From leasing and right-of-way to permitting and seismic, WLS may interact with you at several stages of the oil and gas development process. Open and continuous communication is essential to meet the needs of our landowners and clients. WLS accomplishes this by fostering a collaborative environment where we act as liaison between landowner and client, ensuring maximum satisfaction for all involved. For WLS, educating you on the oil and gas process is crucial to our success.
This step involves identifying and mapping projects areas, including your land, by obtaining deeds and associated tax information to further describe land
We then locate property addresses and phone numbers for necessary contacts, also checking for state or federal land bids and regulations
Once we know that your property is located in our project area, a geographically favored area for exploration, we will contact you to set up a meeting
First, we bring to your attention the opportunity to develop your resources, explaining why we are reaching out to you in the first place
We will then look to educate you on the benefits & effects of oil and gas exploration on your property
Once you are comfortable, we can talk about the terms of the contract, as well as address any concerns or questions you may have
We then prepare and/or deliver the lease, right-of-way agreement, or other related documentation for your review and consideration
If permitting or seismic is involved, we will gather necessary land permits
Once terms have been agreed upon, we will have you sign the contract in front of a notary and ensure all necessary signatures are collected
We then perform title research to verify that you own the surface and or mineral rights
If the title comes back validating ownership, we will immediately order payment to ensure you are compensated in a timely manner
If title results come back inconclusive, we will invalidate the contract, notify you, and work with you to cure the title discrepancies if needed
Before we can issue a payment, we ensure the agreement is fully processed, by reviewing for accuracy and submitting it for legal recording at the courthouse
Once the agreement is processed and approved, we invoice the client for payment distribution
Once the client sends us payment, we disburse the funds to you, always striving for quick turnaround
If we are assisting the client with operation support, we would notify you prior to accessing your property and operations taking place
Throughout the entire process, you can count on us to represent your interests in relation to operational work, serving as liaison for surveying, construction, and seismic activities
We continually work with you to resolve any concerns or issues that may transpire as a result of operational work
