The core of our practice at Perry & Shields, LLP is the examination of oil and gas title for drilling and production purposes.  We have examined title and drafted Original Title Opinions, Division Order Title Opinions, and Supplemental Title Opinions in the Barnett Shale, Eagle Ford Shale, Permian Basin, Woodbine - Eagle Ford Shale, and Haynesville Shale plays of Texas, as well as the Permian Basin play of New Mexico, the Fayetteville Shale play of Arkansas, the Williston Basin play of North Dakota, and the Marcellus Shale play of Pennsylvania.  

Our team of legal professionals has experience in examining title from title abstracts, runsheets and associated copies, or from electronic runsheets with electronic copies attached, which are becoming very common.  In the alternative, we are available to perform standup examinations of title to suit the needs of our clients.
