Episode 6 discusses oil and gas (“O&G”) rights where Shale Leasing occurs.  O&G companies lease the right to produce these lands. The O&G owner is the typically the same person who owns the surface property, but not always. In some cases, these rights have been severed. There are ways to determine if you are the owner if these rights. There are also some reasons that you might consider severing the oil and gas rights from your surface property.
