Oil & Gas Agency Research

Fast Access to Agency Information

The Banks team of experts has more than 75 years of experience gathering and disseminating information for the oil and gas industry in Texas and throughout the Southwest. Our field experts have the knowledge and experience to access hard-to-find drilling permits and plats, oil and gas well completion reports, production reports, maps and hearing files.

In addition, the unique Banks Landman Report provides critical preliminary information prior to the leasing of oil and gas properties. Typically, clients provide Banks with an area of interest. Our staff then outlines that area on a computer-generated map, provides each well with a unique identification number, and researches that well for current operator, number of acres in producing well’s proration unit, last six month of production, and P&A report for plugged and abandoned wells.
