What are oil and gas rights?

Oil and gas rights are an element of the wider topic of mineral rights. A segment of real property may be rich in natural resources, such as precious metals or water. Energy-producing substances such as oil and gas can be lucrative for those who capture them for consumption.

A majority of oil and gas laws are state laws. The federal government has relatively little control over oil and gas law. However, it is involved in leasing and permitting on federal lands. In addition, the federal government also controls offshore drilling.
