Surface damages are a common concern for landowners in Oklahoma, particularly those who lease their land for oil and gas exploration. Simply put, surface damages refer to any harm or disruption that occurs to the surface of the land as a result of oil and gas activities.
As a landowner, you are entitled to receive compensation for any surface damages that occur on your property. This compensation can include payment for lost crops, damage to fences or roads, and other related expenses. The amount of compensation you receive will depend on a variety of factors, including the severity of the damage and the terms outlined in your lease agreement.
The Importance of a Clear Lease Agreement
One of the most important things you can do as a landowner is to ensure that your lease agreement includes clear and detailed provisions related to surface damages. This can help to prevent any confusion or disputes down the road and can ensure that you receive fair compensation for any damage that occurs.
When negotiating your lease agreement, be sure to work with an experienced attorney who can help you understand your rights and negotiate favorable terms. This can help to protect your interests and ensure that you receive the full compensation you are entitled to.
