This educational program’s goal is to help landowners better understand oil, gas, and mineral leasing agreements, pitfalls and concerns in contracts, and their options regarding whether or not to lease and the changes that can be negotiated to an oil and gas lease. This meeting will feature the district geologist with the DEQ Office of Oil, Gas and Minerals, a representative of the oil and gas industry, an oil and gas attorney that represents landowners in lease negotiation and an MSU Extension specialist that discussed in layman's terms a standard oil and gas lease and the options mineral rights owners have in lease negotiations. There will a question-and-answer period.
