What is an Oil and Gas Landman?

An oil and gas landman is a member of the oil and gas industry that deals primarily with the acquisition, divestiture, maintenance and negotiations of public and private mineral rights of the properties used in the development of energy resources in the United States.

The Petroleum Industry

The global processes of exploration, extraction, refining, transporting (often by oil tankers and pipelines), and marketing petroleum products. The largest volume products of the industry are fuel oil and gasoline (petrol).

Electricity from Oil

In the United States, oil is used mostly for transportation or home heating purposes, although a small percentage is used as a fuel for electricity generating plants. As with other fossil fuels, oil is found in underground reservoirs.

Black Diamond Oil & Gas Explorations

There are various oil resources in the planet that need to be unravel to continuously suffice the world’s needs. In this regard, Black Diamond Marketing and Promotion, Ltd. (BDMPL) is exerting all efforts in harnessing oil & gas exploration techniques. These efforts have promising results since BDDECL’s techniques are well developed.

The first task of finding oil and gas underneath the Earth is assigned to a geologist. The search starts by examining the earth’s surface rocks and terrain with the help of satellite images and other equipment like gravity meters, magnometers and sand sniffers. The most common method used by geologists in finding oil is seismology. Seismology creates shock waves that pass through hidden rock layers. The geologists then interpret these waves that are reflected back to the surface to determine if oil is present.

Once the geologist has determined a site, it must be surveyed to identify boundaries. Studies should also be conducted to in determining possible environmental impacts. Various permits, licenses, and certificate should also be acquired. Surface casings for the land is then prepared. This is a large-diameter, low-pressure pipe that is designed to protect the earth’s aquifer from contamination during the drilling process.

When the surface casing has been installed, actual drilling can begin. Once the hole reaches its intended depth, the logging begins. Logging is the process of determining which of the formations between the surface and the bottom of the well contain oil and gas. This is also the process of determining which of the formations contain merely water.

Upon completely gathering all the needed information, a decision has to be made to either plug or complete the well. This is called the “casing point decision.” If a decision is made to complete the well, then more casing is lowered to reach the bottom of the hole.

Well stimulation follows the decision of completing the well. This process consists of various techniques used to loosen the oil that is trapped in the porous rock. Hydraulic facing is the most commonly used method for this. This involves pumping water at extremely high pressure into the hole until a crack develops in the rock formation. Water and sand are then pumped into the crack. The sand then holds the cracks open until all the oil escapes the rock and flows into the casing. After this process, the well will be completed.

Once the well is already completed, it will be moved to the production stage. The oil and gas streams are separated. The gas flows into a gas pipeline that carries it to processing plants and then onto the consumer for purchase.
