Role Of Oil Companies While Leasing Before The Auction

The oil and gas companies make it a point to handle all the paperwork and make the auction a smooth process for the client. Leases take time as the best of the bid needs to be earmarked by the deciding government agencies after completing the paperwork.

Thus, if one talks from the legal point of view, then this process takes some part of the time and thus must be carried out accordingly. It might get delayed in some of the cases due to any of the reasons either known or unknown to the parties involved.

Oil companies willing to take up the lease and go ahead with the process will then start with the pricing part or the negotiations if any by any chance.

The site for oil drilling needs to be surveyed by the professionals possessing the complete knowledge of the same.

Once this is done, the government is made aware of the same and necessary groundwork is done to further the process.

This whole process generally takes around a month or so but must be carried out the way it should be without missing out on anything or taking it lightly due to any of the reasons.

Digging the oil well is another important task which must be carried out keeping into consideration various factors which must not be ignored at any costs at any point of time due to any of the reasons.

It might take some weeks or may be a month itself to complete this task and thus bring the same to the eyes of the government agencies involved after the completion of the necessary paperwork and groundwork too.

Last but not the least, government agencies need to look after the production of oil or gas from the well which has been dug once the lease is finalized and assigned to a particular party.

Thus, make it sure that the clients get the much needed help at every step and does not happen to lose any kind of business due to any of the reasons.

Leasing the oil wells involves certain costs depending on the lease size and other pricing details. This must be given due consideration by the companies and not taken lightly at any point of time. The cost is graded accordingly and variable factors kept in mind. Majorly all this costs is incurred on behalf of the clients and includes the following:

  • Research before the sale has been carried out and in the process checking the parcels
  • Bidding on behalf of the client and taking proxy decisions accordingly
  • Taking the final report from the geologists as per the experience and knowledge gained

The actual size of the lease handled by companies generally tend to vary from what is quoted or told in the market.

Thus at times, one needs to work on approximations from the Colorado and Wyoming federal and state governments.

All this is carried out via email and thus holds proper record of the deals or the auctions being carried out.
