During this time, I will cover important considerations for landowners negotiating mineral leases with oil and gas companies and for those negotiating pipeline easements.

Multi-County Program in Mertzon, TX: I will be headed out west on June 24 to speak at the Rangeland Water Conference in Mertzon, Texas. This multi-county program has been spearheaded by Shane Wigington, County Extension Agent in Irion County and will offer great information to area landowners. Also involved are Sutton, Schleicher, Reagan, Tom Green, and Sterling counties. My portion of the program, Current Issues in Texas Water Law, will kick things off at 9:00 am. After that, a host of other speakers will cover issues including drought outlook and management strategies, economic planning for ranches during a drought, key range plants for dry times, the state of the aquifer and water supply, and the 40 gallon water conservation challenge.
