Our Wide Range of Experience

Some examples of recent oil and gas matters that Kilgore & Kilgore has undertaken include:

  • Mineral owners were induced to grant oil and gas leases based upon misrepresentations by leasing brokers acting for a major oil company. The case was settled by increasing the amount of royalty received by the mineral owners.
  • A large oil company claimed a lease had been extended by drilling operations, contrary to the lease provisions regarding extensions. The case was settled by execution of a new lease with more favorable terms.
  • Underpayment of royalty and working interests occurring by use of an incorrect reference price and by reason of non-arm’s length expense declarations was resolved by citing applicable case law and use of field research findings.
  • An IRS mineral valuation issue was resolved by presenting a mineral valuation methods briefing with updated findings.
