"Working Together Sets Us Apart"

Choose HbK Energy to...

Price your Minerals, Oil & Gas

If you have been asked to buy or sell mineral rights, how will you determine what’s fair and appropriate? In many instances, clients come to us with situations in which their real estate appraisals have largely omitted the price of mineral rights contained beneath the surface. Comparable sales don’t exist currently…and with production from shale reserves in their infancy, how can a fair price be determined?

Financially Assess Leases & Easements

Ordinary Income or capital gain? How is the Hold Harmless obligation funded? Does severing the mineral rights from the surface rights make financial sense? When is 17.5% less than that? How much will the arbitration provision cost me in time and money if we have to use it? What do my audit rights allow me to do and how much will it cost? What are the financial results of assigning my lease? What must I do if I donate my lease or mineral rights? If taxes increase, am I responsible to pay them and how much is my responsibility? Is a “fee” the same as a “tax”?

Finding a market for your property entails considerably more than simply picking up a phone. You have to understand the market, consider your desires for the land and appreciate the risks and rewards at stake. Not all developers are suited for all lands.
