Jason Duke
Staff Attorney

Because of my past experience working with oil and gas companies, I am able to identify common issues, but also more nuanced issues that require great attention to detail and thinking outside of the box. The end goal is always to keep projects moving without sacrificing quality of work.

Jason Duke focuses his practice on energy law. As a landman for six years, he has a vast amount of experience in the oil and gas industry. Jason has worked with clients from leasehold acquisition to divestiture, including drafting of runsheets, title reports, curative instruments, and other documents as necessary. He also has experience working in-house with clients on various projects, including division of interest maintenance and expert witness work.

Representative Experience
  • Represent oil and gas companies in connection with the acquisition and divestiture of producing and non-producing oil and gas assets.
  • Prepare original drilling title opinions, division order title opinions, and supplemental drilling and division order title opinions.
  • Examine documents recorded with county clerks and the general land office for the preparation of drilling, division order, and acquisition title opinions covering fee, federal, and state lands.
  • Review purchase and sale agreements, joint operating agreements, pooling and unitization agreements, deeds, assignments, and other agreements related to exploration and development.
  • Research and advise clients on various issues associated with the exploration and development of oil and gas.
  • Draft curative oil and gas title documents, including stipulation of interest.
