In 2015 LandLine News launched, aiming to be the “go to” source for land professionals to stay up-to-date with what is happening in the energy industry, primarily oil and gas, by being a free and open platform for novice and experienced professionals. Since then lease analysts, division order specialists, landmen, managers, and techs have all been able to see announcements of various acquisitions, keep up to date with relevant law changes, post prospects for sale, distribute resumes, and find out about educational and social events in their area from various institutions.
Since launching, LandLine News has had a couple changes, but now the biggest change is here! The Professional Forum on LandLine News is already filling up with questions, and answers! In the forum anyone can ask a question anonymously or provide feedback to another user using their existing social media account.
Why a Forum?
LandLine News was started with the goal of assisting the energy industry, our industry, and the people in it. Being able to ask questions and get advice is a must when learning a profession, working through a difficult problem, or trying to improve a process. What better way to assist the individuals in “land” facets of the energy sector than to facilitate communication between peers, each with a unique perspective shaped by their education, work history, and experiences? Users can, and have, asked questions on a variety of topics and a wide range of complexities, demonstrating the diversity of our industry and the people working it.
What Are Some Topics Being Discussed in the LandLine News Professional Forum
• What is the difference between a Horizontal PUGH clause and a Vertical PUGH clause?
• What’s a good plat making program?
• Do you have to have a consideration amount in a lease?
• Current lease bonus per acre in Goliad County, Texas
