Oil & Gas

Fortunes have been made and lost on a single decision in the oil and gas industry.  Oil & gas exploration and production is just not as easy as it appears on television shows like “Dallas.”  Those who really understand the business know that deep gas exploration, stripper oil production, pipeline construction, mineral leasing, and other oil and gas activities can be dicey propositions.  Having the right people on your side is essential to being successful in these endeavors.  Bull & Barrett has broad knowledge and experience handling litigation and transactional matters specific to oil and gas interests. Our attorneys have represented operators, wireline companies, pressure pumping companies, saltwater disposal companies, well service companies, tool rental companies, heavy haul and hotshot trucking companies, royalty owners, minority and majority working interest owners, as well as many others.
