HPS Oil & Gas Properties, Inc.

HPS Understands That Your Project Has a Timeline.

Time management and quick, accurate results are key to the success of a project. However, the efficiency and timeliness of a project is determined by the research conducted before a project ever begins. HPS provides extensive research services to ensure your project runs smoothly, and on time.

Our research team is knowledgeable and experienced in lease, title and production review. The majority of our research is conducted locally through parish or county records to ensure we receive all necessary information and history before initiating a new lease. We thoroughly review each lease, prospect files, agreements, and assignments, and ensure all payments and responsibilities have been met. Our goal during this process is to protect our clients from any misrepresentation or wrongful information. We ensure each project follows local, state and federal laws, legislations, governmental regulations and public policies.
