Mineral Rights

The ownership and management of mineral rights can be a complex process. While there are companies that make a business out of buying and selling mineral rights, many mineral right owners acquire their interest as a result of a real estate transaction or an inheritance from a relative. The mineral right gives the owner the ability to explore for, develop and produce any minerals that may exist on the property. In the oil and gas industry, the mineral owner frequently signs an oil and gas lease with a company specializing in the exploration and production of oil and gas. Kinney Law Office can help mineral owners develop a strategy to use their mineral rights to achieve their personal and financial goals. We believe that every mineral owner should benefit from the development of their resources in a way that protects their interests. Contact our office today to find out how we can help you!

Oil and Gas Law

Oil and gas operations are some of the most capital intensive projects in the world. In this field, understanding the law alone is not enough. Clients need lawyers that understand the broad range of issues that are unique to exploration, development and extraction of petroleum. Kinney Law Office has years of experience in supporting clients with oil and gas projects. From production sharing contracts to gas transportation agreements to leases and mineral transfers, our unique knowledge of the field and application of technology solutions such as economic modeling and document automation can make the difference in successfully negotiating and structuring these projects.

Project Finance

Project financing transactions are a unique method of financing long-term investment in infrastructure and industrial projects that rely on project revenues rather than the balance sheets of the project sponsors. Examples of these types of projects can include highway and transportation projects, independent power producer projects, telecommunications projects and extractive industries projects. The success of these projects is dependent on proper structuring and a clear contractual framework that protects lenders and project sponsors, while allowing each to enjoy their respective financial rewards. Kinney Law Office, using our years of experience and technological tools such as advanced document automation and detailed financial models, is uniquely positioned to support project sponsors, host governments and lenders in negotiating and developing these types of projects.

In the 21st Century, energy from renewable sources such as wind and solar are making up an ever increasing share of our overall energy mix. These technologies come with a unique set of challenges and proper evaluation and structuring of renewable energy projects is critical to ensuring their long-term success and viability. Our strategic location on the wind-swept plains of Wyoming had provided an opportunity to work with state governments to address these challenges from the very beginning. Kinney Law Office understands both the unique sets of issues and benefits for landowners, private companies and utilities that come from development of renewable energy projects.
