Due Diligence


With small and large transactions continuously happening, buyers’ and sellers’ due diligence are needed to maximize the value of every deal. That is why we have developed a due diligence process that is proven, repeatable, scalable, executed by our land experts and supported by best-in-class software for real-time project management and instant dashboard reports. We have the extensive knowledge and experience needed to tackle all phases of the process – from examining records to identifying and curing defects to quickly integrating all lease and title data.

We apply in-house and field experience to turn every stone and bring every potential issue to the surface during an acquisition. Among the critical items we check:

  • Confirm mineral and leasehold ownership
  • Check for taxes, liens, judgments and encumbrances
  • Review WI, NRI, ORRI burdens
  • Identify all defects associated with the leases and subject agreements
  • Identification, notation and fulfillment of all curative requirements
  • Ensure all DTO and DOTO requirements have been reviewed and satisfied
  • Review HBP status and confirm production and/or all obligation payments

  • Lease provision summarization, obligation review and integration
  • Transactional documents preparation
  • Surface and right-of-way title verification, including facilities and other real property
  • Review contracts for obligations and/or burdens on future interest
  • Identify consent to assign and preferential right to purchase provisions and send notifications to owners
  • Provide necessary documents needed for ownership transfers with current operators
  • Ensure local and national governmental compliance on all transactions
