Damage Clause- Many oil & gas exploration companies voluntarily pay for damages to the surface. However most leases include a damage clause which specifies that the lessee will be liable to the surface owner for damage to all growing crops and all other items listed in the clause. Some damage clauses omit the reference to growing crops. Some companies add improvements to the site along with any special consideration like timber, pasture or livestock that needs protection. The damage clause should be particularly tailored to the requirements of the individual landowner.
