Natural Resources Law

From the exploration, production and transportation of oil and natural gas, to issues of resource allocation, ecology and environment, to interpretation of laws and policies designed to protect lands, water, air, wildlife and habitat, Strong Pipkin has a sophisticated practice representing stakeholders in natural resource controversies.

Much of the firm’s work in this area involves litigation, arbitration and consultation regarding disputes arising in all phases and streams of energy operations, including:

  • environmental damage claims caused by drilling, operations and spills, including “legacy” claim litigation
  • oil field nuisance, negligence, trespass, strict liability and unjust enrichment litigation
  • condemnation, easement and right-of-way litigation
  • royalty, measurement and gas balancing disputes
  • contractual and indemnity disputes
