In response to the growing complaints by property owners against Big Oil and Gas for inadequately compensating them for drilling on their land, Environmentalist Attorney Stuart Smith of Smith Stag LLC, is launching a nationwide website about mineral royalties fraud.

Complaints include underpaying for oil and gas extracted as well as drilling underneath lands from properties next door without obtaining the rights.

The website — — explains the problems facing property owners and answers some frequently asked questions about dealing with the Big Oil and Gas companies. It also provides an online form for free case evaluation.

To date, mineral properties fraud has taken a back seat to the environmental risks posed by the tracking boom in this country. The website seeks to bring this concurrent issue into the public eye to keep energy companies adhering to the laws and paying their fair share.
