Negotiating an oil and gas lease can be complex and confusing.  Today, Nicholas Miller is here to help offer some practical advice and tips for mineral owners who may be negotiating a lease agreement.  Nicholas walks us through how the leasing process typically works, what terms are usually contained in the offer letter and a lease form, and how he approaches negotiations.  From the "going" royalty rate in Texas to the first terms he seeks to delete from the agreement, Nicholas is a wealth of knowledge and this podcast will be helpful to anyone dealing with mineral leases!
