First time post and wanted to thank all the folks working hard to make this site a great resource for mineral owners. My questions today is concerning an old oil and gas lease my mom Susan Kay Root, signed on September,15th 2008 with Baytech, LLP covering lands in Pecos and Reeves Counties. I have inherited these minerals and signed leases. At some point Patriot Resources became involved and now all my mail comes from Carla Petroleum Inc. Dose anyone know anything about these companies and why new companies keep getting involved. My second question is what sort of compensation should I receive if any for signing an amendment to an oil and gas lease? Would all the folks involved in this lease be required to sign the same docs from Carla Petroleum or would this be an opportunity to have your oil and gas attorney respond with a counter to the amended lease sent by Carla Petroleum. My last question is if anyone here can recommend a good oil and gas attorney in or near Reeves County to review these amendments and make sure I'm getting the best possible deal and being protected. Attached are the amendments. 06251501.PDF
Thanks to all!
