As with the Oil and Gas Industry in general, Petroleum Land Management has changed dramatically in recent years. Advances in horizontal drilling and engineering, and the resulting evolution of oil and gas law and lease clauses, computerized land management, databases and software, and the advent of online records and regulatory data have redefined Petroleum Land Management Practice.

About Your Instructor:



Your instructor's experience totals thirty-five years, and encompasses many facets of the industries about which she teaches.  A little less than half those years were spent as a landman, and about the same time spent as a Right of Way Agent.  Squeezed in there is four years spent in Telecommunications Site Acquisition Agent and a little time spent as a Permitter.


“Somehow, I’m driven to find people who yearn, as I did, for a better life and work I can do that suits my talents and abilities.


I love seeing that moment in the eyes of my students when they say, ‘Oh, I get it.’”  Check us out, but remember, this is a demanding business, slackers need not apply.
