A small, hard-working consulting firm based in Dallas, Texas.  To provide excellent services, a land company must have exceptional landmen.  At the heart of any land company are the people who provide the services. United Basin principal, Chris Sanders, has worked with oil and gas companies, public utilities and attorneys for the last 20 years, assembling a group of highly experienced landmen. All have over five years of experience in the land business, with the majority having at least a decade.  In addition, many of Sanders’s core landmen have experience in the legal industry, including having law degrees. 

Another key to providing excellent land services is staying abreast of developments in the industry.  In order to keep up-to-date, all of our core landmen are members of the American Association of Petroleum Landman (AAPL) and attend continuing education courses. We also have landmen who are members of the ROW Consultants Council, IRWA, and Texas Real Estate Commission.
