Leasing Tips

Take your time:  Leasing your mineral rights is an important decision.  Take your time and make sure you fully understand everything about the process and what you are committing to.  Time and time again we hear from mineral owners who were pressured into signing an offer before they were ready.  Leasing your minerals is a long term decision that should not be taken lightly.  Read as much as possible, consult qualified professionals, and wait until you are comfortable before signing anything.

Understand the Terms:  When you sign a mineral lease, you need to understand all the terms of a mineral lease.  Don’t rely on someone else to review it and hope they were looking out for your best interests.  Make sure that what your signing is going to benefit you.  We have an entire blog post dedicated to helping your understanding the mineral lease agreement terms.

Understand the Value:    Before you sign a lease agreement, make sure you fully understand the value of your mineral rights.  There are a number of factors that affect the value of your minerals.  To effectively negotiate the best possible price and terms for your mineral lease, you will need to know what factors make your lease valuable.  Learn more about the value of leasing mineral rights.

Market your property the right way:  Before you accept the first offer you receive, make sure that offer represents a true market value offer.  The best way to make sure an offer is truly market value is to get your property in front of as many people as possible.  We recommend all mineral owners market their property online which exposes your property to industry professionals from all over the country.  We have had consistent success with US Mineral Exchange who specialize in leasing mineral rights.

Seek professional advice:  If you have questions, don’t hesitate to contact an industry professional.  Oil and Gas is a complicated field that can be difficult to navigate.  Don’t hesitate to reach out to professionals who can help you better understand the process.  Marcellus Mineral Owners was designed specifically for mineral owners in the Marcellus Shale and we offer a free consultation for any mineral owner looking for advice and resources.
