Energy / Oil & Gas

Oil and gas exploration has brought a surge in mineral development in Texas, and Whitaker Chalk has a long-standing presence in the oil and gas industry. We represent oil, gas and energy clients, including surface and minerals owners and energy lenders, in exploration, production, and transportation. Our energy/oil and gas attorneys understand the practical aspects of mineral development and have the legal and practical industry experience, as well as the technical backgrounds, to provide comprehensive solutions. We are uniquely suited to advise you in complex industry transactions, and if issues cannot be resolved without litigation, our experienced attorneys will handle your case in both state and federal court.

We consider the entire spectrum of mineral development, including:

  • Title, leasing and surface-use issues
  • Condemnation
  • Financing
  • Exploration and production
  • Transportation
  • Governmental regulations
  • Oil field personal injury and property damage
