Fee is $85 for 1.0 Self Study Credit (Audio & Materials Below) As the infrastructure in western North Dakota’s oil fields continues to grow, more landowners are facing the decision of whether to allow everything from pipelines to salt water disposal wells on their property. While it is important to know the fair dollar value when negotiating with oil and gas companies that want to use their property for everything from wellpads, pipelines, access roads, to salt water disposal wells, before signing any right of ways, easements, or damage agreements, it is critical for landowners to know how to protect themselves and their property from any adverse affects that can accompany such uses. 


Whether it is maintaining the landowners fences on the property, requiring pipeline flow meters and cut-off valves, keeping the area free of weeds and debris, or providing additional payment for access roads and transmission lines, there are many factors to consider when negotiating with oil companies for use of the surface.
