Chalfant Properties, Inc. provides comprehensive client-centered land administration services to the energy industry. We have an experienced, qualified land team that specializes in, but is not limited to, the following areas:
Mineral and Leasehold Ownership reports
Chalfant Properties, Inc. has 45 years of accumulated take-off files to use to our clients' advantage, enabling us to provide them with the most timely and cost-effective approach to ownership reporting. The use of laptop computers in the courthouse allows us to manage information more efficiently for timely and accurate status reports. our experienced, computer-literate staff can save you money and -- often more importantly --time.
Oil and Gas Leasing
Technology notwithstanding, there is no substitute for experience, and Chalfant Properties' landmen have purchased thousands of Oil & Gas Leases, as well as mineral and royalty interests in every area of Texas, New Mexico and Oklahoma.
We have a close working relationship with many Oil & Gas Attorneys which allows us to quickly solve title problems.
In our 50+ years of experience we have met and worked with a large number of surface owners and our personal relationship with them can often make Right-of-Way acquisition easier.
We have completed Due Diligence projects for many of our clients. We have experience in both acquisitions and divestitures and have increased the efficiency -- thereby cutting costs -- by designing our own proprietary database to enter, catalogue and manipulate data to make faster, more meaningful reports for our clients.
Lease Records Administration
We manage lease files and oversee the administration of leases we acquire on behalf of client-companies, including payments of rentals, preparation of Assignments, Farmout Agreements for HBP acreage, etc....
Our efforts have resulted in a dramatic reduction in research time required by the client land staff, and a tremendous increase to their efficiency in-house.
We have put together numerous "3-D" seismic shoots ranging in size from 10 sections to 250 square miles. Our staff can handle every phase of a "3-D" shoot including permitting, oil and gas lease optioning, negotiating surface damages and bird-dogging the seismic trucks to make sure that everything has been done correctly.
Our proprietary database enables us to generate daily reports on our clients' lease acquisition projects. We manage everything from one-man jobs to entire crews, covering Texas, New Mexico and Oklahoma.
