I am part owner of mineral rights for a 100-acre tract.
I've been processing paper work with Landman "A" who represents Oil Co. "X" for about a year. We are now completing a stipulation of interest. Today, unsolicited, Landman "B" representing Oil Co. "Z" contacted me requesting similar forms, probate information and offered a stipulation of interest "to get payments" due to me.
1. Is it good business for me to provide the information requested to two landmen representing two different oil companies?
2. If I must pick one scenario, what are the most important issues to address and understand?
