I have over 34 years experience as an Independent Petroleum Landman. I became a Landman after working as a paralegal for Oil & Gas Attorneys for 8 years. My first 2 years were spent specializing in Well History and Research with the Louisiana Department of Conservation, then moving into clearing title defects and handling title curative for oil and gas properties for the next 6 years. Subsequent thereto, I handled title issues, buying oil and gas leases and settling surface damages. I also acquired acreage for drilling prospects in excess of 10,000 acres. I also became a mineral/royalty owner commencing in 2004 and have found that I can help many people when they have reached the point in their lives they feel converting their minerals or royalties into a cash asset benefits them.

I love the excitement of the chase. The research required to uncover the facts; meeting new people and new situations; the unbelievable numbers that you only see in the oil and gas business; and learning, and learning and learning. In this business, there is always more to learn.
I've already achieved more than I had ever dreamed or imagined. I have already found "the needle in the haystack", not just once, but several times. I would love to have a geology degree and had enrolled at our local university a few years ago. However, my work and family schedule was not conducive to pursuing -I was working 10-12 hour days 6 -7 days a week and felt the timing was not right.
There are so many facets in the oil and gas industry. It takes a Team of Engineers, Geologists, Landmen, Surveyors to get a well drilled - and there is no guarantee a well will produce.

Carol, I always advise a landowner to counter any first offer that is made to them. In your situation, where the initial offer was $500 per acre with a 3/16ths royalty, I would suggest you ask for $750/acre
