Thank you for considering our
Workshop: Right of Way Route Selection course.

It is the most comprehensive course of its kind available today by way of the 300+ years of our unequaled advisory board members' hands on executive experience in this field.

This workshop is designed to allow the student to actually pick a Route on about a 7-mile pipeline project in Texas.  In addition, all discussion is based on Texas, but can be applied to other states, including those with property descriptions using the Rectangle Survey System.

Route selection is based on a collaborative effort by all the disciplines working on a project.

Dear David,

Thank you for the truly informative course held last September. 
I have completed my first year as an in-house landman for a petroleum company and can’t imagine how I could have achieved it without your excellent tutelage.
