…you need a Landowner Protection Act like the one OGAP helped get passed in New Mexico.
“This new law gives landowners a powerful tool to negotiate with oil and gas companies, so it should result in less conflict between operators and surface owners,” said Bill Sauble, NMCGA President. “This law is the nation’s most comprehensive landowner’s rights bill in that it requires notification, surface use agreements and compensation.” Sauble went on to state the new law requires that an oil or gas company reclaim — or to substantially restore – the surface to the condition it existed prior to oil and gas operations.
This is what we need in Texas and this is just one of the many reasons we need Texas OGAP
