Energy Law


At Sapp & Sturgill, our oil and gas attorneys started out

as either Field Landmen or In-House Landmen before

working as oil and gas attorneys.  This experience gives

us a unique understanding of the oil and gas industry.  

We represent homeowners, oil and gas companies,

investors, working interest owners, royalty owners, farm and ranch owners, and other stakeholders in oil and gas transactions and contracts.  

We prepare, review and negotiate oil and gas contracts and agreements of all kinds, while representing our clients in significant acquisitions and sales of producing properties, as well as related financing and loan transactions.  Oil and gas transactions often involve purchase and sale agreements, oil and gas exploration agreements, operating agreements, and related loan documents, all of which we handle. 

Our energy transaction attorneys represent oil and gas companies and investors with respect to exploration and production issues and in divestiture of producing and nonproducing properties.  We also advise oil and gas finance and capital investment clients concerning property and due diligence matters.  Examples of contracts we handle include: 

  • Participation Agreements

  • Farmouts

  • Areas of mutual interest

  • Exploration Agreements

  • Development Agreements

  • Joint Venture Agreements

We bring a wealth of knowledge and resources to each transaction we handle, focusing on delivering high-quality legal advice with regard for our clients' business and economic interests.  

If you are ready to conduct an oil and gas or other energy transaction or if you need to run chain of title, contact our office to speak with an attorney about your concerns or questions.
