What are royalty disputes?
When an oil or gas company and a landowner enter into a lease allowing the company to extract resources from the land, it is expected that the company will pay the full royalties required under the agreement. Unfortunately, many landowners discover that they do not receive the financial benefits to which they are entitled.
Some oil and gas companies are guilty of the following:
- Using complex accounting schemes to reduce the royalties that they are required to pay
- Forming business entities that skim proceeds from the extraction of oil and gas
- Charging excessive fees to landowners
