Landowner Oil and Gas Leasing Education Packet


The following education packet is a compilation of materials published in March 2012 for North Carolina farmers and landowners on oil and gas rights leasing issues. Drawing on a wide range of resources, this packet attempts to provide an objective, but not exhaustive, introduction to the complexity of oil and gas right leasing.

This resource is not meant to be legal advice. RAFI-USA strongly recommends that landowners interested in leasing their oil and gas rights consult with an attorney before signing any contract.
