Oil & Gas Transactions

Lathrop GPM has an active practice representing clients in the oil and gas exploration and production industry, including acquisitions and dispositions, joint development agreements, equity investments and structured finance transactions.

Our team’s experience assisting in oil and gas transactions includes: 

  • In a $6.6 billion acquisition in the Permian Basin, we advised a major E&P company in the development of its recently acquired Delaware Basin asset and expansion of Federal units to increase drilling capacity. Advised the client on corporate entity due diligence and acquisition title opinions, and completed due diligence title work in determining ownership and overrides on all acquired parcels.
  • Counseled a major industry entity in a $1.6 billion leasehold acquisition in the Bakken Shale.
  • Represented buyer in a $620 million transaction for an operator of oil and gas assets based in Texas. On an extremely tight deadline, our team helped the client buy leasehold and mineral rights from a major oil and gas entity in Wyoming, advising on due diligence, review of exhibits, purchase and sale matters, and mortgage opinions.
  • Represented client in a $78 million transaction involving the acquisition of oil and gas leases – coordinating communications among our client, an out-of-state broker, and the internal team to complete due diligence and close on schedule.
