Hey guys, I have an oil company drilling on some land I own (only surface). SUA states nothing about water rights, only damages for pad build, etc. I was wondering if signing this without any mention of use or rights to water will take away my water rights I own with my surface?
I am not an attorney, so I do not know the precise answer to your question, but I do know that the agreement that they send you is not sacrosanct. You can add water rights, etc to the agreement and negotiate any points in that agreement. You might consider speaking with an oil and gas attorney before you sign.
