clients on all aspects of drilling, field development and operations, royalty and severance tax computation, acquisition of interest, contract drafting and negotiation, pipeline right-of-way acquisition, and underground gas storage.  Our attorneys have played a key role in drafting a number of Alabama’s oil and gas statutes and Rules and Regulations of the State Oil and Gas Board.  

Involvement in Complex and Landmark Oil and Gas Matters

Our attorneys have litigated complex and landmark cases involving oil, gas, and other natural resources, such as:

We frequently represent clients in proceedings before the State Oil and Gas Board of Alabama, including proceedings to establish special field rules, to force pool drilling units, to authorize fieldwide unitization, and to establish special gas storage rules.  

Our attorneys have extensive experience in reviewing title to mineral rights, oil, gas, coal, timber and other natural resources.  We also have extensive experience in acquiring rights-of-way for pipelines and, when necessary, pursuing condemnation proceedings to acquire the necessary rights.

Our attorneys advise clients in the financial aspects of oil and gas exploration as well. This includes the calculation and payment of royalties, the computation of severance tax payments, acquisition of sale of mineral properties, and financing transactions, including mortgages of offshore interests.
