Course Overview Video

Diversify Your Career Skills

This course is a must for those who are getting involved with acquisitions and divestitures for the first
time or for those who have been involved with them for years and brings out some key differences in
the JOA from 1956 through 2015.
It is important to know these differences because in some acquisitions the properties are subject to
older JOA’s such as the 1956, 1977, 1982 or 1989 model form agreement.

Dave,
After finishing your class in August and now it being the first of October, I actually got a job last week working full time for a landman in Santa Fe handling federal leases.   I will tell you that they say what I learned in your class puts me ahead of the game so it was time and money well spent.

Dear David,
Thank you for the truly informative course held last September.
I have completed my first year as an in-house landman for a petroleum company and can’t imagine how I could have achieved it without your excellent tutelage.
