• our consulting philosophy on mineral leases

Our Philosophy

The United States has always been the land of opportunity, and this is particularly true in the oil and gas industry.  Did you know that most mineral interests are privately owned?  This means that there is money to be made by individuals who own the land and mineral rights, not just big oil companies.

But it’s not just about money.  At Western Mineral Consultants, we believe in the responsible stewardship of our natural resources and protecting your land interests.    We firmly believe that we can balance what very well could be one of the greatest economic opportunities for you and your family with doing the right thing for the land above, around, and within your mineral interests.

All too often, we see evidence that operators put profits above stewardship at the expense of our children and grandchildren’s environmental future.  It doesn’t have to be that way.   We will help you protect the rivers and streams, ground water, fertile farmlands, livestock, and important pasturelands that drew your families to this land years ago.

Did you know that through negotiations between private mineral owners and oil companies, America has the potential to create hundreds of thousands of new jobs and keep one-half trillion dollars here at home?

It’s true — America sends nearly $500 billion overseas every year to foreign countries to buy the oil we need when we are quite capable of producing our own oil here at home.  We believe that creating new jobs, incurring less debt, and being more independent is good for America, and as a mineral interest owner we can help you benefit as well because you own the valuable oil and gas under your interests.

With so much at stake for you, your family, and the environment, it’s critical to get all the terms of the Oil and Gas Lease right the first time.  We will work with you to assure you get the most fair, equitable, and profitable contract possible.
