In Episode 3, Clinton is joined by Stephen Ahl, a partner at Langley & Banack’s San Antonio and Carrizo Springs Offices and a member of Langley & Banack’s Oil, Gas, and Energy Practice Group. In this episode, Clinton and Stephen discuss the different types of transactions that a mineral owner can enter into with oil and gas companies and companies adjacent to the production of hydrocarbons. The episode eventually turns into two former prosecutors swapping war stories about the different court room fights that they have gotten into with oil and gas companies on behalf of their mineral owner clients.
