North Carolina Registry of Landmen

The N.C. Department of Environment and Natural Resources is required to establish and maintain a registry of “landmen” operating in North Carolina.  The term “landman” is defined in S.L. 2012-143 to be 

“a person that, in the course and scope of the person’s business, does any of the following:

  1. Acquires or manages oil or gas interests.
  2. Performs title or contract functions related to the exploration, exploitation, or disposition of oil or gas interests.
  3. Negotiates for the acquisition or divestiture of oil or gas rights, including the acquisition or divestiture of land or oil or gas rights for a pipeline.
  4. Negotiates business agreements that provide for the exploration for or development of oil or gas.”

A landman, as defined above, may not act, offer to act or hold themselves out as a landman in North Carolina unless he or she is registered with the Department of Environment and Natural Resources. The Department may deny registration to an applicant, reprimand a registrant, suspend or revoke a registration, or impose a civil penalty on a registrant if the Department finds that the applicant or registrant has does any of the following:

  1. Fraudulently or deceptively obtains, or attempts to obtain, a registration.
  2. Uses or attempts to use an expired, suspended, or revoked registration.
  3. Falsely represents oneself as a registered landman.
