The Land departments for EQT’s production and midstream business units negotiate with property owners and those who own the mineral rights to develop long-term, mutually beneficial relationships in the form of a contractual lease or right-of-way agreement. Here is a summary of how the process works:
Phase One: EQT researches the ownership records on each tract of land we are interested in leasing. In some cases, complex ownership records can increase the time it takes to complete this research
Phase Two: Based on research, we will make a preliminary determination regarding the ownership of the gas and oil, or minerals, on each tract. EQT will then work with the owner to enter into a mutually beneficial agreement
Phase Three: The lease or right-of-way agreement establishes the terms of the relationship between the owner and EQT.
