Oil & Gas

Steamboat Lawyers Group, PLLC focuses on the natural resource practice area which involves the protection, use and regulation of land, mineral rights, water, wildlife and other naturally occurring resources.

Recent years have seen investment in new exploration and production projects as well as new technologies. Meanwhile, the public desires a move from an oil-driven economy to a new gas-driven economy, which is a result of environmental factors and developing technologies in the oil and gas industry. Currently, the leading natural resource minerals in Colorado consist of petroleum, coal, molybdenum, natural gas, sand and gravel, and uranium.

The attorneys at Steamboat Lawyers Group, PLLC provide representation for landowners and developers in all matters involving oil and gas law in Colorado. We help individuals and companies throughout Colorado, and specifically Moffat, Routt, Grand, Eagle, and other surrounding counties, achieve maximum value for their interests.

From a landowner perspective, our clients rely on us to understand the needs of their projects and to pursue their goals through reasonable, but effective negotiation with the participating oil and gas companies. From the developer perspective, our clients rely on our research and knowledge of intestate succession, probate, and other legal issues surrounding the oil and gas industry, negotiating oil and gas rights to explore, acquire, and develop properties, or to gain access to properties, including private land and federal lands, as well as analyzing mineral interest title searches.
