Oil exploration, also referred to as hydrocarbon exploration, is the field tasked with locating supplies of oil within the Earth’s surface, making oil exploration expert witnesses a valuable aspect of many oil-related lawsuits. Oil exploration expert consulting may provide valuable insight into such areas as oil and gas wells, petroleum engineering, petroleum drilling, offshore petroleum terminals, marine-petroleum, environmental remediation, hydrology, petroleum geology, and other related disciplines, as each may be at the center of potential litigation involving the petroleum industry.
Oil exploration expert witnesses are often knowledgeable with several aspects of the oil and gas industry, such as drilling, hydraulic fracking, oil field systems, petrochemicals, well construction, and other areas pertaining to the practices of numerous oil companies. Like other companies utilizing large areas of land, oil companies are subject to various laws regulating oil exploration and other such matters. Oil exploration expert witnesses may therefore be called upon to provide an expert opinion concerning boundary disputes, breach of contract, pollution, oil and gas fires and explosions, and other such issues affecting the use of land.
Oil exploration expert witnesses also have experience with the many mechanical details involved with the field, including rigging, pumps, and other types of machinery needed for oil rigs and drilling. Other relevant areas include shale, natural gas, crude oil, groundwater, and other materials found during oil exploration.
