Known as one of the most mineral-rich geographical locations, Texas is one of the leading producers of oil and gas in the nation and the world. Many oil and gas drilling companies take advantage of the lucrative opportunities to explore the natural resource-rich lands in the area. Tapping into large properties and conducting careless or negligent drilling operations can lead to serious property damages and can even contaminate public sources of water.
One of the largest shale formations in the world, the Eagle Ford Shale extends throughout the Southern Texas region and covers hundreds of thousands of acres of land near the Western Gulf Basin. Nearly 300 oil and gas rigs are operated throughout this vast span of land. Each rig is used to drill, explore, and collect valuable oil, wet and dry gas, and other natural resources.
Our firm has successfully represented numerous landowners through property contamination claims, including for the following:
With hundreds of companies lining up to stake a claim in the Eagle Ford Shale formation, the land has easily become of the largest targets for lucrative oil and gas drilling in the world. Unfortunately, many oil and gas companies are primarily consumed with turning a profit. Rather than ensuring the safety of the public at large, property contamination claims have skyrocketed.
Owning a portion of land that you can call your own can be indicative of a lifetime of investment and achievement. More importantly, your land is probably a lasting mark of your family's heritage and legacy. When an oil or gas company fails to act within the parameters of the law and wreaks extensive damages or even irreversible contamination to your property, you deserve justice.
