I will try to answer any question you have. Even if I reject a question, I still will give a shot at what I would do in your position. The only questions I will not take a shot at would be a highly technical engineering or geological question. I am beginning to see quite a few questions from land men and other oil companies and that doesn't matter to me either. I will attempt to help.

I can answer oil and gas division order questions. I am most knowledgeable about as the purchaser side of the oil and condensate production. I can offer suggestions regarding probate and basic transfers of working, override, and royalty interests. DISCLAIMER: I am not a lawyer. I have seem and know what my company for instance accepts pertaining to these matters. Being from the purchasing end (and not the operator side) I do not have much experience with calculations or valuing property or minerals. I do not deal with acquisitions, exploration, or development of leases either.

I can answer questions regarding hydraulic starting systems for gasoline and diesel engines typically used on oil platforms and other areas where electronic ignition is not allowed due to the risk of spark. Questions about other areas of the industry are outside of my expertise and unfortunately will be rejected. Please do not ask me for legal advice, or questions about property or mineral rights.
