Our attorneys represent oil and gas royalty interest owners who may have been improperly compensated by operators and lessors. We also hold big oil and gas companies accountable for unjustly profiting from our clients through contract manipulation and improper deduction policies.
Provost Umphrey’s oil and gas attorneys have extensive knowledge and experience in understanding the highly complex oil and gas litigation sector.
Our firm has recovered millions of dollars in settlements for royalty owners including:
- $36.7 million settlement to resolve litigation against Repsol Oil and Gas USA, LLC, formerly Talisman Energy USA, Inc., for royalty owners
- $8.4 million in settlements for our clients from a Texas operator who improperly calculated and paid royalty owners as a result of sham sales transactions with an affiliate and improper deductions under express lease terms.
- $11.6 million in settlements for Oklahoma oil and gas royalty owners from an operator who improperly deducted costs and fuel necessary to making gas production marketable.
Our firm has recently filed two class actions in the state of Oklahoma and is seeking class certification in a lawsuit against an operator that concealed “earnout” payments from miner owner/lessees and failed to pay royalties on such proceeds when received.
If you have mineral rights, royalties, and/or other oil and gas interests that are being compromised by oil and gas companies, lessors, or operators, our firm may be able to help you recover lost earnings. Call us today.
