NCOG was formed by landowners in Lee County, N.C. out of concern for the protection of our land and landowner rights with regard to oil and gas exploration. We have a keen interest in helping to promote this exploration but we want to do all that we can to make sure that it is done safely.

As Oil & Gas Exploration companies, mostly out of state, have rediscovered gas deposits in Lee County, NC, they have also begun courting landowners one on one in hopes of securing lucrative drilling rights.

The NCOG representation agreement gives our members a voice in the negotiating process.
