A place to start here could be to contact a Texas attorney who deals with consumer issues/small contract disputes. The Energy, Oil and Gas section is more about large matters involving drilling rights, mineral rights, etc. Good luck

Pipe runs straight down property line with 25' just for access easements on each side. Now there is going to be a turn on to my property about 3 to 4 feet in towards my property from NW corner.

If I understand your question and facts, your stating that the new pipe line will be on your property outside of the established easement which would require your consent otherwise you would be entitled to some compensation or a removal of the pipe line back within the easement already established....

Oil and gas law is complicated. The operator typically has the lion's share of the revenues because it pays for all the expenses and therefore has all the risk. If they spend a million and the hole is dry they eat all of the cost. However, a royalty interest owner pays nothing.

Your best (only) bet is to complain about this situation to a few members of the city council and ask them how to file a "complaint" about the incident. Most if not all municipal governments carry liability insurance to avoid having to pay "damages" for not doing their job: maintaining all city... Read more »

Depending on how they are seated, the plates could bang when vehicles pass over them. Hopefully they could send out... Read more »

Realistically, you may not be able to get anything fixed within the time necessary. Your best bet may be to move out of your apartment.

If you can't afford to move out now, here is, I think, your best option: Write a letter to your landlord. In your letter, list all the problems with your...

David Soble answered on Feb 11, 2019

Sounds strange. I would want to see the invoices first before paying for the alleged invoices. I am not sure how two different utility companies can service your one residence unless one provides the gas and the other provides electric. Trust but verify.

First, you will need to be sure that the production is actually production from your mineral interests. Your lease may have been limited to certain depths and so the fact that there is a well in your area or even on your land that is producing is not necessarily determinative. Secondly, if your...

Q: Do I have to give right a way for a pipeline for a oil company
Richard Winblad
Richard Winblad answered on Jan 9, 2019

This all depends on whether or not the property is being taken for eminent domain. If the company is a common carrier they may have this power. Eminent domain is often a condemnation for those who do not agree the the company's offer. Often companies offer a very low value.
