In the city of Houston, the energy, oil, and gas sector makes up a large and important industry. The energy industry can be difficult to understand, especially when it comes to the legal requirements that must be met in order to begin work and challenges that arise after the job is complete. Navigating the laws, both state and federal, that apply to the energy sector can be difficult due to the complexities surrounding every aspect of energy extraction. For instance, once an extraction project is allowed to begin, getting it up and running is expensive and any heated disagreement can stop it in its tracks. Additionally, ownership rights of oil and gas can be especially complicated, as different laws govern oil and gas before and after it has been captured.
