Talisman Royalty Disputes in the Eagle Ford Shale

Canada-based Talisman Energy operated as one of that country’s largest multinational oil and gas exploration companies before being sold in 2015 for more than $8 billion. Prior to the company’s sale to Respol, one of the largest oil and gas companies in Spain, Talisman Energy entered the U.S. market in 2010 with drilling operations in Texas’ Eagle Ford Shale and the Marcellus Shale in Pennsylvania. Three years later, Talisman Energy signed a joint venture agreement with the Norwegian oil and gas company Statoil.

Under the agreement, Statoil assumed responsibility for roughly one half of Talisman Energy’s operations in Texas, which resulted in royalty owners receiving two separate checks every month; one from Statoil and one from Talisman Energy.

Shortly after the agreement was put into action, a former Talisman Energy employee told the company about what he believed were irregularities and inconsistencies in how royalty owners were being paid. However, the employee was fired by Talisman Energy shortly after bringing his concerns to management.

Based on our discussions with the former Talisman Energy worker and our own independent research, Provost Umphrey has filed a lawsuit to make sure that Talisman Energy and Statoil pay Texas royalty owners what they are legally owed.
