The Landman will be issued with a map of the property to be hired by the company. This map
will give areas where the firm wishes to drill, and it is the Landman’s work to find who possess
the property and how to lease it. Land is spaced by section, township, and range. A section is
640 acres, and a township and range is made of thirty-six sections. The section map is split up
into sixteen different quarters, each of which is 40 acres. The firm will always stock Landman
with up to five sections for research.
Property holder can be done via local records. After the land sectors are found, the Landman
can make a trip to the county tribunal to find out who is the holder of the property and the
minerals under it. Many times, there will be more than one holder, really if the piece of land is
big. Good luck, land holder is not exhibitive of mineral holder.

drilled exterior of such distances and at specific ranges. The Texas Railroad Commission (also
known as the Railroad Commission of Texas, or RRC) is in charge of maintaining records of all
the active wells in the area, so this is the best place to begin.

holders and obtaining a lease. The Landman will be given a dollar amount to offer the mineral
holder. The lease will contain the following information:

and entry. In Texas, this is the Railroad Commission. The RRC will need the oil firm to give
critical reports on drilling steps prior a permit is given. Once the license is got, the drilling work
has to usually remain agreeable with several laws. The firm will have to give reports all the way
drilling to get assurance. Lastly, the Landman is in charge for getting the holders when drilling
will start and for agreeing by the lease groups.
