AAPL Introduction to Field Land Practices Seminar

Date:                Thursday and Friday, July 12-13, 2007

Where:             University of Oklahoma, Norman, Oklahoma


We’re pleased to announce that AAPL will present its next Introduction to Field Land Practices Seminar in Norman, OK. The seminar will be held Thursday and Friday July 12-13, 2007, at the University of Oklahoma, Norman, OK.

 The Introduction to Field Land Practices seminar is a two-day program designed for the six-month to five year landman and is well suited for both the field landman and the in-house landman wanting to learn more about field land practices. It can serve as a primer for those starting out in field landwork, as a refresher and general review for the more experienced landman, or as an opportunity for the company landman to learn more about field landwork. The material presented will build on the foundation acquired on-the-job and will solidify skills recently acquired. It is also suitable for those interested in learning some of the basics of landwork and what a landman does. This is a basic but fast-paced, interactive course, designed to equip the beginner landman and others with the knowledge necessary for success. The course is NOT intended to qualify attendees to be a landman but will introduce them to the basic principals and practices of the profession.

 The first day covers details about the very basics of land work – real property and contract law, land descriptions, conveyancing, the oil and gas lease, and basic interest calculations. The second day consists of discussion and examples of conducting courthouse record checks, preparing oil and gas documents (lease, draft, purchase report), conducting a title exams, submitting a lease package to a client, on-line resources for landmen, professional decorum, and ethics.

 All registrants are invited to the Welcoming Reception hosted by AAPL and the OU Energy Management Students. The reception will immediately follow the first day of the seminar and it will be held in the Beaird Lob Lounge, on campus.

 A bound book of class materials will be provided to all participants. The registration fee for AAPL members is $300, for non-members $400. Each registrant should bring a basic hand-held calculator.
